McTavishing Monday and Fabric Sale

5 Comments

First, I want to let my best peeps in on a secret sale.  I just put up lots of new fabrics in my Etsy store – link on the right side – all top quality cottons that would sell for $10-11 in the LQS, on sale at my store for $5 / yard in one yard cuts.  I am cleaning out stash, all are good quality fabrics with a soft hand, and none have been washed.  Thanks for taking a look.  I can fit three yards in a priority envelope, and 9 yards in a large box.  Shipping will be only what it costs me.  The system will figure it, and I will rebate any overage.  I now take all credit cards, gift cards, Paypal and money orders.  I have the floral jonquil and hyacinth prints you have seen in previous projects, along with a dozen new fabrics just added.  Here’s a sample.

I also have several sets of specialty threads including metallics.  So, order what you like, put in the comments that you follow my blog and I’ll send you a free gift in addition to your order.  Can’t beat that!

On to McTavishing!  Linking up again with Amy, I am interested to see how we all are doing.  I have been practicing on paper for most of the week.  Finally I got ready, loaded up a practice piece muslin with dark blue thread so I could see my mistakes easily.  Not too bad for a first effort, I think.

I drew an irregular shape, it seems to be easier to fill an irregular one than a square for me.

Well, except where I missed a spot!

Ah well, more practice!

How are you doing with your McTavishing?

Link up with Amy and lets see some pics!!
