I’ve never been a mall shopper on Black Friday – the thought of the lines and crowds horrifies me. But I did take advantage of the shopping-from-the-couch opportunities to do some fiber related shopping.
This all came in the mail over the last couple days:
The quilt kit is a Christmukkah present for someone else, but the rest is for me. Kaffe Fassett shot cottons! And I already totally love using both the ruler gripper and the little Japanese thread snips.
Both of those got a test drive this weekend as I did a small sewing project:
Quilt as you go, two at a time placemats. I’ve lots and lots of scrap strips, so the four I made yesterday are just the start, and making two at a time really sped things up.
I also guided a a bit of a family assembly line in the kitchen as the second project of the day:
Four pans of lasagne for the freezer.
We were all about the mass production yesterday!
Dec. 7 – Updated to add that I forgot all about this Black Friday purchase until it came in the mail last night! 90″ x 20 yards of Pellon Nature’s Touch batting. I haven’t used this kind before – I’ve been using Warm & Natural lately, but that roll was getting low, and this one was on a super sale. It feels good to the touch. I’ll keep you posted about what it is like to work with.
