Recent Shopping

Have you heard of Moda's new precut - Frivols? They are 7" squares. A few months ago The Fat Quarter Shop had these available for pre-order and I signed up. I'll get one a month for the next year. The first one came this week. Here is what is inside.

The fabric for this month is the Hello Darling line. I assume there are 42 7" squares, but I didn't count. In addition there are two patterns. One is a full pattern (on the left in the photo above) and the other is just a block pattern. Lastly there is some ribbon that says "handmade" and also "made with love" (this section is not shown in the photo above). 

But for me, the tin all this goodness comes in is the real prize and the reason I signed up.

I could have done a better job of shutting the lid in the above photo. Oh well!

The lid even has a window. It measures 4.75" by 7.5" by 2.5" tall. I think these will be great tins for storing small projects in progress.

Also arriving this week, some ribbons to use as the spine of the needle books I've been making. Click here to see a recent one.

I bought a yard of each from Hawthorne Threads. Each book only needs 5" of ribbon so this will make quite a few needle books.

Again, the ribbons are fantastic! I love the Frivols, too. I hadn't heard of it. I might have to check it out. That tin is cute. So, do you get a different tin each month? I assume you do.
