Gifts in the mail, and a sale

I was doing the happy dance just a few minutes ago!  I received the sweetest gift in the mail from my blogging buddy, Amy, at Amy Made That!

And I have been busy using my new stash to create new things!  Remember this stack of teal fabric I recently acquired?

Last but not least, I know you guys enjoy a good sale, and you can find one at Craftsy this weekend. Enjoy up to 80% off all inspiring project kits and supplies. I saw some amazing deals on fabric (not that I need anymore).  Shop now to find your next awesome project during the Stash Of Possibilities Sale. Hurry, offer ends at 11pm PST on February 24, 2014.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  See you on Sunday!

  1. Julie, you are a lucky girl! What a thoughtful pincushiony gift! Makes me want to take a break from my bigger projects and focus on some cute little scrappy items! I’ve been working with teal, too, and am finding it to be such a fun color!

  2. Hi Julie! I really love those colors together! That looks like a QCR pattern. Is it Metro Rings? I seem to recall you working on one similar in blue and brown batiks. If my memory is right (rare, really) how did that one turn out? I have had a pile of batiks and the pattern waiting for me but haven’t found the fabrics for the corners yet so there my pile sits!
