Honey Pot Bee Fabric Pull {Sunday Stash}

I thought I had a bit more time to figure out what fabric I wanted to use for the Honey Pot Bee and then, bam! Molli went and threw in an early Wild Card Surprise last Wednesday! I had a full week, but I was able to at least accomplish going through my stash and curating my fabric pull...

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to sort the charms into rainbow order. Alison Glass's fabrics just beg for that kind of organization, don't...

Sunday Stash {10/16/2016}

When I got an email from BackSide Fabrics announcing a one day only sale on Monday, I went ahead and picked...

Alison Glass Charm Swap, Group 2

Alison Glass Charm Swap

I am hosting an Alison Glass charm swap! I have a project idea that is going to require a lot of different Alison Glass prints and 5 inch charms would work perfectly, so this is a completely selfish swap. But after testing the waters, I think that there should be enough interest to make this a fun swap (beyond being...

August Stash Builder Box & Giveaway

Sometimes life just does not go quite the way I have planned. I am guessing you might be able to relate; this seems like a universal happenstance.

LV Sunday Stash {20160710}

As much as I want to say this is not my fault, I admit that I really just completely lacked self control. When Carla posted about her Rainbow Rose Quilt Along top, I spied some low volume fabric that I couldn't resist asking about. And then Carla not only told me what the fabric was... but she sent a link to...
