Recently I saw some scrap bags for sale at Hawthorne Threads. At the time they only had two sorts – a warm and a cool. Now they have added “fresh” to the range. For only $11 you get 2yds of fabric. Here’s what I got in my warm scrap bag.

And here’s the cool one.

Given that the postage to Australia is $13.95 for a flat rate envelope I decided to buy some other fabrics. These four were on sale.

And this was a Denyse Schmidt Hope Valley Fat Quarter Bundle in New Day. I have to say I was suprised at the colours when they arrived. They looked decidedly greener on the website picture – don’t you think?  I guess it must have been taken from a print brochure. Anyway they are lovely fabrics all the same and the service was great. I ordered them on the 19th January and received them on the 27th. (No affiliations by the way, just a happy customer.).

A total of 8 yards of fabric for less than $70 including postage. (The envelope did burst but good old Australia Post wrapped it in a plastic envelope and sealed it.) Now I have my eye on the “fresh scrap bag” but what shall I fill the envelope with? Well, I do like the Laura Gunn  Magnolia Lane fabrics.
