Stimulating the economy

Even though I have been crazy busy these last few weeks, I still managed to find a minute now and then to shop.    Here are my latest finds.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Wool fat quarters.  It's very hard to find the bright colors but here are 4 I found.  They don't look too bright in the photo, but they are!Love them!

Then come the books;  I'm always on the lookout for books. These are my latest.

And then, from artfabriks...hand dyed, pre-fused, die cut shapes.   How cool is that!  So cool, in fact you are looking at $90's worth........

So I figured at $90 for that tiny little bit, maybe I should buy my own die cutter to use my own hand dyed fabrics.   So I ordered the Accu cut 'studio' and way too many dies......

I decided to go with the studio rather than the 'go' because the dies are so limited for the 'go'.  I also figured I'd put it to good use making kits for my classes.  So, that makes it a business expense.  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!

  1. Glad someone besides me is doing their part to stimulate the economy!

    I've been wanting one of those cutters---didn't know the dies were limited in the one you can tote around with you. Glad to know it as I was about to order one. Guess I'll wait to build up more money...maybe after my birthday usually DH and his parents give me some money then.

  2. Even if I wasn't so cheap and spent the money, I have no room anywhere to put such a machine.
    I am so jealous.

  3. Hi Deb! Found your blog through Quilter Blogs, and had to come and see these hand dyed, pre-fused, die cut shapes. Do you have a link where you bought them? I might use them once in a while, but not often enough to spring for a cutter...

    Thanks, I'm off to explore your blog some more!



  4. To.

    I think you just can't stand for me to have cooler toys than you do! You'll have to tell me which 3 books are must buys for me.


Thanks for visiting! I always enjoy your comments.
