You know that thing when you wait for a bus and then three come along at once? Well it felt a little bit like that this week on the fabric front.
The lovely Jo alerted me to a sale over at Fancy Moon last weekend. She mentioned Echino and Melody Miller at £10 per metre so I
dashed over casually checked it out; sat next to me on the sofa my husband pointed out a few he liked and later in the week this lot arrived:
So he’s now pondering what he’d like me to make with a metre of each.
This week I also received the last bee block for my month (September) in the Siblings Together bee, so I pieced them all together and then pondered a backing. Not wanting to make it easy for myself I drew this in Touchdraw:
I didn’t have enough of the anything green or blue to make the cross so remembering that I’d seen M is for Make had a sale on I hopped on over to see if they had anything suitable.
This lot arrived on Friday lunchtime:
I’ve not seen these Kona Dimensions before; you can see the hexagons most clearly on the chartreuse of which I bought 1.25 metres, a fat quarter of the red and of the Michael Miller Dumb Dots in Boy and Navy. Before it was time to pick up the children from school I had this:
Since then it’s been pieced, basted and quilted, I just have the binding to handstitch down! Oh, there is nothing quite like quick progress.
As of now (Sunday morning 8:30 UK time) both sales are still on – just in case you were wondering…
Go on over and see what others have been stashing or just acquiring to actually sew with:
