Sunday Stash #158 – Secret Santa
I’m interrupting what has recently become my Japanese fabric acquisition programming with something entirely different this week. As part of the work Christmas party, we celebrated with a Secret Santa gift exchange. If anyone knows me at all, I’d say I’m pretty easy to buy for. Diamonds, vintage Dom Perignon, a real-life unicorn, all easily attainable presents sitting well under the $15 spend limit. Oh, and then there’s fabric! Some might call it the easy way out, but I’ll gladly take it!
This is an eight piece fat quarter gift pack that I received from my Secret Santa. Not too bad, I will say! Some of the fabrics actually sparkle, which will be fun for some paper piecing magic. That chevron would be great as the lining for a cushion cover to keep it really classy. And who doesn’t love a polka dot, no matter what? So versatile! However, when you’re buying these types of bundles from a chain craft store, you have to expect a few goodies, as well as a few lumps of coal.
Y’all know I’m not a novelty print type of gal, so wolves, owls and Thomas & Friends choo-choo trains, never gonna happen! I’m sure I’ll put these in a future scrap bag giveaway, or use them for free motion quilting practice. Needless to say, they’ll still serve a purpose, and for that I say a gracious “thank you” to my Secret Santa!
