Aside from the crazy order I got last week from Wawak for more zippers (216 in total!), I found this A-MAY-ZING online store located in Fort Worth, TX.
Jodie and the gals over at The Fort Worth Fabric Studio have such a great online store, PLUS they've got a totally awesome blog with tons of patterns and tutorials. My mail organizer I made a few weeks back came from their blog :D I grabbed a few of their "Friday Bundle Batches" from a few weeks ago and checked out. The next day I realized I forgot to order one and placed a second order. They've got such great customer service that with a quick email, Jodie was able to combine the two orders and ship them together. Easy peasy! Ordered on March 4/5 and received it on 3/7! Lightning fast shipping :D
Here's what I got....
- Friday Bundle Batch Exclusive - Garden Notes and 1/2 yd of Pinhead Fog by Michael Miller
- Friday Bundle Batch Exclusive - Pink Limeade and 1/2 yd of Mini Confetti Dots Pink by Dear Stella
- Friday Bundle Batch Exclusive - Silent Movie and 1/2 yd of Crackle Black by Windham
If all that isn't enough..... I went to JoAnns. Not once, but TWICE over the weekend! Went right after work on Friday, only to grab some more yarn I needed to finish up my Baby Brights Scallop Blanket. The yarn wasn't on sale, but I had a bunch of 50% off coupons to use. That was the ONLY thing I was supposed to get. Weeeeellllll.... you know how that goes. Lol. Came home with just a wee more than I had planned on.
|The ONLY things I went into JoAnn's For!|
|The additional stuff that "jumped" into my cart before I left the store|
And THEN... on my way home Friday night I realized I forgot the batting I needed. I'm making a Doll Carrier for my niece's American Girl Doll. Bought the fabric and the bias tape and everything.... forgot the batting. I don't normally use this kind of batting, so I don't have any scraps. JoAnn's had all their batting 50% off, so I was kicking myself for not grabbing it. This would just have to require another trip... doesn't it? Lol.
Grabbed the batting, plus some more Warm & Natural since they were on sale as well. Again, that was all I was going in to get, but somehow my cart ended up full again. Lol. I grabbed enough flannel to make 4 of my little Cuddle Blankets for my in-progress Etsy store I'm putting together, and then I made the mistake of going over to their remnant bin. 50% off the current price per yard. With the Anti-Pill Fleece Solids already on sale for $4.99/yd, most of these remnants only cost me a little over $1. Don't really have a plan in place for them, but I'm sure I'll think of something. Lol.
That's IT! Well, until I go to the Sewing & Quilting Expo here in Cleveland in two weeks with my mom. I've gotta save pennies for that trip!
|"Ransacked" the remnant bin!|
|Flannel for 4 Cuddle Blankets and 1 Self-Binding Receiving Blanket, and "Dr Who" fabric for a shirt for Hubby|
|Always needed cotton batting, plus some new crochet hooks and a case|
Looks like I've got a LOT to do. Best get back to work so I can "un-bury" myself from the piles of stuff in my craft room!
Happy Monday Everyone!
