** I am currently procrastinating sewing so I thought I’d blog instead
** Why I have no idea because I’ve looked forward to sewing all week!!
** I suspect it is being so tired today. We are all having a stay at home and do nothing but loll about in our track pants day. (Well except me who’s cleaned my house from top to bottom & done 5 loads of washing – perhaps that could be the reason I’m tired!!)
** The only exciting thing that I have to report this week (and it’s mega exciting at that) is that I have had some FABULOUS parcels arrive in the mail… I think probably my best mail week ever!!
Firstly an UBER generous return swap from Jamie-Lee…
Seriously how generous was she?! Goodies for my girls, 2 blocks for my cheeky quilt and oodles of fabric goodness. Thank you thank you THANK you Jamie! I really love it all and can’t wait to get sewing. I hope you loved my parcel to you just as much!!
I will show off the blocks that Jamie made me properly at my next WIP Wednesday post but for now you just get this sneak peak.
Secondly a charm pack of the latest Denise Schmidt line for Joannes/Spotlight from Leona:
Reviews on this fabric line have been mixed online but I actually really love it! I think the colours and prints are more me than the Picnic & Fairgrounds range. So I can’t wait to put these to use – thanks Leona!!
Thirdly I may have had a little crazy big splurge during a recent Fabricworm sale….
|Scraps down the front & half yards down the back…|
I love that place & have only ordered from there once in the past. But it was such a good sale & I also had a coupon so I went a little crazy. (Works out better for postage if you order it all at once – that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it 😉 ).
I think this may just be my most favourite ever order of fabric! It is sooooooooo delicious in real life!! I also bought my first ever purchase of laminated cotton, so I can’t wait to give that a go in a makeup pouch and see how I fare with it!
** I think it’s just as well that I don’t track how I’m going in terms of using my stash instead of aquiring it because I sure wouldn’t be doing very well at the moment!! But that is the last fabric purchase for a while, honest. Well the last planned one at least LOL…
** I was a bit embarrassed to show that to you to be honest, because it’s making me feel very spoilt and decadent! But obviously I decided to anyway…
** Ok I’m going to stop procrastinating and go try shirring for the first time while Abbie is still sleeping.
Wish me luck…
