My added free time and love of quilting has brought on a renewal of a love of fabric. When I saw the new Pen And Ink collection on Connecting Threads, I knew I had to have some! I really love that when your order is shipped it gives you an estimated delivery date but it comes a couple days sooner. My order was supposed to get here Saturday, January 16 but it arrived Thursday the 14th. It may be because I'm technically in a rural area but it's really close enough to the big city that it doesn't take much longer.
I got the Zip Zip bags kit, the Jazz Age table runner along with one 10 inch square sampler set of 17 fabrics in that collection. I also got some clearance stuff, 5 inch square packs and a set of fat quarters. I love getting new fabric & petting them!
Then, I got the JoAnn's ad in the mail. Anti pill fleece was 70% off so I bought 4 yards for window blankets. While there, I found a lovely navy knit that looks nice on both sides. I got 3 yards. I'm thinking of making a reversible skirt & shirt or dress with it. My bag pattern said I needed 3 zippers so I got those and I had a 20% off coupon too. If I like the way the bag turns out, I'll buy more zippers online. I just really wanted to make at least one this weekend.
I feel kind of bad about buying all this so I told myself I have to use it & make it ASAP! The window blankets are already done. Let's see how the rest turns out.
