Yes, The Fabric Gnome visited me…

So, at my house when socks and things go missing, we say that the Underpants Gnome took them.  This was my late husband Derrick’s version of comedy that stuck.   Gosh I miss him.  He was hilarious.  So, we don’t have the Sock Fairy stealing socks, but the Underpants Gnome. Let me tell you, he is hungry because I have an enormous bag of un-mated socks and underwear with holes (They couldn’t be because they are 10 years old).

So, when I felt slightly guilty about the Fabric package in the mail, I decided that I would blame the Fabric Gnome.  I like him way better than the underpants Gnome.  He left me this fabulous pile of batiks from Hancock’s of Paducah.

So, the folded pile is a sample pack.  There are 40 pieces at least 14×18 (most nearly fat quarters).  It was $19.99.  Holy Cow.  They are very lovely and luxurious.  There a few duplicates, but I won’t complain.  Such a steal.  I am having a difficult time not going and buying more, especially since they sent me a 15% off coupon after that order.  The other pieces are one yards that were $3.99.

Odd thing, I love batiks, but have only made a couple of small baby quilts.  I got these with the plan of making myself a quilt.  How weird is that?  I already have a jelly Roll and was looking for a few others.  This will be perfect.

Happy Sewing

Happy Quilting
