Weekend Review - Fabric, Yarn & Fun

There have been many things going on here, let me tell you. Mostly ideas being gathered and then scattered, but it all leads to something in the end, right??

Let's start with my first Etsy purchase, vintage sheet fat quarters!!!!

Midwest Vintage Co. has a great collection of vintage fabrics and her latest shop announcement is that she is selling her stash, so get them while you can!!
I picked the floral fat quarter bundle and a random fat quarter bundle.

Love them all!! They have inspired me to keep an eye out for vintage sheets on my estate sale adventures!

If you were following on Facebook, you know I set the pattern increase aside for the Pineapple Market Bag to work on what I call, 'Nana's Hug'. I have finally finished all 55 squares and 11 triangles!!

Please excuse the horrible picture. Getting antique white on white is quite tricky!

Moving on to weaving in those pesky ends, sewing the piece together and then adding an edging.

You can find the original pattern for this piece here!

Finally, I took advantage of the Independence Day sale at Jo-Ann's and snagged myself some fabric and way more yarn than I planned; only because it was on amazing clearance. 
(Oh, clearance.....why you always get me in so much trouble? Hmmm?)


Let's not forget some holiday fun!

Hope everyone had a creative and festive weekend!!!
