There were some gorgeous distractions shown last month, as per usual. Oh if I could only make all the quilts in reality that I make in my mind! Never mind, I'd need a bigger house ha!
As usual, it's too hard to pick, so please go check them all out here. I do want to highlight two in the orange family:

Now Anja did a true DrEAMi! Everything went by the wayside for her to make this:

Wait, sorry, guess I'll finish typing the post and schedule it for tomorrow! So... I've read more than a couple of blogs where quilters have been chasing... dun, dun, dun!

Let's see what you've chased or you've been grabbed by this past month! Link up below.
A couple more squirrels:
Please note that all Craftsy classes are on sale this weekend! (affiliate links in this paragraph) I hope you've seen and checked out that Craftsy Unlimited is now bluprint. They have a free 7-day trial on this weekend with your choice of 33% off your first 3 months or $20 off the annual subscription.
I still plan to write a review post about this Netflix-type new style of Craftsy classes, but I will say that I love the content, have watched the entire season of True Up which follows Angela Walters around (I really don't think that girl sleeps), and I'm excited and, like a magpie distracted by shiny objects, don't know where to go next, well, finish the Angela stuff for sure, and finish the Elizabeth Hartman class I skimmed in one of the free watch classes weekends a while back. Anyhow, do beware that the fabulous deals where you get a kit and $25 gift card etc, only apply to Americans. Not even to people like me who have a US address, nope. Also know that you get to keep the classes you've bought prior to the whole launch of this, and really it is a decent deal, just over CA$10/month (I did the year deal).
I did take advantage of the up to 70% off that Connecting Threads (affiliate link) had last weekend (got my pale blue Essential thread, yay); hope you were able to score some nice fabrics too. They still have a few sales on currently.
Finally, Sew Sisters Quilt Shop (no affiliation) has a free shipping sale on all Canadian orders (ya!) this weekend! They have the new Angela rulers....
