fabric give away winner

A Winner and a Mission

The very first item of business to take care of today is the winner of the Birthday Bash!  First, I want to again thank all of you for participating.  It was seriously the best birthday gift I received! (well, except for the $ 😉 )
There were 267 entries- Amazing!! -But unfortunately there can only be one winner.  And she is….

Swensgirl!!  Congratulations, and contact me with your information.

The next order of business is that I am going to take all your advice:

I am going to offer a selection of flowers in my shop.  It’s amazing how a simple change alters the whole look of the bag!

The final item of business:

These are going to become our family picnic quilt.

This is the vintage prequilted fabric I scored from my MIL!

This upholstery fabric was Red Tagged at Joann’s- which are 50% off this weekend.  Grand total? $3 per YARD!!

Simplicity patterns are  5 for $5.  This is what I will be making this summer.  Some of it with my daughter.

My advice for this weekend?  Go Shopping!  I scored so much fabric and stuff yesterday.  The sales are terrific.  All the fabric in the quilt shot, except for 2 cuts, were less than $5/yard.  Most of them were $2 and $3 per yard.  Joann’s has their red tag fabric 50% off.  I got one cut of cotton for $.50/ yard.  A steal!
Now, I need to get sewing.  And playing with my family.
Have a wonderful weekend, honoring those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.
Thank you!!!!

    Wow. Sounds like you did awesome at Joann's. I went today and it was a major disappointment. I bought 10 patterns- including one twice.

    Then, the whole reason I made the trip was for interfacing I thought was on sale, but turns out it wasn't, and I didn't realize until checkout. I spent $30 on interfacing…

    Also, I brought my husband with me to guarantee that I wouldn't even LOOK at the fabrics. Now I'm sad, because your haul looks amazing.

    I too saw your feature on Today's creative blog and wanted to tell you how cute all of your coordinating bag accessories are. Very nice! I hit JoAnn's as well, patterns scored. Took lots of pictures of fabric (that's what I do when i don't have money to buy fabric at the moment!)
