Sewed a Bit, Destashed a Bit, Ate a LOT!

I'm going to start with my true confessions for the day...I know I told you how happy I was to be going to the gym again and walking more...what I failed to share was that I've been eating...eating the most wonderful treats...Annelies over at Sew Blessed had these on her blog not too long ago. OMG, they brought back memories of going to the grocery store when I was a kid...my mom was never a big fan of the iced animal crackers, so most of the time we just got plain ones...but once in a while if I had been really good (notice I said once in a while) we got the iced ones. Well, when I saw Annelies' I decided I had to find them...on a quest I went. She had a different brand that I wasn't able to find here, but when we were at the grocery store the other day, they were rearranging the cookie aisle to fit in this Classics line of Nabisco cookies...you guessed it...this bag jumped right into our basket. Well here comes my confession...the bag was empty in about 2 1/2 days and no one else but me has eaten them...Better add another gym day. They sure were yummy! I'm afraid to buy another bag...I have no will power.

Here's my bit of sewing for the day...Fat Quarter Shop's Designer BOM block for this month......I love this hat! Then there was the Jelly Roll Sampler block......this was a really fun one to do.

Here's my Destashing effort for today.. ...Description and price under each picture. Price does NOT include shipping. I will ship in USPS Priority Mail flat rate boxes or envelopes if the item will fit. I wish I could ship internationally but the price is just crazy.

I never got Old Fashion Charm prints or plaids - very sweet line. Good buys for everyone! Woohoo - more destashing! A really good thing.

Love the new block, too.

Hi there, you can ship international if you use the prepaid global priority bags they fit a large amount of fabric in them for about $10 US

Ohmygosh -- I haven't had those cookies in years and I LOVE them. Good thing I don't do the shopping -- I don't have any willpower either!!!

Quilts And Pieces said...

I love iced animal cookies! But then again, I haven't met a cookie I didn't like. Love your blocks!

Michelle said...

My brothers and I were a little sadistic when it came to animal crackers. I remember having some kind of contest with them and biting off their heads (of the crackers not the brothers . . . .although some days . . . !)

Stephanie said...

My kids, in their 20s, were on a frosted animal cookie frenzy a bit ago. I daresay we went through more than a bag, and yes I participated in the eating. Love that cute santa hat block.

Sharon said...

I have fallen off the wagon on getting my walk in...too stinkin' hot! My weakness is Twizzlers, but the cookies look yummy and sure bring back memories!

Cindy said...

Carol, come help me - both with finding the cookies AND destashing.

And if all else fails, bring CHOCOLATE instead !!!

I LOVED those as a kid - I'd be afraid to look for them now, I don't have any willpower either! Love your new blocks and wow did you sell out of your stuff fast!

Kelly@ Charming Chatter said...

Oh now - a few cookies never hurt anybody (smile)! Love your blocks - and good for you on the destashing! Reminds me I need to get back to that!

Carrie P. said...

I remember eating those cookies when I was young. I think I would have the bag gone in a day. :D
Love your Santa hat block.

Iced animal crackers.....I've never heard of them, but some things I just don't need to know how good they are, I'll try not to look for those cookies at m grocery store, they sound heavenly.

That second FQS BOM is as cute as the first, which I thought was impossible, I can hardly wait to see the next one!
