The only thing busted was last week's give-away.
I was feeling all righteous because I didn't poke any buttons this week - but yet looky what landed from the prior week's button poking!
French Reel kit and backing - 10.25 yards. I know, I know, there's enough Maison de Garance in my stash room to make fifty of these. But isn't that quilt cute? I'm thinking it'll be quick to put together (and then I won't have to cut into that other luscious yardage that I'm saving for just the right project).
See why my stash room isn't big enough?
Then there were 13 yards of Bliss that landed. I belong to the Moda Layer Cake Club and the Moda Charm Park Club at the Fat Quarter Shop. Mostly I give those away or trade them off with Jane, but I decided to keep these and needed yardage go-withs. Needed? Well, just in case I ever actually make anything out of them.
See why my stash room isn't big enough? Oh, yeah, I already said that.
Well, on second thought, I did poke *one* button this week, so I expect a package next week. The 108" backing of Luna Notte finally arrived at Kimberly's, so I had to get some of that. You know, to go with that Luna Notte that I stocked up on several weeks ago.
I finally figured it out. It's like a domino effect. I buy this one simple little layer cake or something, and then I end up with 986 yards of go-withs - because I never know what I'll need when I decide what to make out of it.
I've said this before, too -- I'm the marketer's dream customer!
Oh oh oh, speaking of Market ... I mean, we were talking about Market, right? ... Jane is there getting all full of inspiration and everything. I can't wait to hear her take on it and all the wonderful designers she's met. All I can say is it's probably a good thing I can't go to Market!
And on a sad note, for those of you who live down in this area, Ginger's husband passed away this weekend. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
