I'm in B-I-G Trouble!

There was a box on my doorstep tonight from the Fat Quarter Shop. Good, one of the two or three I was expecting.

Wrong.

It was a whole big box of various clubs, finishing kits, charms, layer cakes, kits.

Tonight I sat down and figured out the yardage in that Robyn Pandolph kit that came in a few weeks ago, A Charmed Life.



Penny likes it! This is a lousy picture. It's a gorgeous quilt.

Anyway, altogether with that kit plus what came in today - 40.58 yards. And I've still have two or three more boxes coming this week.

What happened?

I'm surely set for life in the fabric category, right?

My retirement stash runneth over!

Oh, geez, I just remembered something else that will probably arrive this week......

I don't know. I just don't know.

Maybe these were some things that you ordered in your birthday month and are just coming in stock now?

Well I pushed a bunch of buttons last night and then headed over to M & L for some backings and Kona but I am no where near 40+ yards...OK, its only Monday night! (Gosh that is lovely quilt)((Have you ever been to M & L?)

I LOVE getting packages in the mail, but I think I'll have to live vicariously through you. I don't know if I've ever gotten that much in one package before though. I consider my sewing room my happy place, but I imagine yours must be even happier than mine!

oh boy when you retire can you move close to me so we can sew together? I am happy to share my stash too

Stop feeling guilty!! We're counting on you to have the most fabulous stash and you can't let us down.
You're doing a very good job and when/if I need a piece of "the perfect fabric"; you're sure to have it.
Enjoy!!! That's a beautiful quilt.
Big Hugs, LadyBaltimore

If Penny likes it, that's justification enough, right? :-)

Yvette said...

Wait a minute. Wasn't August or September the month that nothing counts?? Maybe you could pretend you ordered them back then and they are just arriving. LOL

How exciting, you've got to have something to keep you busy.

I for one love all the deliveries you receive for your someday wonderful quilts! Such fun to peek in and see the new stuff!!

LOL Looks like wonderful trouble to me. ;-) And if Penny likes it, you have to have it!~ she has great taste. ;-) Have a happy day!

I thought I was bad a adding to the stash, but I believe you have me beat. My husband informs me that he knows I've bought the same kit more than once, haven't found them both yet, but he assures me I've done it. I'll see something I like and he says, you already have that....I have so much stuff I probably couldn't get it done in 3 life times, much less one, but it's it a fun obsession? I LOVE getting those packages in the mail and getting to fondle all that fabric.

Deb said...

Oh, I forgot to tell you that I have a Molly who looks exactly like your Penny. She's 6 and a wonderful companion. We also have Max who is 3 and red. He's a terror, nothing like her, but we love him anyway. She lets him know who's in charge!
