Okay, so it's not Friday but I have received some fantastic sewing related stuff over the last few days! A few weeks ago I got an email from the Fat Quarter shop saying they missed me and here was a 25% off voucher for my next purchase! How can you resist that?? So I got a Kona Solids Jelly Roll in both the Bright and Classic colourway. And also filled up the satchel with two yards of Bella Solids Snow. I'll admit I was dissappointed when I saw it, it's more yellow than I thought it would be, more a cream than a white. Even in the above photo it looks white, but it's cream! Oh well, it will be used for something I am sure.
And from Bec, who has started selling fabric online. Lovely service and supa fast postage, thanks Bec!
And my dear sister sent me a care package. I forwarded on the 25% off Fat Quarter Shop voucher to her, as good sisters do, so she could spend up too. And she brought me two Kona Jelly Rolls as well!!! The magazines are on loan, I will say that for the record, I will post them back! Thanks Ad!
And yesterday we had a lady come to our Quilting Group. I'll admit I am a bit skeptical at these sorts of things, who needs more gadgets! But saying that, look what I came away with! There is a thread cutter pendent which means I can take it on an airplane as it's just a pendent, right?! Some self threading needles which are just amazing! The roll on the right? It is a sew slip mat that you put on the bed of your sewing machine when doing FMQ and the fabric just glides. I tested it there, I was impressed! And this quilt halo thing, its like a heavy metal round loop and you put it on your quilt when you are FMQ and hold that to guide your quilt around instead of the fabric. An aid to FMQ. I'm working up the courage to quilt my wonky house quilt, so I will take all the help I can get!
So even though I live just under 1,000kms from my nearest quilt shop, who says I can't still go shopping!
