Just a quick post to say hi and show off some of the newest additions to my stash over the last few weeks. First up is 2 lovely Pretty Potent fat quarters from Mad About Patchwork, after my Pinwheel Stars baby quilt was featured on her blog series, Flickr Friday. I was flattered and pleased, there are some fantastic photos and quilts being picked each week.
Next I stopped by my local Shoppers Drug Mart (which is a chain carrying pharmacy, beauty supplies, shampoo, greeting cards, cookies…I guess it works) and picked up a copy of Fresh Quilts. Wow. $11.95 plus tax and worth every penny, there are some great patterns in there!
On the other hand I picked up these two magazines in the local thrift shop for fifty cents each (thanks Hilda). The samples in the pictures are made up in slightly more traditional fabrics, but I could see that there were some great ideas to build on in the modern fabrics I prefer. (I could have bought 10 or 12 issues, but I decided not to be greedy).
And why am I dreaming? I don’t know, I should be sewing but my sewjo is on vacation. I’m sure it will be back soon. Linking up to Molli Sparkles for Sunday Stash.
