what a crazy day

I was working today and that was the only shop I entered, it was all very sensible because our sale isn't until January. Today is that day of amazing discounts and sales in lots of shops but it seems people go a little bonkers... apparently in Manchester a television fell on a lady's head and people have actually been hitting each other, or so I heard on the news. Obviously that is extreme behaviour but I do like a saving too, so online shopping is my way to avoid that craziness. I may have partaken in a few purchases today ;) 

If you've been shopping today, online or in real life, I would love to hear what you bought... yeah, I'm nosy like that!

Here are some fabulous deals from my sponsors...

The Fat Quarter Shop have 25% off and the discount is automatic, hurry it ends Saturday! They have such a huge range so now is the time to stock up on the things you need and the things you want.

Fluffy Sheep Quilting have 20% off your entire order from Fri 28 Nov through Mon 1 Dec, use the code BLACK at checkout. Check out the gorgeous Karen Lewis Textiles, unique to Fluffy Sheep Quilting:

Minerva Crafts have 80% off a range of haberdashery and crafting goodies; including yarn, buttons, bias tape, cutting mats and much more. This is a 'while stocks last' rather than a black Friday promotion but there are so many bargains I thought I would point it out and they also have sale fabrics too!

And right now there's a brilliant 30% off at Pink Castle Fabrics using the code BLACKFRIDAY30, valid through Monday. I love the Japanese fabrics they stock and couldn't resist some Lecien and Yuwa!

So did you bag yourself any fabric?


  1. Jersey knit for $2.50 at Girl Charlee, spent more on postage than I did on 8yards of fabric! Thanks for the codes 😀

  2. I stayed out of the madness both brick and mortar and online! I had the opportunity to sew with my daughter today and that's just what I did! It was a perfect day! I am so glad you didn't have a television or bolt of fabric fall on your head! It's rough out there!!! :)

  3. I said I wasn't going to go shopping, but my kids managed to drag me out to get their annual peacock ornaments for our Christmas tree. It wasn't too bad, and they were 20% off, score!!! And I ordered some patterns and a bolt of Kona silver from fat quarter shop. All my quilts will have gray in them next year!

  4. I bought NOTHING. I am very happy with that! It also cost me NOTHING!

  5. I was amazed by the Black Friday 'riots'. I looked a bit online but then I decided I didn't really need anything on sale so I have no bargains to share. On the bright side, I didn't get hit :D

  6. still have vertigo, so can't drive, so no bricks and mortar shopping. Looked online and nothing I wanted was on offer, or maybe I have just lost the will to shop. Not like me I may add.

  7. I bought the Simplify thread set by Camille Roskelley for Aurifil from Fat Quarter Shop. It arrived last Friday and I've already used it! Today I ordered some 25th and Pine yardage in their 30% off Christmas fabric one day special. Love FQS! Pity the Aussie dollar is so weak at the moment.
