Looking at all the fabrics and all of the bright and wonderful colors really did help in making me forget the pain. HA! even though I can't really do much sewing or quilting, I was able to justify my insane shopping spree. It also helped getting 3 more quilt orders--busy, busy, busy, but a little extra mula in my pocket.
So I explained what happened to my poor lil' finger in my previous post. Now i've got photos....the projects that caused the pain, and the items I picked up to help dull the pain haha.
First I was able to get the protective gloves so there will not be anymore sliced fingers.
I picked these up at Joann's and they are priced at $24.99--really helpful... it's already helping and just knowing that I have them, they have taken out some of my fears of using the rotary cutter again.
Now.... the projects that started it all:
So I loved how they turned out, and these to me seem more apprealing than just a plain old crayon roll. The patterns can be found for purchase in etsy....the sellers names are: jcasa & auburn studios.
Now for some eye candy......--the great deals that were going on at Joann's and at my local favorite quilt shop, Webfabrics.
If you haven't noticed, the theme this time around was 'kids' anything kid friendly prints for boys and girls. I also managed to pick up several yards of Woodland Bloom fabric to use as my backing for another quilt I will be making--perhaps this time I may keep it for myself. So these fabrics will most likely turn into more art cases and also various baby items, like quilts, bibs, baby blocks and more. Of course I will share the end results when I have completed them.
So that's it for now....this is what would have been for my Show & Tell Thursday--I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving for those that celebrate it. Thank you all for the kind words and get well wishes :)
