Have you not heard???

And a bit frustrating............but still FUN !

I got two sets of each of these samplers......I think that's enough to make 2 zig zag quilts at around 50 x 70

I've been deciding on my order of solids over at Connecting Threads.  I've wanted to build up my stash, and had to decide between pre-cuts and fat quarters.  I went with the 2 1/2 inch strips.  You know how expensive jelley-rolls are, at 25 to 30 dollars apiece..........well, I know that you usually get atleast 40 fabrics, but these solids from CT come with 24 strips for $3.30.........did you read that right........YES...........$3.30 ! ! ! !

I mean look at this page.......  a bundle of 24 fatquarters is only $11.88 !  

No, I don't work for the company;  I am just overwhelmed.  They went half-off on all of these samplers today, and WOW !

I had lots in my cart and couldn't make up my mind which ones I couldn't live without.  I was trying to keep it under $19.99, so that the shipping would stay at $3.89.  Well, items started disappearing from my cart while I was still mulling the whole thing over. 
This is the set that I missed.......Kelley, feel free to grab a couple of the strip sets and send them to me for Christmas.......the sale continues until tomorrow night at midnight because they had problems earlier.

Let me tell you that THAT stirred me up.  The crazy and aggravating thing is, once I paid for what I got, and went back to look again (why do I always do that)........the items that had disappeared from my cart were back for sale again.  Earlier they had been unavailable except to add to my wish list.......now you can put them in your cart again.  Sadly, I wish I had gotten them, but I won't pay the price of a jellyroll for another shipping charge, so I guess that's what it took to help me make a decision.

Anyway, their sale on these beat Fabric.com this time.   Fabric.com has been making their hourly offers all day via Facebook.  They're on their final offer right now..........25% off your entire purchase until midnight. (EDIT-EDIT :  mistake on that timing.....it was just until 5 p.m.) 

Connecting Threads Cyber Monday sale continues an extra 24 hours because of glitches earlier in the day, so GO FOR IT !

By the way, CLUCK. CLUCK. SEW is having an unannounced special for Cyber Monday, and it is good until noon tomorrow.  Her patterns are "buy one, get one free".  If interested, please comment on her latest post, and tell her you heard about it here.  She's a doll and so is the baby in her post !

Personally, I love this pattern of hers, and hope to be making it really soon.

Ha, I just noticed how very colorful and cheerful my blog is today !   Hooray for bright moments in cloudy seasons !  PRAISE THE LORD  !


  1. I get that magazine and drool over their solids too. And I agree, they have awesome prices!

    Great pics there Dolly!

  2. Oh.MY!!! I had no idea that Connecting Threads had all those samplers AND those great prices. I have a cart full now, but I have changed it up about 6 times since reading your post. I am TRYING to talk myself out of buying anything. But I was going to try their thread...
    I saw Cluck Cluck Sew's post today and bought the Lattice pattern as well as her new one. Already have them in my email. That was a nice deal.

    oh yeah...I placed a Fabric.com order last night for stuff I NEEDED not stuff I wanted. I got 25% off so that made me happy. That was another cart I played with and played with.

  3. We are MORE than even now. I turned you on to Fabric.Com and you alerted me to this amazing sale at Connecting Threads. I just spent wayyyyyyy too much time there, filling and emptying my cart, trying to get it under $20. Decided to go for Free Shipping at $50, thought better of that...OY!!! I finally ended up with $33 total, with shipping. I got the two sets you got in Fat Eights, as well as two others and some thread. I was in a fat eights mood tonight - I hope I don't regret that decision.
    Okay...Tuesday NO SHOPPING. MUST SEW! Do you hear me??? :D

  4. You little temptress! I just ordered a pretty pansies sampler and the cheep talk sampler,(I have a thing for birds and fell in love with all the cute little birdies), now if I only had time to play!!! Thanks for the heads up on this sale:)


Thanks for stopping by !
