I was so excited when my package arrived from Create For Less.
It was packed to perfection. I’ve never seen a package so meticulously organized and carefully secured with air bubbles.
And the contents were enough to make any crafter’s heart skip a beat! Amazingly detailed quilting books for under $5 each, and patterns starting at .99 cents. Check out their clearance section people! Orders over $100 ship for free.
I spent more than a little while perusing the goods. And I guess I’m all out of excuses, I’ll have to finish that quilt now!
I ended up with everything I need to complete my first quilt:
505 Spray and Fix (easier than using safety pins to baste)
Warm and Natural Batting (full size – I bought 2!)
Laundry Basket quilt templates (for use later – they were cheap!)
2.5” Binding Buddy template
Coats and Clark machine quilting thread (must be purchased in increments of 3, but excellent pricing)
Several patterns and quilting books
I spent my morning soaking up sunshine and got a little head start on my spring cleaning. All of the bed linens, winter quilts, blankets, and rugs are washed and clean. Clothes that no longer fit the children are being sorted into piles for Goodwill and friends who can use them. For me, this is a good time of year to do a bit of purging. Time to simplify. It feels great.
If you would like to receive a copy of this oh-so-fun pattern, Animal Friends by Valori Wells Designs, just leave a comment on this post. I’ll choose a winner on Friday, January 29, 2009. International comments are welcome here. (I’m thinking of you, Ann!)
