We heard from Melissa of Craftsy this morning. Drum roll please!  Congratulations to the following three lucky winners:

The winner of the fantabulous grand prize, all this yummy loot:  bmichelbr8489760

What's that? You'd like to get your hands on some of those rich colours from Boundless? Click the photo or click here.  They're on for 20% off right now.

Again, thank you to those of you who read the reviews, who popped over to Craftsy and took advantage of the half-price classes available, and most of all thank you to our fabulous group of 10 bloggers who agreed to write review posts for the first hop that Julie and I hosted.  I've included a link to their home page, so you can see what they're up to since the hop.

It was a great time, and I know I myself learned a few new things!  If you missed anything or everything, but want to read some great reviews of classes, fabrics and patterns, click the heart on my sidebar and you will be taken to the schedule where you can visit each blog.  Personal endorsement of a product speaks volumes, right?

Now, speaking of Boundless solids, and fabulous fabrics, I spied this delicious collection, Home Sweet Home, on the weekend (and no! I actually did not buy it):

I thought, what is it about this fabric that really grabs me?  Realizing it might be the colour range, I decided to plug in the picture to Palette Builder 2.1

These are the matching Moda Bella Solids.  Wow, who'd've thunk it, right? Don't think I'd have put those together if I'd been starting from scratch.  But I do like them!  There is a nice range from very light to fairly dark.

Here are the Robert Kaufman Kona matches:

Just another fun thing to play with.  Because, you know, you're probably like me, with tons of free time to play on the computer.  And tons of money to go right on out and buy a chunk of each of these colours, right?

Speaking of money...with working part-time now, I like to save wherever I can, and I'm willing to wait for a sale.  There is going to be a good 'un at Craftsy this coming weekend: Winter Clearance.  There will be an extra 20% off clearance.  That just gives me a shiver of excitement typing that!  Might be a good time now to peruse their wares, calculate the savings, make a list of potential scores (you know how I love my lists)...

and ignore your Year of the Stash manifesto, ha ha!

  1. I love palette builder. You do realize you are guilty of being an enabler, don't you? :D

  2. I love those colours together too!


I wholeheartedly appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment, as they make my day!

You can get around that by writing out your email within your comment so that I can answer you.
