Quick Post

We've had a heck of a problem with staying connected to the internet the last couple of weeks so I just have a new purchase to share with you. I am in fear of being bumped off again. These fabrics were ordered from Fabric Shack, and look at the bonus goodies they sent - a package of machine needles, size 11 and 14. The larger size are great for paper piecing. I'm done with the piecing of the Spiderweb, but see future string piecing, and so I'll store these away. The size 11s are my choice for everyday piecing. They also sent a free pattern. And, all of this shipped for the unheard of price of $2.50! You can be sure I'll be looking their site up again!

I know I'm pushing my luck, but look at those madders! They are from a new line called, Brick House. Am I the only one who is singing that song inside the brain?! The deep blue is from American Jane. I had a fat quarter from somewhere, and have searched for more, with no luck. Fabric Shack had it on sale. This blue is very close to true, antique indigo. Grab some if it's still left!
Ugh, I've been knocked off here a couple of times, so I'd better post now!

Hi Jan...as Kathie says - there are 3 American Jane pindots - blueberry, surf or cadet...which is the one you bought? Its so hard to find a good spot, and more so an indigo spot!

Hi Jan, Could you please tell me what line the brown fabric with the red and white squiggles is from? I looked up Brick House, thinking it was from that group, but it wasn't there. I NEED some of that fabric! Thanks, Michele

I love the Fabric Shack and I am lucky enough to live about 30 minutes from the actual brick and mortar store. It is an awesome adventure!!
