I ordered this cute Laurel Burch drawstring bag from Suzanne’s store, Knots & Bolts.  I ordered it Saturday, and it was waiting for me on my front porch when I got home from work yesterday!  That was fast!

I also ordered another marking pencil, and the fat quarter was a sweet surprise! Thanks, Suzanne!

Quilting news of the week is that Joanna’s quilt is coming along quite nicely!

My belated stash report for the week is mostly about what I didn’t buy!  I figure that I saved $516.32 by sticking to my guns and not purchasing more stash right now.  I allowed myself to shop a sale at an online fabric store I love, and put everything in my cart that I usually would have, but then emptied it all out after I got my total.  There was some good stuff in there, too!  Yay me!  I’m close to having saved enough for a linen cabinet I’ve been wanting to buy from Plow and Hearth.  🙂

  1. The quilt is looking good!!!! It’s so bright and cheery. It just looks like a good Spring & Summer quilt.

    I don’t think I have the will power to shop and put it back. 😀 You have to be getting close to having the funds to start the kitchen soon!!!

    I have kind of stalled out on the kitchen progress. I think mentally/emotionally I can only deal with one big project at at time, and I still haven’t gotten the living room all back together from painting it…lol. I can’t stand the thought of tearing something else apart, and right at the holidays.

  2. It looks fabulous! I was going to ask if that was another of your fantastic freehands but I see that has been asked and answered.

    The bag is so cute!

    And congrats on “not shopping.” I’ve been doing the same thing a lot lately myself. Right now there’s a great looking book sitting in a shopping cart online waiting for me to decide how badly I want it – and it’s even on sale for a great price!

  3. I just love happy mail days!

    I would like to know more about the marking pen to, I have seen them at my local quilt shop but no one there has tried them yet! A little review would be great!

  4. Have a couple of those bags and some fabric to maybe make some of my own….but went to the store and was tempted. Wrote to see is she ships overseas.
    Liked a couple of the indigo.s
