Wealth....and a Cupcake Award

(Logical pairing, right? Don't cupcakes = wealth?)

Worried about money? (Aren't we all???) Recently two ladies struck up a conversation with me on the subway about money and I found myself sharing a tool hubby and I use in our financial management that is immensely helpful. If I'd share it with strangers, why not you, my lovely readers? So, I'm working on a post to tell you all about it. Should be up by the end of the week.

Now about that wealth.....


I got my Spare Change Swap fabric some time ago and it is fabulous!!! A long overdue thanks to chickpeastudios for the phenomenal swap! I have enough projects on my plate that I won't be sewing anything with these for awhile, but check them out! Aren't they fun???


I think my all time favorite is the pea pod fabric. I gushed about it enough when I saw it both times on her blog, that our kind swap guru offered to fish out my package to make sure I received one of them. With over 150 packages to prepare!!! I thought that was an overly generous offer and reassured her whatever I got would be wonderful. (Looking at the other 23 squares in my pack it is TRUE!) However, I got one after all! Wahoo!!! Whether she double checked for me or the fabric fairies were on my side, I know not, but her extreme generosity in arranging this swap definitely earn her a cupcake award for sweetness. She made a lot of quilters very giddy this fall! Thank you chickpea!

Oh, your spare change squares are cute! I have to post mine. What a time chickpea must've had with all those squares!

What a lovely looking cup cake. Enjoy your new fabrics when you get around to piecing them together.

I saw that swap on her blog and wanted to do it, but just never got around to sending in my fabric... now seeing your array makes me extra super bummed that I didn't participate. Those are some great pieces!
