Sunday Stash #110 – I’m Sorry, and Special Travel Announcement
Oh, heaven’s to Betsi! Dear Glitterati, you know I’m not the type to sit around and apologise or make excuses, but I’m afraid I have to give you a big fat “I’m sorry!” I have so many things happening around me that I’m struggling to find the time to connect with you here through my blog. I thought I’d have more time this week to remedy this, but as you’ll see from the special travel announcement at the end of this post, that ain’t gonna happen!
When I started the #SewingForSydney campaign, I was expecting to make two quilts, and that has easily transformed into eleven (maybe twelve). That means I’ve squared up over 2,100 blocks you’ve sent, coordinated nearly a hundred volunteers to make the quilts, and budgeted their creation with more than the $1,100.00 you’ve donated. If I’m drinking my truth tea with a long swirly straw, it’s a helluva lot more work than I ever imagined!
So please forgive me that I’m not here as much as I want to be. Trust that I have so much to share with you though; (magazines, finished quilts, new projects, more fabric, patterns, quilt bees, giveaways, bundles … it’s all still happening behind the scenes!) it’s just getting the time to give them the dedicated attention they deserve. So please be patient with me while the #SewingForSydney journey continues, and I’ll squeeze in as much in between the madness that I can.
So that leads me to this week’s Sunday Stash. Seriously, I’ve been holding all these since last year’s Black Friday sale at Intrepid Thread, and really, I’ve just got to let it go. It’s time for you to see them all; time for me to lay them all out before you! I was going to kind of tease some of them out so I didn’t look like a total fabric whore, but well …
… I’ve been called away on a work trip to Cupertino, California, leaving this Monday for a week! Well, you know what that means? I will definitely be heading to Intrepid Thread for some fabric R&R! Not to make a big giant deal about it, but if you’re in the area next Friday, January 30, I better see you there! I’ll only be signing autographs from 11:28 – 11:57, but it will be the best twenty-nine minutes of your life. Seriously, I’ll be hanging out with the Intrepid Thread team all day on Friday until about 3pm, and I’d love to meet you, and help you buy some fabric. Come on, you know you want to shop with me, because I want to shop with YOU!
