Aurifil Candy. Sunday Stash Share.

Sunday, July 27, 2014

A while back I participated in Massdrop's Aurifil Designer's bundle sale. I managed to pick up this Tula Pink thread bundle, full of variegateds, for about $80.

I have to admit, my mum made this purchase possible. She spoils me. :)

This box is quite literally eye-candy. It felt as though I'd walked into a 50's ice cream parlor when I opened the box:

I've wanted to try quilting with variegateds for some time now; I've seen what other quilters have done with them, and I love the dynamic they add to the right quilt. As well, I'll be able to use them in my Etsy makings, so I thought I'd give them a shot.

Le sigh. I do *love* me some Aurifil!!

I am linking up to the always Pink, always Glittery, Molli Sparkles today for Sunday Stash Share!

Sharing the Coupon Love: Saturday Edition

Saturday, July 26, 2014

Happy Saturday everyone! What are you all up to today?

My best friend in the whole entire world is coming to visit today from Vancouver!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YIPPEE FOR ME!!!!! (yes, I'm excited). I have to make this quick, I have to clean my house until it resembles some semblance of normalcy (well, within reason - I do have an 8 month and 27 month old - I'm not a miracle worker...I'm aiming for 'organized chaos')

So! Got this email in my inbox and thought I would share:
Quick FYI:

Craftsy is having a big sale on their quilting fabrics - it's their Summer Clearance Sale going on right now - email says things are up to 75% off.

There are a few Freespirit and Kaffe bundles there that look gorgeous.

...I also took a peek at their RBD precuts and they are on clearance, too.



In other news, I kinda sorta broke my fabric fast. The Great Fabric Fast of 2014 is over. Kinda fell off the wagon with a massive crash. Of course, I'm hosting the Cotton and Steel swap, so I had to participate in the Melody Miller round. And then I saw these gorgeous, out of print Kate Spain charm packs on an Instagram destash and kinda sorta picked them up.

I may have also bid on a Central Park charm pack (also Kate Spain) in an Instagram auction benefiting #luluneedsaride. I'll be sure to post some pictures of that when it comes in.

And I still have my $10 gift card to Fat Quarter Shop from the super lovely Berry Barn Designs as a gift for hosting the AMB Swap, but me thinks I might be saving that to spend on a Miss Kate bundle.

Sheesh.

Off to pick up my friend at the airport! Loves and stitches, everyone!
