First let me say that the Spring Cleaning Sale is still going strong at the Webshop. Free shipping on orders over $25 ($30 international) too! And I really am Spring Cleaning, I was just using a handy Kelmscott needleminder to gather up a bunch of pins that had spilled under my desk and were living with the dust bunnies! I have to make room for all the good things that will be coming in the door after the Online Needlework Show – April 16-21!
Here is my haul from last week. First I’ll let you have the short list of what made my week just a bit rough: a car accident, a sick boy, a new class with an irksome professor, cooking meals for 55 people for a week, one dinner for 70, and 3 papers due. I think I’ll leave it at that.
Now to the good stuff!
Photo 1: These items came from the home of Fabric Bliss (see part 1 of this post). I had a little stack of fat quarters along with this quilt design when I got to the register, and then I saw this little pillow. Well, I couldn’t be ridiculous and buy both the stack of fabric and the pillow, so I made a bit of a trade and only got two pieces of fabric, the pattern, and the pillow.
Photo 2: Hobby Lobby had all their metal ware 50% off last week. I splurged and picked up 3 metal ware items (see photo 3 also).
Photo 3: The other metal ware and some of the cases I can’t resist from Michael’s.
Photo 4: I did a bit of online shopping too! Isn’t this little guy the cutest??
Monique’s latest great idea – I hope I never have to use it, but I snapped it up before someone else did. I think he may need a very special pincushion to rest on…
Photo 5: I was asked about this pillow that was peeking around the side of something in a previous post. Here is a better picture of it. It is a free design from Tanya at The Sampler Girl. As a shop owner I feel honor bound to promote the designer’s work (not just her freebies) so here is a link to some wonderful Jane Austen designs by Tanya (the quote on the pillow is from Northanger Abbey).
PS – you can find the quilt pattern here.
