Last weekend it was actually sunny here in the never ending winter province of Nova Scotia. The girls and I took advantage and took a road trip to Mahone Bay on the South Shore. There just happened to be a Fabric Flea Market on hosted by the Mahone Bay Quilters Guild. We got there late so I think I missed some good deals, but I did pick up some Crazy for Dots from RJR Fabrics
More deliciousness added to the stash is this awesome bundle of Rain Essential by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics. Have I told you how much I love Art Gallery Fabrics? Well, I do, they are so silky and lovely to work with. This bundle was actually a win from a giveaway at Pile O' Fabric. Thank you Alyssa!!!
If you are part of the Modern Quilt Guild you are likely participating in their most recent Michael Miller Fabric Challenge using Petal Pinwheels. We at the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild are, and I needed some fabric to add to the project (you can add other Michael Miller fabric), so off I went to Mad About Patchwork for a little shopping therapy. All for a good cause of course.

Not fabric related, I also had a couple of other items join the sewing studio. My mom just came back from the US and she brought me a couple of bobbin holders, and some batting! Batting is sooooo expensive in Canada so I usually bulk buy from the states when there are good sales. Some day I would like to buy a bolt, but storage may be an issue:
|on a side note, see how messy the thread is on those bobbins, clearly my machine is having an issue|
So, a very good time is had in the stash this week. Now to sew some of this stuff up! Must. Get. Working. On. My. Fabric. Challenge. Project.
I hope you get some time to sew this weekend!
