A Good Reason to Try

Opening one's email Inbox can be a dangerous thing.....

Electric Quilt sent me a nice little email today announcing a sale.  20% off Christmas in July Sale, exclusions apply.  Oh, boy!

Resistance was futile, especially since it's payday and I've been wanting to try EQ Printables Cotton Satin 283 thread count fabric sheets for a long time.  I've been wanting to try them in order to see if I can use them to print images and/or quotes on them for a Twilight quilt or if I want to use Spoonflower for the quotes instead.  I have used the 200 thread count sheets before, but they are what they are at 200 thread count.  I ordered the six sheet package to do my experiment.  While I was at it, I went ahead and ordered EQ's newer product, Quilter's Newsprint Sheets, with paper piecing projects in mind.  I was curious about them and since I was placing an order for the other, I went ahead and splurged.

I am not happy about $8.00 for shipping, though.  I don't have a lot of choice since neither of these products are available at any of my local quilt shops.  Oh, well!

The boys are headed out this weekend for camping with the Boy Scouts.  It's a girls' weekend.  I won't be home much as M got gifted Rockies tickets at Club Level for Saturday.  S wants to see Brave so we'll probably do that on Sunday.  I'm taking some time off next week so maybe I'll get something done then.
