Time to put the clocks ahead one hour (for at least eastern North America). Crossing my fingers that a certain 4-year old will actually go to bed at the “new” seven-o’clock.
I’ve been sick for a couple of days, so I haven’t done any sewing, but I do have a happy mail day to share with you. I haven’t bought much from fabric.com in the past, but since I get their e-mails I learned about a sale on Robert Kaufman prints at 15%…how could I resist getting backing for a flannel baby quilt using these fabrics (that I haven’t even pieced yet, for shame!).
And then Kona white was only $4.68 per yard. I want to make one mostly white quilt, just to cross that off my Quilty Bucket List, so now I’m set. This photo compares my previous purchase of PFD (prepared for dyeing). I’m not sure there is a difference in the photos, but in person it does seem to catch the light differently. Have you experienced any problems mixing different orders of white Kona?
The prints for this pattern by Freshly Pieced will come out of this pile of charm squares from a flickr swap. I really wanted to use these in a single project (because in the end, they were rather expensive on a per yard basis), rather than mish-mashed into my stash, so this pattern will be perfect. I hope to get this finished by next winter.
And while I was at it I picked up 3 spools of Aurifil thread, yum. And these two half-yards of Anna Maria Horner Dowry followed them home. This all came in one huge box for $18.40 shipping (and no tax, shh) so I think I’ll be shopping there again.
I had felt guilty about this haul until I saw Molli Sparkles’ loot, so please hop over to Sunday Stash hosted by Alisa at A Stitch Between for some fabric love!
