New Stuff for my Stash! (just what I need . . . )

When I was at The City Quilter in Manhattan last weekend, I picked up some fabric that I had to have . . .

I want to color and play with this fabric that is printed exclusively for The City Quilter.   You can order this fabric from their website!

I also had to buy the “NYC Subway Map” fabric.



When I lived in Manhattan, TIMES SQUARE was my subway stop!  It seems like so long ago — and it was, I guess!  LOL

Cold War Memories

I was never a big fan of Rocky and Bullwinkle but I love, LOVE Natasha Fatale (of Boris and Natasha)!  So I had to have a half-yard of this (which I’ll never use, I’m sure of that!).

Remember this commercial for Energizer featuring Boris and Natasha?

I remember watching a New Year’s Rocky special when I was a kid — and Natasha’s quote has stuck in my noggin for all of these years!

“Happy New Year, everyone — but moose and squirrel!”

It still makes me laugh when I think about it.

Then I hit Walmart!

I got inspired when I saw these fabrics and bought them for a little creative mini-art-quilt experiment.

I also hit the SALE aisle….

So of course I bought …..

I need more beads like I need another hole in my head but they were on S-A-L-E!

        Here I am at Fort Bliss, TX, getting ready to deploy. My goal today (other than reading up on regs for my job)? Trying to find more can’t-live-without-it fabric on the internet. Do I send iy home? Do I send it to Kuwait? Decisions, decisions….

    You will have to share that white subway fabric with me. It will help alleviate any guilt.

    I love, love that city fabric! What to do with it? Just saw where you take a fat quarter, cut in half, back it with t shirt fabric – sew around, inside out – boom – Burp cloths for baby ( or daddy?)

    Love the subway fabric! My 6 year old son has a black t-shirt with that map printed on in…he calls it his “city boy” shirt. Looks like you found some great treasures!

    Burp clothes with fat quarters are great but I use either baby diaper or flannel for th backing either of these are more absorbant. I personalize mine with embroidery & baby’s name. Mark, love your fabric finds! I feel the pain of the $200 purchase, I’ve done several recently myself.

    Love your blog – you are helping me get back into the art of creating.Thanks for the inspiration.

    We are quilters – don’t we all have holes in our heads??

    I can’t believe you found those cool beads, on sale or not. We won’t even discuss the craft department in my local Wal-Mart- I don’t want to offend your virgin ears.

      Oh, please! My Walmart SUCKS. They got rid of their craft department. I found these in the heaps of their ‘get rid of it’ stuff. xoxom
