Hi again. You may remember that I told you about my trip to Mexico. You may also remember that I have FACD (fabric acquistion compulsion disorder) also known as "I want more fabric in my stash." But I am sure none of you suffer from this. (ha!) So anywho, while I was in Mexico, I went to the Parisina store(s.) I actually shopped in three of them, but only bought fabric in one of them. The fabric is sold by the meter rather than a yard so you get a little extra. NICE, huh?
Knowing that I had limited luggage space for purchases, I only bought three meters. These three:
Now the other stuff: At the top you see my cutting mat (one of them) covered partially with wax paper. The wax paper is to protect it from the Mod Podge (not pictured) that I was using to follow a tutorial over at Tonya's Sewing Room. I don't have the magnets yet for the back, but I did get the fabric put on back of the gems.
I also used the Mod Podge to put some fabric collage on a round box lid that I had painted and am not happy with. (The box has been sitting for years unfinished!) So you see both fabric and painted surface there. Still more to do on the rest of the box and perhaps on the lid. I am undecided at this point.
Now about that Link:
My friend and local brilliant artist/quilter, Norma, runs a couple of blogs. One of them is all about winning stuff. It is called "Quilty Giveaways" You may remember that I love winning stuff. In fact, I just won TWO giveaways.
1. From Tonya's Sewing Room I won a $50 gift cert from CNS stores. So last night I bought a new piece of luggage to replace the piece that got mangled on my trip to Mexico. I spent a whole ninety four cents of my money on it . NICE!!!
2. From Mary at Quilt Hollow I won
