AQC wishlist

Quilting: From Little Things...



Sarah Fielke's new book










You Sew Girl   Nikki's new book



Cretacolor AquaStic Water Soluble Oil Pastels - 10 pc





I was really taken with the work that Kim Bradley does with Cretacolor pastels - just beautiful. The pastels, however, are very expensive!










I had set myself a budget but ended up spending very little as the miser in me tends to kick in and disallow frivolous or impulsive purchases. Some of the above may be attainable sometime. I did buy a little purse kit from Nikki's stall, a few more buttons to add to the collection I'm saving for my girl's treasure boxes and a little bit of fabric to make the purse. So now I have money left over to buy some nice batting for the Maisy quilt, which is coming along quite nicely thank you!

Happy and holy Palm Sunday to you all, I'm looking forward to a great Holy week.

I don't think I could have left without Sarah's and Nikki's books, you showed great restraint!

Do you have swag bucks? I collect swag bucks by using them as a search engine and then I use the points to purchase $5 gift cards from Amazon. You can let them collect in your Amazon account as long as you like. Last year we saved up about $120 in 5 months and used them for Christmas presents. If you want to know more, feel free to email me. It really helps with the book budget!
