I added to my stash in a big way this week. One trip to the LQS and orders from three separate on-line stores. Yeah. I was bad. In my defense I only meant to order from one on-line store, but I had to go to three to get everything I wanted. I’m defending myself a lot these days aren’t I? I ran across a blogger recently who proudly insisted “never apologize for your stash” . . . so perhaps I’ll only apologize to the bank account (and The Husband) and not to you all.
Today I’m only going to share pictures of the LQS purchase. It’s meager compared to the on-line ones, but it’s what I had time to photograph this week. Also, I need to find my bag of clothespins before I can photograph the online order how I’d like. The online order is mostly Cotton & Steel with two clearance impulse buys, an Anna Maria Horner (my first), a Sarah Watson and a Tula Pink.
Here’s why I actually went to the LQS in the first place.
I picked up a few quarter yards of Botanics by Carolyn Friedlander for my paper piecing block of the month project. I needed the green for sure and went ahead and grabbed the gold and white in the same pattern as well. I normally don’t prefer gold, but it looks great with the grey and white fabrics in this line. It’s a good thing I splurged too because the newest block uses bigger pieces than I have in the 10″ layer cake I purchased.
This little guy hopped into my bag while I was there.
I couldn’t help bringing him home. I. Freaking. Love. Bunnies. And we have plenty of clover in the yard for him to nibble on.
Mollie Sparkles is probably rolling his eyes at the gooey mushy turn this post has taken.
It’s a fat quarter of Michael Miller fabrics and that’s all the selvage tells me.
I’m thinking some fussy cutting for a paper pieced polaroid picture block. I saw this done over at the Stash Bee blog and was intrigued.
As is my new norm, comments are closed. Here’s why. Thanks for understanding.
