Text prints are my one weakness. Wait not true. Fabric is my one weakness. With an extra bit of weak for text.
So when I saw Alyce’s Japanese Bundle Club for January was a text one, well. I couldn’t resist. It’s a surprise bundle, all hand picked by Alyce.
Considering her fab taste in fabrics, I didn’t think I would be disappointed. And I certainly wasn’t!
I have already picked out some of these to be used in future blocks! Paper pieced of course.
Fussy cutting in paper piecing is my one weakness. Love finding the perfect fabric or scrap of text to use in a paper pieced block.
Sorry for the dark pictures – it’s rather overcast here. But I am not complaining. After there being a heatwave of late, I am enjoying the cooler weather and the rain! Perfect weather for sewing. Sewing being my one weakness.
Isn’t that a fabulous bundle of prints? I opted for the F8th bundle, but you can also get FQ bundles.
There is a different theme for each month. February’s theme is sewing! Might be handy for those of you joining in the “And Sew On” BoM!
You can find all the details for the Japanese Bundle Club here. Plus! Postage is included in the order price! I do love included postage. You might say it’s my one weakness.
Especially when you consider the US postal system is raising postage rates. For us international gals, it’s jumping from $17 to $24. Isn’t that horrid! Please, share in my outrage! So will be looking out for those fab shops that have discount shipping (like Christa Quilts) or ordering more from Alyce in Japan!
And for fellow Lark Rise lovers, here’s a weakness or two of Miss Lane’s.
Linking up with Sunday Stash. Fiona from Finding Fifth is hosting. You might say Lark Rise to Candleford is also her one weakness.
