Its not my fault…

that it was on sale.

I’ve already cut up a good share of this fabric and sewed it into quilt tops while the boys slept 3 whole hours yesterday at the same time (enter Hallelujah chorus here)!

These were a sweet surprise in my mailbox from my friend Natalia of Piece N Quilt.  Check out her blog for some AMAZING free tutorials.  Seriously Natalia….amazing!

Last but not least by special request from my Mom (hi Mom!) a picture of my little hunks:

No it was NOT your fault! I can see why you had to buy them. I am just loving the combination of pinks and greens at the moment. It reminds me of spring.

Lovely pictures!

fun stuff!

And oh my hallelujah that those little cuties slept at the same time!!!

Megan said...

I love Natalia's tutorials, too! As soon as she posts a new one, my first thought is, "I MUST MAKE THAT NOW." Glad the kiddos cooperated with your sewing schedule!

Amanda Joy said...

Being on a craft ban (so that we can go to Disneyland) I hate it when I see the awesome sales... and can't buy anything. After October all bets are off:)

Leslie said...

such gorgeous boys! i love that beautiful pile of fabric

Claire said...

NO, it's not your fault...when NICE, PRETTY, fabric is sale on sale it's hard to turn down......matter of fact I think I did some real damage to the bank account the other day....You'll have to come by and see what I mean, I'll be posting the damage sometime after dinner (still need to wait for the UPS delivery...the tracking # said the package weighs 29 pounds...yikes!)

THose boys are just adorable! And, NO, it was not your fault. You couldn't help that there was a great sale or such pretty fabric. You have no control over that situation!

Marcia said...

Thanks for the link. Handsome boys! :)

Little hunks for sure! their eyes are amazing (I always look at eyes first).

And yes, you MUST buy it if it is on sale!

Natalia from Piece N Quilt said...

You are AWESOME!

Caroline ~ TrilliumDesign said...

completely understandable! ;)

Vicki said...

Good on you for getting those gorgeous fabrics ...I wouldnt be able to resist them either...just gorgeous :) I love your little hunks too..sooooooo cute!! What cuddly little fellas they are and it was good they both slept at the same time so you could get some sewing done. I look forward to seeing what you did make :)

It wasn't. It's never our faults when we buy the fabrics. ESPECIALLY WHEN THERES A SALE. Or if it's on a day that ends with the letter 'y'.

Jennifer said...

omg they ARE hunky! what cute little boys. :)

kersten said...

LOVE the fabric!!! Can't wait to see what you are making with them.

Jeni said...

Who could resist! You picked up some great prints! :)

Look forward to seeing those quilt tops! Your boys are darling!

PioneerValleyGirl said...

Nope, not your fault at all! (we won't mention how much fabric I've bought in the last couple of weeks, including a couple from you pile)

An Art Nest said...

nice finds and sweet boys!

amandajean said...

such beautiful sale fabrics! your boys are oh-so-handsome. hurray for naptime! :)

euphoria said...

your boys are SO cute! Look at them- ADORABLE!

Brenda said...

I gotta tell you if you could see my fabric CLOSET and two other complete stands....you would have me committed! I still look and buy fabric. I think it becomes a tad of an obsession.
Be PROUD of your stash!!!
Cheers,
Brenda

OMG, those boys! Adorable!

Sandy said...

Great fabrics and congrats on hrs. of sewing alone!! Your boys are so, so sweet! Adorable!

Magnolia Designs said...

Oh my goodness...those little men are the CUTEST!!!! Seriously, I'm kinda partial to miney, but really, they are crazy cute! I am so envious of the little baby "squeeze factor" that your little one still has...my baby will be ONE next month and I watch it disappear daily...boo hoo! And, let's be honest, it is NEVER our fault when SOMEONE ELSE has a good sale on fabric...it just wouldn't be right to pay more than you have to for cute fabric, now would it?

sally said...

Good for you. It's hard to get things done with more then one kid. They seem to be much more demanding then I imagined.

O My Word!?! said...

Where was the sale??? I would LOVE to be a victim of a sale!!!!

Jantine said...

Love those boys! They are cute indeed. I bet even cuter when they sleep ;-)
And several quilt tops in one nap time, I just could not believe my eyes, or did I read wrong?

Mimi said...

cutest boys I've seen. And yes, you had to buy it. I think there's a law or something; if fabric is on sale you have to bring it home. its sounds reasonable to me.

Rinachiyya said...

Gorgeous fabrics and what a handsome boys you have. They are both adorable.

natalie. beyond the reef said...

I have purchased that bottom fabric TWICE now...it's gettin' scary when the blogs you follow feature the fabric you purchase...cuteness, those boys, cuteness....
