Wednesday Is New STUFF Day!!

Want to see all the new stuff I got recently?

OK. Let’s go!!

First…..

Wrought iron quilt hanger with a heart. Found this on eBay.

It fits my Dresden Plate mini quilt perfectly with a couple inches to spare. Now I have to either sew on hanging tabs in the back or make a hanging sleeve.


Books. I really loved the Jesse Stone movie series with Tom Selleck that I bought a couple weeks ago. Dark but mesmerizing. I love the characters.

I so wanted to know what happened to Jesse after the last movie, No Remorse, that I bought all the books. I received these yesterday. Two more to come. I will start with the first book, Night Passage, and work my way through them all.

I recently switched to all cotton for sewing my quilt tops. Didn’t like it at first. Seemed to curl up around the sewing machine needle when I pulled on it. Figured out it was just the first few inches doing it probably from being wound so tightly around the spool top. I am trying some new threads too. Variegated and transparent. Will let you know how I like them.


Baskets.

Too cheap to pass up. From JoAnn’s. $8 for the larger one. $5 each for the smaller ones. I am going to use them for fabric scraps. I can easily stack them if space becomes an issue.


Quilting supplies.

Got my giant clips, my soapstone, my gloves, more rulers. And about 800 bent quilting pins. Do I have enough!!


Then got all of this for $12 from my brother-in-law’s Resale Shop.

A huge picnic basket, 3 clocks THAT WORK, 3 curtain rods that I hope to use to hang my quilts. What a deal. Yay!!


And last… I saved the best for last.

FABRIC. OMG!! Please!! Someone stop me!! Please send the Popo. The Fabric Police. I need help. 😀

I got Fat Quarters, batik charms, Moda solids, novelty charms, flowers, butterflies, polka dots, circles and more dots, flannel. Even BABY themed fabric.

This is the fabric I told you about. I am using it for the sashing and the back of my t-shirt quilt. Cute huh? Kind of kiddie but I like it.

Well… That does it for my Shopping Sprees. I think I have done my part in getting the economy moving.

What have you purchased lately? Do tell.

    No shopping for me lately, but my next purchase will be some cheap red satin to finish cutting the lining for my last unfinished sewing project. Just need to scavenge a few dollars first! lol

  4. Crystal says:

    Lots of good stuff, Donna!!!!!!! 🙂

    I am no help to you with the fabric problem. I have very little strength to resist *anything* in Joanne’s, Michael’s, or any other sewing/craft store!!! 😉

    I would love to go shopping with you I want all that stuff. recently I went to a sewing expo and bought nine yards of material and an expo shopping bag oh I had such a good time.

    Nice stuff! For me buying lately it’s technique and instructional books for crafting, stone and beads with some cloth. If I wasn’t crafty I might actually have a real savings account!
