Stash building!

Hi all,

I have been stash building this week! My mum and I went to The Quilters’ and Embroiderers’ Store on Friday. We took my youngest son who is 2 1/2, that is another story – my boys do not like shopping!

What a gorgeous shop! Next time I will not be taking children! The middle white and light grey fabrics are from the Sunkissed range, they are the only two fabrics they have at the moment, sad for me – happy for hubby….I would have gotten more! The pretty green print is from the Recipe For Friendship range by Mary Engelbreit, I am planning to make placemats with this and the matching fat 1/4!


They stock the Cosmo threads that I absolutely adore. So I stocked up ready to get started on the Vignette BOM. I matched the threads to the Make Life fabric, so I will have to adjust the numbers in the books. And I threw in a few extras – who wouldn’t!
I also got some hanky linen, I was going to use a solid white for the stitchery's background but the linen has such a beautiful texture I just couldn’t say no!

And I seem to be a winner again at the moment!

I won this fat 1/4 pack from Perri on the Vignette blog.  I love this fabric, it is so sweet and pretty! I bought an extra 1 1/2 metres of the white dandelions. I am thinking of doing a grandmothers garden quilt the Marti Michell way with this fabric. What do you think?

Ps. If I take a few days to reply to your comment it is because we are going away this weekend. Yay!

You are on a roll with all your winnings! Congratulations, once again. I love that fat quarter pack; it would make a lovely grandmother's garden quilt.

Congratulations on your win, I didn't ebnter because I though you should have them, lol. The threads look luscious!
Sorry to say that if your son hates shopping now, he probably won't outgrow that.

I used to work at that store, but different location, I started in 1995 and finished in 2007.

Karen said...

That is one of my most favorite on-line stores. It would be heaven to actually get to see it in real life.
Congrats on the awesome win.
