I Tried... And Failed Spectacularly

I've been avoiding going to Target since the Liberty of London collection was released in mid-March.

Then yesterday my dear husband got this grand idea to go to Target to get something for his parents. I didn't even think anything of it until we were about to turn into the parking lot and I shrieked "Nooooo I cannot go to Target!! Liberty of London!!!! I am weak!". To which my husband replied, "Then just stay in the car."

Yeaaaaaah... No.

Now, I know I make quilts and it's stupid to buy one but look at all that pretty! And honestly, it costs less than if I were to make a king quilt. That's my logic and I'm sticking to it.

I'm already using the bag. I can't help myself.

And this little guy was just too cute!

How could I not take him home? Look at that little bum. Cute. Even the hubs loved him.

I did show a lot of restraint. I had another bag and a few dresses in my clutches before I came to my senses (well, that's relative) and got what I had to have. Please note that I did not say what I needed.

So a word of caution. If you need to go to Target and do not intend on succumbing to the gorgeousness that is Liberty of London, I suggest you invest in a good pair of blinkers. Otherwise, just prepare your poor little credit card for the massacre that's about to take place.

Consider yourself warned.

Yep, got that quilt myself... way too easy to rationalize the expense (or lack thereof). But there are no piggies to be found in LA!

So pretty! I would have done the same thing, so don't feel guilty!

Too late. I already succumbed. The first day actually. :) We needed a Rx filled and I bravely volunteered to be the one to do it (at Target of course) and just happened to browse the aisles while the pharmacy was doing it's job. I was good though - only bought a shirt. But I surely loved admiring everything else. Then I got online that night to see what else I'd missed. I'm thinking I might go back for a swimsuit. I almost bought a pair of boxer shorts just to cut up for the fabric. :)

I love your Hope Valley Quilt! My, you are brave this week!

those are some great finds! I succumbed to the stationery and binders a few weeks ago. I'm a paper lover at heart :)
