Taking care of business...

I am annihilating my works in progress.  It feels good!  Proverbial Sunshine is quilted, threads sewn in, binding attached and is waiting for hand stitching to finish it all off.  Eep!  How much fun is that!?

We had time to poke out to Chilliwack this morning for Hamel's Boxing Day sale.  We were there before they even opened and they invited me in early.  Nice!  Their regular prices for fabrics are great and then they had an extra 25% off.  Even their Kona cottons.  I also got some Happy Mochi Yum Yum for $4.99 a metre!  Score!  And I found a scrap bag that was pretty awesome.  I used up all of my Stof Pure Style in the white on grey so I scooped some more.  I love that fabric.  It has a really nice weight to it and I love the print.

Have a look...

Fabulous Scrap Bag!


  1. Wow! Impressive - all of it. I love the look of the quilting, and those scores are fab!

  2. Yes, I was there too, but not until nearly 10. I was surprised how few people were there. I used the 25% off to buy matching fabric for backings and flannel. I enjoy reading your blog, and love the quilts you have made.

  3. OMG I love the Stof Pure style fabric, I need some of that! and Kona charcoal I love too, thats what I used to make your pouch.

  4. I'm planning on annihilating the works in progress, decided to re arrange and tidy up the sewing room today instead! That will take another day to finish!! Then I'll get stuck into them. I've discovered I do not need to buy fabric/find ideas/look at anything for a year. There enough there to keep me going until I retire, and I'm only 35!!
