I haven’t done a stash report in a while so I thought I would join Molli’s party and show my recent acquisitions. Do you have friends that call or email you about fantastic deals?
Well I do and that is how I ended up with this bundle of Sumatra Malam Batiks Fat Quarter Bundle by Jinny Beyer for RJR Fabric. They are beautiful Spring colors, thanks Vicki!!
Earlier this week we had lunch with Bob’s mom and family in Clinton at Rastrelli’s which is his favorite pizza. I really, really like to eat there and it isn’t because I like the pizza. 5 minutes away, just a hop across the Mississippi river is Susan’s Calico Creations in Fulton, IL.
I bought 3 yards of each of these and my plan is to make 2 large totes. I like the inside to be a light colors fabric so I can find things. They were on sale for only $4 a yard….how could I resist! If you are close you should really check out the sale.
Another thing I that I seem to buy every time I come here is their little scrap bags. I forgot to show all the bags I bought last time I was here. Here is my orange scrap bag.
I also bought a bag of greens which are always great for leaves.
Here is what the bag really looks like – it is just a quart size ziplock bag which is stuffed. You really can’t see each and every piece and there just might be that one special piece…….at least that is what I tell myself as I am buying them. Fortunately their scrap basket was pretty bare this time and saved me some money.
Of course we can’t forget my Island Batik goodie box which was full of beautiful batiks! You are getting a sneak peek at fabrics that will be at Market in May! I am so happy to be a Island Batik Ambassador!

Since it is Sunday I have to share a photo of the Mississippi river in front of our house. Builder Bob was the one to see this and luckily I was able to get a picture for you. The red buoy closest to you is actually a runaway. We live in Iowa…….and have black buoys marking our channel. This happens quite often in the spring when the ice thaws.
Here is a better view and you can see there are 2 Illinois buoys marking the channel. We always think it is funny to see this – it doesn’t take much to entertain us. Can you see that black speck on the ice – that is a eagle. Enjoy your Sunday!
