Frugal Friday

Happy Friday!  I had a rough time yesterday working on my pinwheel quilt.  My top thread was breaking like crazy.  Talk about frustrating!  I think steam was coming out of my head at one point.  I even had my hubby take a look at Roscoe.  I’m sooo glad he’s a mechanic because I was almost in tears.  I don’t really handle malfunctions all that well.After much frustration and a near death experience for Roscoe, I think I figured it out.  I put in a smaller needle, a size 16.  I never use a size 16 but, so far so good.  The thread hasn’t broken since I did that.  We’ll see how today goes.  Fingers crossed!  Here’s a little look at the quilting.

I think I like it but I’m still a little jaded due to thread problems!
Without further ado, it’s time for some Frugal Friday fun.  Here’s how it works.  I’ll post pictures and details of what’s available.  If you see something you like just leave a comment.  I’ll need email addresses for invoicing purposes ~ so if you’re a no reply blogger you might miss out.  There’s only one available item for each picture so first person to comment gets it.  Each item is numbered so you can reference that in the comments.  That should eliminate any confusion on which item you would like.Shipping…this is a little tricky.  I will not ever charge you all more than actual shipping.  It’s hard for me to give actual costs here without knowing if you will purchase more than one tidbit.  Therefore here are some basic guidelines (US customers only):

  1. In order to ship First Class the order has to weigh less than 13 ounces {that’s about 2 yards of fabric}
  2. First Class Shipping is based on location but usually costs less than $3.50
  3. A Flat Rate Priority Envelope is $4.95 and I can fit up to 7 yards, mix & match, in there.
  4. If you should pay more than the actual shipping I will refund the difference.
  5. FREE Shipping on all patterns
If you have any questions you can email me anytime at  Please note…international shipping charges are much higher.  Please email me if you are outside the US and you would like a shipping quote.
Let’s take a look at today’s goodies…

(3) Color 2021 Snow White 1422 yds

Please, please leave your email address in the comment if there’s any chance you are a no-reply blogger.  Otherwise, I have no way of contacting you and I would hate for you all to think I’m not responding when, in fact, I can’t.
I’m off to have lunch with my hubby so I might not be super fast responding to comments.  Please bear with me if it takes a little extra time today.  I hope you all have a great weekend!
