Big Squishy Parcels!

I love it when big squishy parcels arrive in my letterbox! ūüôā ¬†I ordered some fabrics (all on special offer) from Hancock’s of Paducah about three weeks ago and have been waiting (and waiting and waiting!) for them to arrive – and today they did! ¬†(Funny how most of my Hancock’s parcels seem to arrive on a Saturday, just in time for the¬†weekend – I’m sure it’s entirely coincidental, but then again, maybe the Fabric Gods have come to an arrangement¬†with NZ Post¬†…? ūüôā )

Would you like to see¬†what was in today’s parcel? ¬†Thought you would … ūüėČ

Firstly, some lovely batik strips and 5″ squares from Tonga Treats¬†(‘cos as you all know, you can never have enough batiks …)

And then, some really cute Funny Farm fabric from Timeless Treasures:

Followed closely by some beautiful Tie Dye Butterflies (also from Timeless Treasures):

And lastly some fun Pointillist Bargellos from Dear Stella Designs, and some Fabulous Navy Stained Glass from Maude Asbury:

And …¬†(what the heck, I’m in a¬†confessing mood, so why not spill all the beans), here’s¬†some other¬†lovely stuff I picked up in a Spotlight half-price sale about a month ago:

Yup, more batik fabric – there was only about 1.3m left of this, so obviously I’m not alone in¬†my love of the stuff, LOL!


A selection of blenders/mixers, whatever you want to call them – the brown fabric in the third photo was an especially good bargain – already marked down to $4/metre, and the half-price sale further reduced it to $2/metre – so I got 5 metres of that ūüôā

And finally, some other stuff which either (a) was going at a good price, or (b) I just couldn’t resist …

So, I can see much stroking and petting of fabric ahead, as I admire them and put them away and take them out again, just for another quick look – you know how it goes, I’m sure … ūüėČ

In my next post I’ll show¬†you what else I’ve been up to apart from much buying of fabric – it’s been another productive month in my quilting world!
