deals and squeals wednesday

this past week seems to have been a busy one. i finally finished this quilt from last week which i'll post about on friday. so glad i snagged some pictures yesterday because the forecast is nothing but rain today! still working on the grocery bags from here . . why oh why it takes me so long to finish the "easy" projects i'll never understand! those babies should have been finished, wrapped, and delivered weeks ago! it's like i have to have my hands into every project that nothing ever gets finished - just ask my stack of quilt tops :)

well onto the deals and squeals for this week. i did a little shopping . . are we surprised?! before i show the goods i must first say that i love bloglovin!! it lets me follow my favorite blogs by delivering updates to my inbox every night so i just check it once before bed and i'm good. it has really cut down my screen time and allowed me to spend more time sewing.

so . .  the other night i was reading my daily updates and came across a fabric sale over at little lady patchwork (and it looks like it's still going on.) i picked up these charming little packs of pb&j. ever since this line has come out i have been dying to get my hands on it! so excited when they showed up in the mail!

 i also headed over to joann fabric where they were having some super sale and picked up these fun prints (it keeps switching the direction of the photo when i upload it) . .oh well you get the idea. i have this thing for floral prints, i don't know what it is but i'm always picking up the flowery stuff. i do LOVE that bold orange print though . . and i couldn't just leave the birds hangin. (ha!)

these next prints came from contemporary cloth . . they have such cute fun prints . . but i found these in their clearance section (big surprise) for $4.40/yd . . .totally thrilled and hopefully my 4yr old will be too when she sees what mommy is going to make her!

and now for a little work in progress . .

started this little baby quilt years ago when i was first learning to quilt. sadly once it was pieced i wasn't in love (anyone else go through that) so instead of just finishing it i found a new project and forgot about this one!
it's time to dust her off and get some things finished around here!


  1. Love the PB&J, my fat 1/8th bundle just arrived yesterday from The Knotted Thread (she has amazing prices on it), and I couldn't wait so I made the first two blocks of the Farmer's Wife. I love the gray and yellow fabric you got from Joanns.
    I have one of those quilts... In fact I included it in my 2nd Quarter Finish Along (we shall see if I get to it :) Best of luck!

  2. I have a bunch of pieced tops that i'm no longer in love with! It's so hard to get back to them and finish when you're just not feeling it anymore :)
    Loving those grey prints from Joann. I wish we had Joann's in Canada... heading over to their website to see if i can find those two prints :)
