I know, it’s ironic, I belong to a Yahoo e-mail group called Stashbusters, but yet I’m attempting to co-own an online fabric shop, which requires me to purchase fabric. Actually though, it has reduced the amount of fabric I’ve been able to purchase for my personal use, mostly. So, on this group of over 5000 fellow stashbusters, they have certain days when they post somethig to motivate us to get out there and do something. Sunday is Cut It Up Day. I am really glad I don’t have to cut everything with scissors like the girl in the picture above. I get to use my rotary cutter which is really the best invention since the remote control! I’m planning to cut into the many, many kits I’ve accumulated over the last, ahem, week, and also those from the Houston International Quilt Show I attended two years ago. Yes, I went shop hopping with Regina, my co-conspirator–I mean business partner– for Crafty Girls Workshop. We were doing market research and along the way, I couldn’t resist grabbing a few kits. Now I want to get them cut and ready to make into quilts. Since most of what I bought was for little boy quilts, I might end up making them and trying to sell them. Who knows, I don’t have any kids, and I only have one male dog. I don’t know what I would do with so many little boy quilts. I just fell in love with the fabric. (Don’t tell the Stashbusters though.) Oh, isn’t that picture above just adorable? I remembered I have this cool book of royalty free clipart that is great for decoupage, scrapbooking and apparently adding to blog posts so as not to bore people with just my text. OK, so I’d love to know if YOU are planning to do any cutting in preparation for sewing any time this week, please let me know by adding a comment on this post. And if you absolutely hate cutting, stop by Crafty Girls Workshop and check out the assortment of precut fabrics we have. I also posted about a really cute tutorial for a children’s activity tote that Moda Bake Shop posted yesterday. It turns out we have ALL the stuff to make those totes and I’ve added it as a KIT to our shop! I hope to hear from you soon.
Happy Stitches to You,
P.S. Sorry for the lack of posting activity. Please stop by my blog for Crafty Girls Workshop where I post at least once a week. Evetually I’m going to figure out how to combine these two blogs, but at the moment I need to go and get cutting on my fabrics!
