Sunday Stash - Mega Haulage Ahead!

Molli Sparkles

I was a BBAAAADDD girl over the past week and half or so!  The mailman has been bringing me lots of "Happy Mail" full of yummy quilting goodies!

First up is my (first) order from Connecting Threads:

Fuchsia - Tomato - Butter - Aqua - Midnight - Sandstone - Taupe - Latte - Espresso - Slate

I wanted to take advantage of their killer thread sale ($1.79 each down from $2.79 each).  Most of the colors I wanted were completely sold out by the time I went to place my order, but I did manage to get quite a few to start building my thread stash.  Most of them match upcoming projects, and then I grabbed a few just to have :-)  Couldn't pass up the sale!!

Next we have my second order from Connecting Threads:

Wine - Tea Rose - Meadow - Lichen - Lime - Calypso - Hyacinth

Next up is yet another order from Missouri Star Quilt Company

The Home For The Holidays fabric is for making a matching table runner to the Christmas Tree Skirt that I have planned.  I LOVE this fabric and just can't get enough!  I know I'm going to have more than I need, but I'm sure I'll find something else to make with it.

The A Beautiful Thing Charm packs were the Daily Deal one day last week.  I had no plan for them, but I just loved the patterns so I had to get it!  The Sunflower and White Kona fabrics go with the charm packs and I've now got a Lucky Charm Quilt on my ever-growing "To Do" list.   No recipient in mind for this one, just want to make. 

Here's a teeny, tiny order from

I'm going to be making my MIL a quilt using the panel and some Wizard of Oz fabric I grabbed on my most recent Missouri Star order (which should be here sometime this week).

Finally, a quick little order from The Fat Quarter Shop.

SORRY for the lousy picture!!  It got dark on me too quickly last night and I had the worst time trying to get a picture.  The Downton Abbey fabric is to go along with the fat quarters I won from  Audrey at Glory Be Quilter last week.  I'm going to do a Yellow Brick Road quilt for my grandma for Christmas with this one, and I'm so excited to see how it turns out!  These fabrics are GORGEOUS and I can't wait to get started!  The Bountiful Harvest fabric is to make a muchly-needed table runner for my coffee table.  We got new furniture a couple of months ago and the coffee table is scratching easily :(  Hopefully a table runner with help with that!

Add all this to the gigantic haul from JoAnn's I got last Friday... and the TWO orders that I'm waiting on from Missouri Star, AND the third order from Connecting Threads..... I'm good to go for a LONG while!!  After those orders, I'm done!  I'm completely cutting myself off from shopping until I get more projects done and limiting myself to only purchasing stuff that I need to finish a project.  No more fabric.... no more notions... no more thread.  I'm going "cold turkey"... wish me luck :-)

Have a wonderful Sunday, and a great week to come!


  1. WOW - loads of stuff! You could always make place mats to go with your table runner, if you have a enough left over :-) Have a great week.

  2. Oh my goodness what a lot of stashing! Makes me feel so good about sticking to my fast!! You have plenty to keep you busy if you really do go cold turkey!! thanks for linking up
