Vacation Recovery & Cyber Monday Deals

Hi everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday and that if you did the Black Friday thang – you made it out safely!  I was watching the news Friday night and was blown away by all the violence – it didn’t exactly scream Christmas to me.

In other news, I was able to get my Fancy Flocks quilt basted – it really only took about 30 minutes once I finally laid everything out and just did it! That is the thing about basting – at least a small quilt, it really isn’t that painful, it is just the thought of having to do that stops me!

I am going to head to my local Janome Dealer today and purchase the Ditch Quilting Foot for Acufeed:

I don’t know about you, but I stink at sewing a straight line and this quilt really does call for straight lines. I am hoping it helps me a lot – anybody have experience using this foot? Does it help?  I hope so, if it works well with this quilt, I know it will get lots of use in future projects.

Note: Julie from The Intrepid Thread just gave me a great tip before I posted this and she suggested using painters tape for the lines – which I am definitely going to do for a different quilt that doesn’t have any line to follow!

The next 3 weeks are going to be a whirlwind of crazy for me! I have to get 2 quilts completed quilted. Get a pattern together using my favorite fabric line out there – Rendezvous for Julie from The Intrepid Thread. I would like to finish the table runner that I started with the Flora Jelly Roll a couple weeks ago, and I also want to make a couple of mug rugs for my mom and my MIL.  We shall see just how productive I can be – seeing as I definitely have the ability to waste hours at a time playing Bejeweled online (it is the bane of my existence and totally addicting!).

In the meantime – today is Cyber Monday and there are deals to be had!

I have already taken advantage of this amazing deal and you should too!  This doesn’t even take into account her awesome sale section – where there are 203 different items to be had!

Vicki and Jennifer from Sassy Packs have another amazing Cyber Monday Deal – 25% off fabric by the yard! Use the coupon code CYBERM at check out. Now that is a fabulous deal – I myself would probably invest in backing fabric – that is when I spend the most money on yardage.

The best part about Cyber Monday…you can get all your shopping done and never leave the couch – and oh yeah…you are safe from all the crazies out there that have helped rename Black Friday to Black & Blue Friday!

Happy Shopping!
