Sunday Stash

Good Morning ! This is the first time I have linked up with Mollie Sparkles Sunday Stash.

I caught  a great sale over at  Craftsy last month and my shipment just arrived on Wednesday. It takes about 3 weeks for items to be shipped from the U.S. to Saskatchewan. A U.S. blogger recently commented that she can order something by 10 a.m. Friday and she’ll have it the next day for weekend sewing ! Not me – by the time I get my order I have already changed my plans for it 5 times 😉

Anyways, here we go…

100_2867

above, moving L to R : Anna Maria Horner folk song, Azalea (3 Yards), Anna Maria Horner 14 pc Folk Song Fat Quarter Bundle,

Kaffe Fassett Classics 15 pc Fat Quarter bundle, Cotton & Steel Simple Patch 6 1/2 Yards, and Jaybird Quilts Hex n More Ruler

100_2868 I was a little disappointed with this fabric – in the picture on Craftsy it looked quite a bit lighter. In person it is almost beige and has tiny flecks of darker bits that resemble finely ground coffee – I actually thought it had gotten dirty somehow during shipping. A very natural looking cloth. I’m sure I will be able to use it in something else but not for what I had originally intended though. The price worked out to be half of what I would have normally paid so – still a bargain !

100_2869 My first Kaffe Fasset purchase !

100_2870 Anna Maria Horner never disappoints !

look at that middle print – my favourite of the bunch  100_2871 but I may have a new favourite tomorrow 🙂

The last item is the hex n more ruler – I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it but I am intrigued – any ideas? please comment !

last night I was looking out my kitchen window and it looked as though there was fire in the sky. Unfortunately I have a lousy camera and this was the best it could do. The building on the right is my creative place. The sunset didn’t last long but it was certainly spectacular. The snow is going quickly, we will soon be on the land readying it for this years crop.

    What a bummer that the C+S fabric wasn’t what you were looking for. I hope you find a great use for it.

      yeah, but I see that even in my picture it looks lighter than it is so I don’t really blame it on Craftsy. I’ll have fun digging through my stash to match it up with something – maybe a post for next weeks Sunday Stash !

    Ooo lovely, lovely new fabrics! I often look at those Craftsy sales but with shipping and the risk of a huge customs charge I’ve never taken advantage! I’ve got no suggestions for the hex n’ more ruler but I’m sure it will be great fun!

      Thanks Mary – your gravatar is adorable. Craftsy’s orders to Canada charge “tax and tarriff” right on your invoice so I am aware of those charges immediately. Another U.S. shop I like ordering from is Hawthorne Threads and they leave it up to the customs people to charge or not. Sometimes I have to pay customs and sometimes not.

    Hi! Looks like your shipment was worth the long wait! Those fabrics are really stunning – so what is your latest plan for them? I always feel a little left out when I see those Craftsy fabric sales – shipping to Europe doesn’t seem to be an option anymore (I think the rules on paying duty have been tightened) 😦
    Nature always wins with the spectacular colours – that sunset looks amazing.

      well… as long as you don’t hold me to it… the KF might get cut into triangles and sewn together with alternating red solid – not an original idea at all as I have seen it more than 1 place. The Folk Song may become a crib sized broken dishes patchwork. Unfortunately though, the fabric doesn’t come with the necessary time to put it all together included ! I shudder to think when I will actually get to these projects !
