I don’t have a lot to say – want to be sewing, working instead.

I did find one of these yesterday and had a coupon so I got it:

Wrights SideWinder Portable Bobbin Winder

It’s gotten mixed reviews online so I hope I like it. I’ve been wanting one for a while, actually, because I hate having to unthread my sewing machine just to wind a bobbin. That and I can’t help thinking that running it that fast, that long, just to fill bobbins will only wear out the motor that much faster.

What I wanted to do last night but didn’t get to was make a jumper for Mim. Just one of those simple over-the-shoulder types that you wear a shirt or onesie beneath. Here’s the fabric I have prewashed and ready to go:

Stash Fabric

Next in line are these fabrics, I’m thinking bags but we’ll see what I decide at the last minute:

Stash Fabric

Sigh. Back to work.

Things that make my heart go pitter-pat:

Moda Pampered Pooch Charms (by jeninmaine)

1930s Repro Fabric Charms (by jeninmaine)

Moda Pampered Pooch Fat Quarter Set (by jeninmaine)

Ooo, aah…

These are the latest things I’ve pulled from my stash and queued up for The Next Big Idea.

After I ordered these from an online retailer (who shall remain nameless) and they ran out of stock (boo) I sought out these 5″ x 5″ quilt charms from the Moda Pampered Pooch collection and finally found them on eBay – I just adore these prints and vintagey colors!

That same day I just happened to stumble across a sale at the quite amazing FatQuarterShop.com and scored a complete set of fat quarters in the same fabric, omg!

And last but not least, I dug out some coordinating fat quarters that I’ve had in my stash forever and ever, I think it’s time to actually do something with them!

Plans, plans, I have plans. I am scheming. Mwahahahaa!

Exciting, isn’t it? Well…it is to me :D
