Sunday Stash

I popped into my fabulous local quilt shop on Saturday.  Everything there is just so yummy.  I was really tempted by a book on how to make the original sock monkey.  And then I thought, why?  Who would I be making sock monkeys for?  But I did find an on sale bundle of Christmas fabric.  5 half metre cuts.  I love the retro Santa print.  I will have to use it for something where I can leave it as whole as possible because it is just too cute!  What is really silly is that last year, I would not have even looked at Christmas fabric.  I had this idea that so much Christmas fabric is... blech.  You know, big glittery poinsettias and so on.  Oh my goodness, I just needed Christmas fabric educating!

A picked up a fat quarter of these trees from Countdown to Christmas by Sweetwater for Moda.  Cute!

I spent the day at the day at the sewing machine.  I churned out some finishes and some farmer's wife blocks.  I even started a new quilt.  I need intervention.  

Tomorrow is the big Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.  I will be linking up and having a giveaway here.  I will also be checking out all the giveaways on other blogs!!!!  It is so exciting!  


  1. LOVE that Santa how gorgeous! No intervention required - just more sewing!

  2. That has got to be the sweetest Santa print I've ever seen!!! Love him!
