Mail Call Monday - Projects Galore and More

Welcome to a LONG overdue post of Mail Call Monday!!  The back story is that I am a member of Ravelry.  It's an online community for fiber folks of all kinds.


Enter the adorable Chameleon Bag pictured above...

I don't usually BUY bags - I usually MAKE them!!  However, this one was SEW cute and it was for a good cause.  Anyone who knows me also knows that I am a sucker for a good cause!

Plus... DS1 used to love anything that resembled a lizard, so this will remind me of him.  Thank you to AlisaB on Ravelry, who was raising money for flintkids.org and...   "All income (not profits: 100% of income) from February and March of 2016 will be donated to the Flint Child Health & Development Fund via Flintkids.org".  (I have a music themed bag to remind me of DS2 - sadly, not made be AlisaB.)

Then came a Book Destash...

I am SUCH a sucker for books!!!  Quilting books in particular.  There were a number of books listed for extremely reasonable prices.  How could I resist???

Well, I believe that you KNOW the answer to THAT one...  I couldn't resist!




Thank you to RitaDenise on Ravelry for sharing your books with me!!

Yes.  I am participating in the (Ravelry) 2016 Austerity Challenge.  That doesn't mean that I can't buy books.  It ONLY means that I'm not supposed to buy FABRIC!  Well, at least, I'm not supposed to buy fabric unless it's my once quarterly shopping day, which is a new allowance for 2016.  :P

Until next time...
Quilt til U wilt!!!

  1. That bag is just too cute! I'm on Ravelry too, but mainly cruise it for knitting patterns. You got some great books-I have Hari Hargrave's and it is a terrific resource. I'll be checking out the other 3 at my library.
