I did the random number generator thing on Friday morning and Annette is the lucky winner of the kit. I always felt like I was at a disadvantage if I was the first commentor on a giveaway but Annette’s win proves that fear baseless. She was the first to leave a comment and she now gets the kit. For the rest of you, look for another kit giveaway soon.

Today I was sorely tempted to order yet another block of the month program. Fortunately, that little voice in my head asked, “What? Are you nuts?” There is a U.S. shop that stocks a great variety of reproduction fabrics but is notorious for their high prices on block of the month programs. The “Stars and Sprigs” pattern by Kim McLean is so appealing in 19th century reproduction fabrics and the siren song of fabrics for six blocks/month was strong. At least until the ‘little voice’ slapped me around a bit and I saw the $18.95/month (for 18 months!!) price tag. The little voice also boldly pointed out that my stash contains plenty of such fabrics and if I wanted a block of the month I could make my own with fabric on-hand. So, that’s what I am going to do. I ordered the pattern today and am headed to the stash to start pulling some of the boldest repros I own.
