Sunday Stashing

Good Morning,

This weekend is the 200th post for Sunday Stashing @ Molli Sparkles. (sorry, running a little late) A few weeks ago I got a lovely $25 Gift Card to the Fat Quarter Shop. Well, you know how hard it is to stop at one fabric, so I ended up with several beautiful yards.
I adore the metallic fabrics and these are all metallic (except for the small pouch on the right). The uppermost print is Suffolk Metallic Black Floral, the middle fabric is Holiday Flourish Holiday Holly & Ribbon, with the bottom print being Holiday Flourish Frost Branches in Ivory. 

Now the reason that the Suffolk yardage looks so thick, is because I grabbed 3 yards to make a skirt. The other 2 are about a yard each. There is actually a 4th piece that I do not have a proper pic of, because it is a panel, so I grabbed this pic from the FQS. 

The 2 Holiday Flourish prints are for borders and binding, so this becomes a Christmas lap quilt. (trying for 44" square)

Along with my order, the Fat Quarter Shop nicely included a Block Nine kit from the 2015 Designer Mystery Block of the month. A very delightful surprise!
Linking up with Molli Sparkles to celebrate his 200th Sunday Stash!

Garage Sales and Things

I like to go to yard sales & garage sales. There is always something interesting to look at and you never know what you will find. I have been wanting more bobbins for my featherwieght, but haven't gotten to buying them. Last week there was a sale at an apartment complex nearby and they had this little chocolate box.
Inside were a bunch of bobbins.
Only 3 for the featherweight.
But for $1, who can say no? 3 original featherweight bobbins are definitely worth $1 to me. Now I would have no idea what the others go to, but these 2 are still in their packaging.

In case the picture is a bit small, it reads: for 290, 1411, 1425, 600 & 700 class Athena Touch-Tronic 1060 sewing machines by Singer. There is about 14 of them, altogether. So, I am giving them away to whoever wants them. You can even have the little pink buttons, if you like.

I will leave the giveaway open until Sunday, October 9th. Just leave a comment on this post. (please note: candy box not included)
