I have a few purchases to confess to and one really handy new gift!
So let's eat that frog and talk about the purchases first.
My favourite place to shop for fabric these days is Instagram. Last week @cotton_factory_destash lured me in with these little beauties ...
How could one resist?! ... and with the Aussie dollar taking a nose dive I was happy to pay Aussie shipping rates.
Hasn't the old EU VAT bizzo caused a few sleepless nights for our pattern sellers? I recently went to purchase a pattern from Kristy at Quiet Play and found only her Free Patterns available in her Craftsy shop ... thank goodness she has opened a Payhip shop!
I bought these two patterns from her using the new shop ...
|Just My Type - Lowercase Paper Pieced Letters|
|Just My Type - Uppercase Paper Pieced Letters|
It was easy peasy and the patterns came through immediately - ahhh that's better. I'll be making good use of these two.
Finally a little present from Hubby for Christmas. Something that will make cutting all the bits for his quilt out a tad easier ...
... no underlying motivation for him buying me this present then?
|New Rotating Cutting Mat!!|
I'm. In. Love. with this rotating mat already ... even took it on holiday with us for the New Years Beach Break ... I didn't end up doing much cutting on holiday though ... you can blame the Veuve ... but if you follow me on IG (@sewgiving) you'll see that it did come in handy for the odd lazy game of Scrabble.
See you over at Molli's place for Sunday Stash.
