Sunday Stash #86 – Does This Match My Outfit?

Two packages arrived at my office this past week (well, actually a few more than that, but we’ll talk about those next Sunday.) The first was from my dear quilting-ninja-friend, Mishi Kichi. When I opened the package, I thought she had sent me a hat–albeit a slightly too small one! As I was resting it on my head, slightly askew (so chic!), I found a note in the package that read:

Molli – This is a thread catcher. But it’s twice the size it should be; I figure if Molli is going to have a thread catcher it should be the biggest!! But you don’t have to use it as that (I don’t.) The sparkly button in the bottom is the special touch. xoxo – MK

Oh. Thread catcher, right. I quickly swiped it from my head, hoping no one else in my office had witnessed my faux pas. Mishi had also sent the left over fabric, which is gloriously over-saturated, and reminds me of that acid trip I took in 1972. It was exactly like that. You can see I’ve already put this super-sized thread catcher to good use by filling it with my Kate Spain HST trimmings!
Oddly enough, the second package I opened was the Molli Sparkles Blogger’s Bundle from Fluffy Sheep Quilting that I curated. Apparently, my mail has now decided to start colour-coordinating itself for me. How amazing would that thread catcher fabric look mixed into my Blogger’s Bundle? And maybe another little pop of purple too? Mmm… getting excited thinking about this one!
There’s only two of my Molli Sparkles Blogger’s Bundles left from Fluffy Sheep Quilting! Two of you European folk should go buy them and then you can all call me a sell-out. WooH — …. Oh, wait. Um, maybe don’t call me that, but still go buy my bundle! 😉 Happy stashing!

    Hi Molli, I'm sure you looked very fetching with your threadcatcher hat! I just posted on Sunday Stash and wanted to say hello and thank you for hosting it – it's a fun one to join in with and it seems to be motivating my mum to give me loads of nice stuff. I'm having a lot of fun reading back through your site too.

    I am very happy to say that I scored the last Molli Sparkles bundle from Fluffy Sheep and it arrived today, I added an extra 1/2 yard of black fabric with a white circular print. Now to figure out what to make.
