Another Sale

Yep, you read the title right.  Another sale is coming to the shop soon.  I know I mentioned doing a tutorial (and I'm still planning on doing that soon!) but after we got home I got sick, then we had company, then I was sick again and then my husband left for a few weeks and I am not feeling well again.  So, needless to say, it's not been super fun around here.  I wanted to sew but just did not have the energy.

With all the time I've spent laying around and sulking because I can't get around and sew and craft and even do the stinkin' laundry I have also noticed that I have an overwhelming amount of fabric.  Seriously, I do.  It's no joke.  I need to get rid of it.  Fast.  Or it might ruin my marriage.  Well, it probably won't ruin my marriage, but it will sure make my man happy.  I'm talking smiling all day because everything is right in the world kind of happy.  I'd like to see that, so... I'm selling a lot of my fabric.  I have quite a few already listed on my etsy shop but I will be listing more, LOTS more over the next few weeks.  It's going to be nicely priced.  I have to get rid of it.  So take a look, and then take a few more looks over the next few weeks and tell all your fabric-loving friends and then buy some.  Please.  I beg you.  My husband begs you.

Still in Arizona

Well, we are still in AZ.  The drive down was long but still fun.  The boys always seem to do so well on long drives.  Part of it might be that I always pack plenty of things to keep them busy.  It also might be that we tend to do a lot of the driving through the night so they get to sleep a lot too.

And I know how boring a post without pictures is so I promise I'll get some pictures posted soon.  Tomorrow we are going out to a town called Oatman with my grandparents and Aunt so I'll get some pictures of that.  It's a neat little tourist town.

I hope everyone's week went well! I hope to be home by next week and crafting away again.  I have a few new things I'm wanting to try sewing up so be prepared for some new tutorials in the next few weeks.

A New Year and a New Sale

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year with their loved ones.  We had our little guys in bed by 9:15 and then me and the husband mostly snoozed through the ringing in of the new year.  I did decide however, that the New Year warranted a generous sale in the shop.  30% off seems good.  Through Jan. 15th.

I have made a few new things and added them to the shop last nite.  Reusable snack and sandwich bags.  They are very neat!  I'm excited about them.  Please stop by my shop and check them all out.  There are many different colors and fun prints.  Here's a peek at some of them.

This one is one of my favorites.  I love the lazy little bee pattern and it makes me think of spring.  As much as I love fall and winter (and that's a lot!) I start really missing my garden and listening to the birds while I sip tea in the morning.  This one is a mini size snack bag.

And how fun is this print right? I could not resist purchasing this fabric.  I'm a sucker for super cute gnomes.  I used up all my scraps of this fabric so there are currently two of these available in the shop and that's all I have! Perfect little size for pretzels or mixed nuts in a child's luchbox or take it with you to the office.

Here's an inside view of this one.  I made all of these bags with a fold-over closure (just like the old sandwich bags from when I was a kid!) and I love it this way.  There's no velcro to gather crumbs.  No snaps to mess with.  Just a simple flip and it's closed, secure and ready to go!  It also makes it very easy for little hands to master opening and closing it on their own.

I love this green scrollwork fabric.  Can't remember where I picked it up or  who made it.  It was just a fat quarter and there was no info on the selvedge piece.

And since yellow and grey seem to be so popular right now, I thought I'd whip a few of these up too.  
Be sure to check them all out as well as everything else in the shop.  I have some precuts listed, a few scrap bundles (more on the way late next week) and lots of quilts, mug rugs and table runners.  With 30% off your total, there's quite a few good deals to be had in the shop.

I'll update here on the blog periodically with more new goodies going to the shop.  We are driving down to Arizona later today (we being me, Jake and the boys).  My grandma has been in the hospital and recently went home after having several surgeries on her heart.  So, we are on our way down to visit and help out for about a week.  I will leave the shop open, but please note that nothing will be shipping until around Jan. 10th.  On the plus side, this gives you more time to shop and buy and when I arrive home I will combine your orders and refund the extra shipping.

Happy New Year and Blessings to you and your family in this bright, fresh new year!
