Spot Shopping and Brushing it Up for Sunday Stash Share

Sunday, February 7, 2016

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Hopefully the weather is nicer where you are. I'm so done with winter. My lawn is an absolute mud pit. Snow, melt, rain, ice rain, melt, snow, melt. MUD.

I keep telling myself it's good for my grass/bushes/soil/whatever to try and put a positive spin on it.

So how 'bout some brightness to cheer myself up? Don't mind if I do. Hahah!

Sharing some goodies today:

First up:
Pepper Cory's new "Brushstrokes" line from Studio E. YUM. I love love LOVE her peppered cottons - I really like the texture they give, and the weight of them. They're not really light weight like shot cottons are. So you can imagine my excitement when these Brushstrokes arrived on the scene.

I managed to get them for a pretty great deal on Massdrop. I almost picked some up in the Fall and am glad I didn't - I saved a chunk of change by waiting. Plus I didn't have a project to use them for, so I could wait.

Next up:
Vintage Picnic mini charm pack. This was a surprise package from a CMQG friend that just magically arrived in my mailbox this week! What a wonderful little treat - she knows me so well - I do love me some Bonnie and Camille. Thank you SO much, Sally. You really, really cheered me up and the absolute perfect time. Mwah!

And lastly...
I may have hit the Spot dollar section at Target again - these little ceramic jars with the chalkboard labels are so perfect for all sorts of things - binding clips, curved pins, D-rings, my quilt and business labels, etc. I had picked up 4 on a previous shopping trip and saw these on Wednesday, the last 2 on the shelf, and scooped them. They look great on my stash shelf!

Today I'm linking up to Molli Sparkles' Sunday Stash Share!

Work In Progress Wednesday: Getting Atomic

Wednesday, February 3, 2016

This'll be a quick one - I'm madly trying to quilt this beaut while writing this blog post, all while the kids are (supposed to be) napping.

I hear banging and thumping overhead from one bedroom, and singing (mostly of Disney princess movie tunes) from another.

Recently, The Chicago Modern Quilt Guild and its members were invited to participate in a few special exhibits for the upcoming Rosemont IQF show in Chicago this April, and I thought I'd throw my hat in the ring for one of the categories.

I've been working on this project - and I won't show all of it - but it's been a ton of fun to work with all of these retro, atomic age textures:

More on this soon. The deadline is fast approaching, I'd better move my butt!

Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced today for WIP Wednesday!

Holding Myself Accountable...(and checking one off the list)

Monday, January 25, 2016



Right!

So I'm a list-maker. Through and through.

Back in December, I made a list of goals of which I'd like to accomplish in 2016 with respect to my quilty habits.

Here's the post, but basically, this is the list:

1. Complete a quilt for myself!
2. Complete at least one UFO quilt project
3. Earn at least $1000 in online surveys toward a longarm
4. Enter at least one quilt in a show

In order to keep myself accountable, I made up that little graphic at the top of this post and then plopped it over in my sidebar with that list staring me in the face every time I log on to the ol' blog.

and - 

Oh ya, notice something???? I've already checked something off! I entered my Color Wheel quilt into a show for February. We will see. 

I've also been working on something else for the Chicago IQF show - with submissions due Feb 12. I better move my butt!

Scrumptious Sunday Stash Share

Sunday, January 24, 2016

Things have been a little rough in the Sew at Home Mummy household as of late.

My husband had lower back surgery in December, and was doing really well the first 3 weeks of recovery, but then something changed. He's been in excruciating pain for 2 weeks now, in and out of doctor's appointments and labs and MRI scanners. It's been tough on him.

Because he's basically incapacitated, I've been having to do everything - all the driving, cleaning, cooking, and more.

I don't want to complain - but I'm exhausted. I quite honestly don't know how single parents do it. I have a brand new appreciation. 

Anywho - I think what I'm trying to do is justify my recent fabric splurges. Hahaha. Ooops. I deserved them??

First up is this gorgeous charm square pack of an out of print Bonnie and Camille line for Moda - "Scrumptious" - 


I love their stuff. It's so vintage-y pretty. I picked this one up on Instagram under the hashtag #thegreatfabricdestash.

I'm still waiting on my other purchase - a Pepper Corry bundle of her new line, "Brushstrokes", which I picked up in a drop on Massdrop for $40. I'll share pictures of that when it arrives.

I've been eyeing the new line Carkai, but I think I'll hold off. My exhaustion shopping has to stop! hehehe
