More stuff for my stash

Back from my week-end in Va. Beach. The weather was OUTSTANDING!  Temp reached 91, with a great breeze and no flies.  Water was on the cold side but I was able to stand in it up to my mid-calf.  My son said I was numb, that's why I didn't really realize how cold the water really was. Stopped at 2 quilt shops  in Virginia Beach.  Picked up some new fabric and several pattern books.  Does anyone know wheere I can buy "time"?
