Scrap Packs

My local quilt shop, Crimson Tate, has the most adorable scrap packs.  I have really tried to curb buying lots of fabrics recently.  However, I can’t resist these.  They are a great way to get just what I’m looking for a few upcoming projects without blowing my budget.  They are $6.  Do you see the fabric in these?  Voiles, cotton, and linens.

A few weeks I had picked up these two packs after an IMQG meeting.  I didn’t have a project in mind, but I do now.  That’s a secret though for a couple of months.

I went back for Small Business Saturday and was greeted by this lovely person.  We started a line waiting for her to open.  She was so excited and surprised.

Heather with CTI was searching for some reds and aquas for the Schnitzel & Boo IG Mini Swap partner.  Found these gems.  Fingers crossed she likes it. 
scrap pack 3I also found one more to coordinate with the two other horse scrap packs I have above and instantly picked it.  The bottom one was just for good measure and supporting local business.  That’s what I tell myself of course.

David!  I’m stalking Facebook to see what you post the next round of scrap packs that are ready.

 

Giveaway Day

giveawaydaydec8Hello and thanks for stopping by. I’m Tisha, or quiltytherapy.  I make lots of custom baby quilts and potholders.  Things will be changing a bit in 2015 around here, but more great stuff will be coming.

Need a last minute item for someone on your gift list?  These potholders would be great.

yellow canvas bike potholder setI found one last set of some of my favorite potholders and I want to share with you.  They measure 7.5″ x 7.5″, are insulated to resist heat, and have batting to absorb moisture.

Enter by 12:59pm on Friday December 12th and I will contact you this weekend.  You can have the potholders ready to give next week.

To enter just leave a comment with what you really want for Christmas this year, non sewing related in the comments below.  **GIVEAWAY is now closed**

Happy Giveaway Day

Quilting Entertainment

LOTS of sewing has been going on over here.  Growler Girls has two shows in the next 9 days.  Needless to say I’m going to be wiped next week.  With all my recent sewing I have been watching way too much Netflix.

Up next is going to be Christmas movies.  For now I have devoured two shows:  Scandal and Once Upon a Time.  ABC has sucked me in.

Heather Jones did a talk a few weeks ago with Indy Modern Quilt Guild.  She discussed how she watches Scandal while sewing.  My first question was, do you think Olivia ends up with Jake or Fitz?  She was torn and I chuckled.

At this point in the series seeing either on screen is nice.  So I ask you readers, do you think she ends up with Fitz or Jake?  I’m so torn on who she should end up with.  Can they both just take their shirts off and stand there?  Sorry, but not sorry for saying that.

Once Upon a Time has become by go to series recently.  I’ve watched 22 episodes in about three weeks.  Now if only Snow and Charming can have their fairy tale ending.  Regina and Gold are messing up everything.

I love the idea of a show that runs two story lines side by side with the same characters.  Growing up I read lots of fairy tales and wanted to be a princess.  I don’t have a favorite one.  Do you have a favorite princess?  So far the first two seasons have been entertaining as they weave other stories in and out of the main story.


I’m not quite to the end of season 2 but they will happen this weekend as I bust out more products for next week’s show.

What do you watch as you sewing and create?

Thanks to Diane with Craftypod for sharing her viewing choices in a series on her blog.

Holiday Gifts for the Quilter/Sewist

This may be the hardest person to buy for this year on my list.  However I’m looking for something unique and special they maybe wouldn’t splurge on normally.

These hand printed fabrics have caught my eye for some time.

What about a block of the month club?  Something to help work on skills and create a lovely project along the way.  My favorites are Anne Marie from Gen X Quilters.  There is a new one coming out for 2015 that uses curves and some applique.  Hint Hint Santa.

How about a t-shirt to show off their style?  I can spot a quilter by all the threads on their shirt, but this let’s them stand out.   Know their favorite block?  Even better.  This would make a great stocking stuffer.

You can never go wrong with a gift certificate to their favorite quilt shop either.
