As many of you know, recently the business I worked for changed hands. I did not want to work for the new owner, mainly because I had such a positive experience with the team that we had and everyone else was leaving and moving on and I didn't want to be the only one left. I like to choose my bosses, and even though the new owner seems nice, I really did not want to have to "start over". Hubby is also much happier with me home, so to me it seemed like a no brainer since I would have time to use up my many yards of stash!
The down side to all of this is that I can no longer buy whatever I want fabric wise. I allow myself a small weekly allowance for my small wants and needs. With the price of fabric going no where but up, this means at most I can afford to purchase a yard or so of fabric, and forget about buying bundles of new lines. Usually this does not bother me, but I fell in love with Summersville, and now with another new one that I can't remember the name for off the top of my head that is coming out in August (take a breath!!). Anyway.. I can't just buy fabric just because I want it anymore.
( Found it! "Mama Said Sew" by Sweetwater.)
This morning I had to order some Kona of a specific color for Bee blocks. I wanted the free shipping (this is why I've been saving my 'allowance' for a couple of weeks so I could buy enough to get free shipping) so I chose the two prints of Summersville that I like the best:
And some Kona solids that will compliment them since I already have the quilt planned in my mind. I figured there was no sense in counting on winning any so I better take matters into my own hands! LOL! I told my daughter that I am going to save every penny I get between now and August so that I can get a fat eighth bundle or a fat quarter bundle of the other one. Now I just have to go see if I can find it again since I forgot to bookmark the site where I saw it!
Back to work on my May Doll quilt swap quilt. It is turning into one of those that will be hard for me to send on it's way!
