The State of Things.

floorshow
So, we are mostly moved in. Or, our stuff is here, and mostly out of boxes, and thats enough for us at this point. I have come to the conclusion that it is, in fact, possible to have too much fabric. So I am firing up the cleaning engines, and I've decided to make a game out of it. "Who wants a usps flat rate box o' goodness?" is the name of the game, and to enter, all you have to do is... uhm...
Wow. I hadn't thought that far ahead. Leave a comment! Yes, original, and I will choose someone at random (if, in fact, there is anyone to choose from) to receive a big box o' random goodness, and I promise, it will have at least a 60/40 goodness/crap ratio. I'm kidding, there really is no crap, I threw it all away before the move. Also, I'll probably put in something handmade. Why not? So, we'll do this for a week, if you leave a comment before next Tuesday, you're entered, and if you leave two, you're entered twice, but I know that you just want the fabric, because my blabbering on is, really, not that interesting. I know, I've been listening to it for a while.goodmessIn other somewhat dull news, I finished this little clutch, but it almost killed me. I don't know why, I just managed to do everything improperly- like, really, how many times do I have to forget to leave the zipper open when I'm sewing the pouch together from the inside out? Insane. clutchyAlso, for the Katie's "use what you have" challenge, I made this little pouchy. This little guy I liked. Still forgot to leave the zipper open, but, mneh. It'll make it's way to etsy when I have the time to post it.clutchy5All for now. I'll be packing up that box, now...

I love the killer patchwork bag! I know what you mean about too much fabric, I am scared of how much I will find when we move!

i love your clutch! so cute! and your pincushion too!

i got the thrift tables at the lee's summit goodwill.

obviously, i need to back-read your site to see how well you know the city. across the way from the goodwill is also a salvation army, and in the same complex is quilter's haven. they don't get the ubber-awesome fabrics, but if you're into flannel, they have an entire room of the stuff.
