a little shopping and sewing

A little shopping...

 I succumbed and ordered a small selection of AMH Loominous 
from mad about patchwork in Canada
I think  I'm +ve they will blend nicely with lots of things! 

and the latest little bundle from Amitie stash club arrived this week
a pretty selection of 10" squares to add to my stash
Linking up here with molli for sunday stash 

and there's also been a little bit of sewing too...
Here's a few pics of my Bonnie Hunter's Leaders & Enders project
It'll take a while, but so easy and another great scrap buster idea!

I leave a pile of cut out scrappy tumbler shapes beside the sewing machine
all ready to chain piece together WHILE working on other projects
I'm sewing a light & dark tumbler together - 

- and eventually I'll end up with a pile of joined tumbler blocks.
And then it's just a case of repeat,
this time sewing the pairs together, you get the idea I'm sure!
p.s. sometimes I do make up more than one pair at a time 
he-he, I'm keen to get a few more finished to see how they all go together!
{For more explanations & more ideas also see here}

Happy sewing! 


  1. Lovely fabrics from the Amitie Stash Club.

    1. Hi Maureen, Yes, I enjoy getting these ‘pretties’ and it’s nice getting something you haven’t actually chosen yourself. Unfortunately like everything, the price is going up for the next lot! So I need to think about whether to continue or not! (I’m retired from nursing now!) Have a good week, Linda

  2. Hi Linda, just much does it cost to send fabric from Canada, as opposed to the USA? Loominous looks gorgeous, its on my wish list too.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. I love to hear your thoughts. Happy sewing!
