A New Winner

First things first. Unfortunately B' never responded to me so I had to pick a new winner of the Daisy Janie Shades of Grey fat quarter set. Mr. Random Number Generator picked lucky number...

Happy Birthday! Congratulations on your 100 followers. This weekend I am watching my granddaughter and having dinner at my daughter's house on Mother's Day.
Congratulations Miki! I will be contacting you shortly to get your your prize.

It's going to be a happy day, right? Work has been a bit of a struggle lately and while I should be celebrating because I am wrapping out on the project today, I'm feeling a bit conflicted because I'm leaving the project in limbo and I hate leaving things unfinished. I am already 6 weeks past my contract end date and I can't stay any longer because I've committed to another project but it's tough to leave nonetheless. So how do I cope? Retail therapy of course! First I did a little stash building by adding some Shades of Grey to my collection.


Then I happened to see that there was a Red Letter Day fat quarter set lurking around Etsy. I missed out on this line before so I jumped on the chance to scoop some up!


I ran out to my LQS to pickup some fabrics for do. Good Stitches bee blocks. Robyn wants "true" green and white blocks for May. Green is my favorite color but ironically, looking through my stash I realized that much of the green I have tends to shy away from the green apple green that Robyn requested. So I just had to pick some up. Luckily the Riley Blake Christmas line just hit the shelves of Sew Modern so I picked up some Candy Dots and Christmas Candy.


And Natalie got a jump on her June block and requested the gorgeous color combo of chartreuse and raspberry. And I spied some of Patricia Bravo's Dreaming in French line that I thought would be perfect. Then I threw in a little Tina Givens too. Delicious!


Well my lovelies, it's not all stress and angst. I'm actually going to be taking a little bloggy break because I'm escaping the rat race and heading to Kauai for the next week. Yes, you can all hate me. I understand. And although I will be lounging on a beach, sipping Mai Tais, I'm also pulling a little stash builder package for Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day! Stop by on Monday to join in the fun! Aloha dolls! I'll be back soon!


  1. Aloha! Have a fabulous time on the beach, and don't forget the sunscreen!!!

  2. Oooh great find with the RLD! If you feel the need for more I noticed that Hawthorne Threads just got some back in stock!
