A Little Stash
My friend Dawn and I headed out Friday for a little retail therapy. Lots of good swag came home.
First we stopped by Acorn, which was a zoo after her announcement of closing. I only snagged one yard and a pattern. I will go by this week when things settle down and get a few backs for quilts that are close to being finished.
Then we headed to Material Girls. I got a little kit to make a thread catcher and a ruler to make a tubular quilt.
Then we went to Pieceful Gatherings and I picked up a kit to make Star String by Pam Buda in the Primitive Quilts Magazine and a few little snippets. Love the snippets.
Yesterday we were going to head out to IKEA, but I haven’t been sleeping well and didn’t feel like going out there. So the hubby went for a haircut and then we went to breakfast. There is a new quilt shop near by and I had been in there looking at the Civil War Ladies fabric. Mom bought me the FQ bundle and the Civil War Anniversary Quilt book a while ago and I’ve set the bundle aside waiting to make it, but I saw this super cute Hands All Around quilt block and went – so cute, must make!
After it festered for awhile and I saw the fabric was in general no longer available, I bought the pattern – $2 on Ebay – and then ran back to the only store I knew that had it and got the fabric to make it. They had about 2 3/4 yards left, so plenty. I found the pattern on EQ7 and put it on point, so the ladies will be upright. This is just what I’m thinking, but it’s going to be a bit scrappier when I’m done. This was fun to play. I think it’s all ready to go.
When I was buying my ladies I spied this cute postage fabric again and got the kit for the table runner and placemats. I’m thinking I’m going to have to start sewing 12 hours a day, 7 days a week to make everything I want to make. 🙂
Hope you’re all having a very nice holiday weekend!
