After making this quilt top and this pillow I got myself all in a frenzy for flannel and the apparent need for flannel pillowcases on my bed. Whilst looking online for yardage I came across this shop and her crazy $5 a yard sale.
These arrived today....
(Karen even slipped in a copy of Quilt Sampler magazine with a feature on her gorgeous store!)
I may have accidentally bought a stack of Anna Maria Horner velveteens on sale too...
Sensory overload. I wish you could reach in and touch them. Just play along with me and do it - stroke the pretties. Nice, huh? Put your face up to them. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh, doesn't that feel good?
Merry Christmas, Katy. You've worked so very hard all year long, you keep such an exceptionally tidy home, and always make wonderful 3 course meals for your family. You never get any treats, you truly deserve this. (I'm sorry - can I hear you lot coughing and spluttering? What exactly do you mean by that, hmm? *hides the toast she was planning on feeding the family tonight and kicks the mess under the carpet*)
Because you know how I always feel better if I've made you buy stuff, have you been checking out the daily deal on Fat Quarter Shop this week? Every day a new deal that is just for that one 24 hour period. I'm not ashamed to say it's the first thing I check when I wake up. Addicted? Me? Pah.... I got an awesome deal this week - 9 yards of Bonnie and Camille Ruby dot for $48. (I realise 9 yards is quite a lot but I'm entirely positive it will prove incredibly useful - I don't even need to half convince myself.)
Oh - and because I'm sure someone will ask - the beeswax in the little pot in the pic there is from here. I'm waiting for a couple of mugs for Christmas presents too. One for this bird. I should chase them up, she'll sulk if she doesn't get something to open on Christmas day.
