Well I some more new fabric in…it’s an obsession. But I must have beautiful fabrics especially when they’re great prices! They are all so fun and I actually have some plans for some of them. So there.
A beautiful rainbow array!
Gorgeous neutrals and some home dec fabric!
Fabrics that I really hope will help me finish my old row robin quilt…
And today I ordered some Tufted Tweets fabric!!!! Woohoo! I started with Hawthorne threads since they said they were coming out today and have this deal with descending prices for multiple purchases, yada yada yada… Well I checked the site about 4 times earlier today waiting for them to list them. No luck…not listed yet. So then I go back tonight, click on one of the fabrics and yeah! they are listed. Add to cart…next one, same thing. Then I move on to the purples that I’ve been obsessing over and they are already out of stock! Same with the red one that I wanted! So I sent them a bemoaning email and promptly went to another site to see if I could find them. And I did. A dollar more a yard, but cheaper shipping. So it all worked out. But I was completely annoyed that they were out immediately and with the number of times I checked today. Agh! But all’s well…because what really matters is that the fabric is on its way!!!!
I’ve been spending a lot of time in the planning stage…hence no quilting pictures. I’m in the process of laying out my paintbox quilt. I’m figuring out what to make for my partner for Modern Swappers and what to send. And I’m trying to figure out if I can pull off my idea for the doll quilt swap. The brain is whirling! But I think that I know what I want to do for all of it! And I’m glad that there is more time with some of these.
Oh and I decided to do another quilt along. It’s the asterisk quilt from the old red barn group on flickr. I’m planning on that one too. Oh goodness. I’ll get them all done, it’s just funny how much I have planned.
Oh yeah and I joined another bee (ducks head). I know! I’m nuts. But this one is all about Japanese fabric and that is soooo cool. I know I’ll love working with all those different imports. It doesn’t have a start date yet, so I’m safe for now…but I have a feeling life is going to get crazy come August when all my bees are in full swing!
Well…happy sewing to all. I’m certainly doing enough for 10 people!
