This post is dedicated to all you enablers out there!  You know who you are.

Love the combination of fabrics
Someone posted a picture of camera straps on their Instagram page right at the time I decided I needed one of those just like that for my new camera!  A few clicks later and I had ordered a lovely new patchwork camera strap from SewFantastic.  

Cute llamas from Laurie Wisbrun
It's Cindy's fault that I HAD to purchase these adorable llamas and ski hat fabrics of Laurie Wisbrun.  She showed off her brilliant llama blocks at our Gruber's retreat, and I was instantly besotted.  I didn't know until I went online that the llamas come holiday themed as well!  Score!

Box of pre-cuts
This whole box from the Fat Quarter Shop I blame on my sister!  We are both making Great Granny Square quilts, but I couldn't decide which fabric I wanted to use, so I bought them all.  Slight exaggeration, but only just ;-)

Monthly fabric club
Pink Chalk Studio continually tempts me with their attractively clever newsletters and blog.  When I visited their shop in person, orders were being filled for their monthly charming solids club, so I had to play along.

Washi Tape-Masking Tape-3 roll set blue stripes

Pink Suede Shoe shows cute projects made with Washi tape (which I had not even heard of until recently) on her Instagram page, and my research indicates she orders from SugarBsupplies.  Wouldn't these be cute for dressing up packages?  If I had these, maybe I would be more likely to send snail mail.

Who am I kidding?  I don't need to be enabled when it comes to purchasing fabric.  I can do that all by myself!


  1. You've been having entirely too much fun. Love all your new goodies.

  2. I'm afraid you might be instigating some shopping for me with all these wonderful ideas, projects and supplies. I love every single thing you bought!

  3. I ordered the llama fabric, too. I totally blame Cindy for that one. I sure love what you bought. You are doing very well!

  4. Aren't enablers great ;-) I am loving the llama fabric!! Thinking I need to do some online shopping myself ;-)

  5. Okay, I give up! I am on my way to sign up for the quilting classes that begin in October. You and Michelle are to be thanked for encouraging me to take up quilting.
