Sunday Stash


pam kitty stacker

Okay, so I went a little crazy. A couple of weeks ago, when Pam Kitty Picnic was released, I decided that buying the fat quarter bundle wasn't economical because I might've gotten stuck with 2 or 3 prints that I didn't need, so why pay for those, right? So in a deranged state of mind--with a coupon in hand--I decided instead to buy half-yards of only the ones I had to have.

At first I tried to play it cool--and just added these to my "had to have" e-cart...

...I think these are the cutest text fabrics I've ever seen. I need at least 10 more yards of it.

But anyway, then I started thinking, "I never have enough green" and "this pink is perfect" and "really, who expects me to live without these polka dots?" and "what's life if I can't have these florals?". I was giving my husband paranoid sideways glances while I continued to add and add to my cart while he had his face glued to the television.

I got to the point where I had one eye closed so I couldn't see the side of the computer where the total was being calculated; but still I had to ask myself, "what if I wanted to make a patriotic quilt one day?"  It would be impossible without these...

Anyway, when it was all said and done, I had purchased 30 (yes, I said 30) half-yards of Pam Kitty Picnic (and I didn't know that number until I just counted them for this post)! I get a stomach-ache just thinking about it. So I'm going to tell my husband that this is my Christmas present and I don't want anything else, but I hope he doesn't take me seriously ;)

Also, if ANYONE is interested,  I bought a bunch of extra copies of some crafty UK magazines and am doing a little giveaway. I think it's going to win the world record for being the giveaway with the highest odds of winning because there's only 6 people that have entered, and one of them is my friend Joe who just entered to be nice.

So, if you're interested (and like great odds) click here. Or on the picture of the magazine.

  2. The part about your husband is soo funny to me. I thought immediately of mine. He sneaks in and takes a peek at my stash to see what I am up to. Hehehe! Lovely fabrics!

    1. Men are so silly. My husband doesn't mind spending a money on his electronics but then he gives me the evil eye when he sees me buying fabric. I think fabric is way more useful than high def:)

  3. ahaha the glances are what I do with my husband! I sneakily ordered some Christmas fabric last night while he was on his computer behind me, and I had to log into my online bank account to get my credit card number because I didn't want to arouse suspicion by getting up to find my wallet!

    I've been eyeing off those Recipe text prints but took them out of my cart the other day when I bought some things because I wasn't quite sure if I really needed them... seeing your photo made me realise that yes, I really do need them ;)

    1. That is so funny! We get our mail at a post office box and I sneak the fabric packages in the house when my husband is in the shower or in bed. :)

  9. LOL!, FUNNY! Gurl, you shop just like me. When I shop, I SHOP. Go big or go home, I always say. I usually wait until Mr. Sparkles has left the building that way I don't have to put up with his sideways glances at me (I'm sure he knows what I'm up to! haha) There are some great additions here, and I see why you couldn't just say no! Thanks for linking up and I expect to see lots more of you in 2014. Mwah!

  10. Wow you and I do the same thing! I did it just the other day again and again;) lol 4 purchases later I was satisfied and had myself a Merry little Christmas to me moment! We have to spoil ourselves once in awhile right!

  11. Seriously Cristina, I think we were separated at birth. You were just lucky enough to be a Texan and I get stuck up here in the northwest. Those text prints are my favoritest EVER and I seriously need a bolt of every single one of them. I'm getting quite a few yards of the white one to be the background on my PKMorning Dresden quilt that I started ages ago. It's just too pretty to not use!
