First there was an absolutely necessary order to Mad About Patchwork to get the Konas I NEEDED for QPPP Project #1 - Cardinal and Butter.
And we've got a new fabric shop in the HRM. It's called The Makinso and they had a soft opening a week or so ago. I had to check it out and report back to my MMQG peeps. And it would be rude to go and not support a new small business!
And these tiny gnomes were just so danged cute. They'll definitely make it into DT's Polaroid quilt!Then we had our MMQG August meeting at Patch Halifax. And I was nervous about doing a EPP primer for my guildmates. So I shopped my feelings.
Chris, Patch's owner, brought in Lizzie House's Natural History... almost all of it AND in the colour pathways that I've been ogling for months. Pictured above are (from the top) Dino Exhibit in Navy, Twinkle Twinkle in Navy, and Hall of Gems in Sapphire. I could each and every print in this collection... and I'm seriously considering it. I've wanted Dino Exhibit for a certain project for a dino lovin' friend. More on QPPP #2 at a later date!
And then a ginormous squishy envelope arrived from Pile O Fabrics. I am a weak, weak individual.
I succumbed to another print from Lizzie House's Natural History line - Giants of the Deep in Ocean. If you're keeping track, I now have 4 of 19 prints.
Does this one remind you of anything?
Yup, it's old school bowling scoresheets! It's Score Card in Dark Plum from the Lucky Strikes (Cotton & Steel). Into the low volume/text collection this goes!
But here's the real reason for my order...
It's the Naughty or Nice bundle from Pile O Fabrics. Love, love, love! Cotton & Steel and coordinating Konas and prints all together!
From top to bottom: Stitch Square in Berry, Squared Elements in Pomegranate, Netorious in Gold Mixing Bowl, XOXO in Picnic Gold, Crosshatch in Fern, Crosshatch in Fern, Crossquare in Green, and Dumb Dot in Navy, and Winter Pomegranate in Navy
This bundle, even with our cruddy Canadian dollar at present, was a great deal! And there are still some left! I'm seriously thinking about making that long thought of Christmas quilt for our family!
But now I'm back on track. I'm going to sew instead of buy. Honest! I'm linking up with the other Fabricaholics over at Sunday Stash with Molli Sparkles. Yikes.
