Accountability & a Tula Pink Finish

First, I want to share my little curvy clutch that I made for the Tula Pink Sew Along at Sew Sweetness.

I feel like a bit of a cheat since this is a pattern that I have used many times before but since I only had small pieces of one of her prints I didn't have a lot of choices. It is now available in my Etsy shop (which now that I look at it, is in serious need of some new items!).

I managed to finish up the two remaining blocks in the second set of the Super Penguin QAL
So happy with the fabric I chose for the building.  It was a little piece I had left over from my Cheep Talk Diaper Bag.

I love the way the individual blocks are turning out but beginning to worry about how the quilt as a whole will look in the end.  It may be hideous :) !
I am planning on doing my own version of a Friday night sew in.  My mother in law was more than thrilled to watch Squeak this afternoon and my husband has the night off and will hopefully be willing to keep an eye on him so that I can (cross your fingers) get caught up!
On the the accountability part of my post---I have a serious problem...Compulsive Fabric Buying.  I WILL NOT buy any more fabric (unless it is necessary to complete a project already in the works or specially requested by a customer) through the end of the year.  My hope is that by putting this in black and white I may actually feel obligated to stick with it.  I do have some fabric that I have ordered and en route so please don't think I've cheated when I post those pics :) but as of today there will be no more!


  1. Those blocks are awesome!! I particularly love the chef. Your clutch is lovely too. Oh and good luck with not buying more fabric. I think I have made that same vow numerous times with no luck ;)

    1. Thanks, I cannot wait to see how this quilt is going to look. I lasted all of about 12 hours on my fabric buying ban :(
