I bought this a little bit ago so I could make myself a summer skirt. I’m still collecting more pieces of raspberry and mustard voiles, but when I get enough, this skirt is going to be amazing. Now, I just have to figure out who I can borrow a serger from so I don’t have to finish all the edges with a zig zag stitch. That just might make me crazy.
Are you collecting any fabric for a project?
PS I forgot to tell you when I put the May Block up. It’s back on the 31st. It was a learning experience, for sure. :) Link here.
Check out the pretty fabrics I got on sale at Pink Castle Fabrics a week or two ago! Brenda was clearing out a bunch of my favorite line EVER, Hope Valley, so I had to scoop up some of that of course. I’m proud of myself for showing restraint. I really wanted to buy it ALL. Don’t they look pretty stacked in color order like that? Seriously, I could just stare all day.
I snagged a couple oldies, but goodies, from Violet Craft, Joel Dewberry, and Anna Maria Horner.
Also this cute strawberry print that is just begging to be made into a darling little blouse for Lily.
I may have purchased a little of one Hope Valley print to back my Farmer’s Wife quilt, when it gets done, someday. Or a lot. Maybe like ten yards-ish.
What was that about restraint?
In other news, I have been off refined/processed sugars for 9 days now, and I can honestly say I don’t miss them. Hoping it will help with my weight loss goals. (Can’t hurt, right?) Plus, overall health is a great bonus, too.
What’s new in your stash?? Purchased any fabric lately? Are you a recovering sugar addict like me? Anything else you want to chat about?
I’ve been talking to five-year-olds all day, and as fun as that is, I wouldn’t say no to some good old grownup talk. Plus, my legs are SO SORE from the workout my friend had us do yesterday at the gym, that I might just be in this chair all afternoon–or at least until a kiddie soccer game comes-a-callin’. Deep Blue, here I come.
PS I’m updating my blog look soon, so don’t be startled if it looks different the next time you visit. I’m working on making some things easier to find :)
Sharing a little snippet of something I’m working on, fabric in my stash, or something on my longarm–because every Sunday needs a little inspiration. What’s inspiring you today?
PS I scored big time yesterday at Lizzy House‘s studio sale. Big time.
So this came today. I haven’t even been able to take it out of the box yet, because I’m too busy staring at it. But when it does come out of the box, it will become a free pattern for you, my pretties. (<–Yay!)
I love this job.
PS What are you loving right now? A fabric line? A holiday decoration? A song? Treat? Fill me in, chickadees.
