Sunday Stash

I actually went to the Creative Stitches show with a list.  I did not deviate much from it.  I have to admit that this linen scrap assortment was not on my list but who could resist these funky Japanese linen/cotton scraps? Perfect for pouches!  I also picked up a new stitch ripper.  I like them sharp so I end up getting a new one about once a year.  What a difference!!!!  I was ripping stitches like a crazy person today.  Yep.  I have to admit it.  I was doing some paper piecing and I go through stages of messing up and stitch ripping until I get in the groove.

I also wanted some new pins.  These Clover flower headed ones are pretty close to perfection but I actually like the finer ones even better.  And the trim on the wooden spool?  It asked to come home with me.  Who was I to say no?

Off to take some quilt pictures while the sun shines!  Happy Sunday!


  1. I wouldn't have been able to resist that busy mom linen either!

  2. I love the linen. I know everything *I* make is 'dalicious'!

  3. LOOOOVVVVE the Japanese linen fabrics! I have a bunch that I have collected and cannot bear to cut. As for you CLOVER flower pins: were they super expensive? I would love to own these but keep pricing them out and REFUSE the asking price at certain stores. I guess I'll be buying them on my next trip south of the border! You had a very successful shopping trip! Yay!
