Less sewing, more loot!

Work has really diminished my time at the sewing machine. I’m finding myself not at all wanting to sew once I’m home in the evening, so mostly I’ve just been getting a bit done on the weekends.  But that hasn’t stopped me from getting some new stuff!  Prepare for a photo heavy run down of it all!

Jacquie won a recent give away at See Katie Sew that she had learned about from my blog.  As a thank you she sent me a bit of fabric:

Gift from Jacquie

I love it! Really so nice of her!! Thanks again Jacquie!

I also won a $10 gift card to Wish Apon a Quilt through the Fab Shop Hop.  I spent waaaay too much time on it one evening a couple of months ago but it paid off!  Proof:

New Fabric

And continuing to brighten my week, filled with really good mail, were my Spare Change swap fabric squares! I couldn’t be happier with them… Bold and colorful and of all 24 squares, I already have the fabric of only 1 of them.  I’m thrilled.  Going to have to come up with something fun to make with them.

I also picked up this magazine and I like it!  Loads of stuff in it that I want to try.


Lastly, I spend a couple of hours today at:

Felt Club

While I felt that overall there wasn’t that much diversity in the stuff that was there, (I love me some food plushies – but the fifth sighting was less exciting than the first four) there were lots and lots of beautiful things to look at and enjoy.  I was pretty frugal and just got some beautiful earrings and and some new Sublime Stitching patterns.

And that concludes my new loot wrap up!

    Fun stuff! I’m eager to find my spare change package in the mail too. You received a couple of my orange squares, and the pink/green freshcut square too. Can’t wait to see what everyone makes with these.

    Oh I know, quilting is difficult to be motivated for when you are busy all the time. I love the first fabrics, that was awesome of her.

    Those are fantastic fabrics! I love the orange and white one especially.

    I got my squares too and am designing a quilt in my head. I just have to bind my bullseye quilt and then I start on the Spare Change.

    Lots of fun fabrics! It is hard to do much when you’re tired in the evenings, though. I just heard about that magazine somewhere else recently – it looks like it has some cool projects. I think I’m going to have to check it out. :)

    Great fabrics. I think I already regret not participating in the spare change swap. The fabrics are great. And I just picked up that magazine too. It looks pretty good.
