All this dreaming has been accompanied by a burst of fabric buying... both on-line and locally. First to arrive were these little Kona of the month club gems from Sew Sisters. Gotta tell you, this is one of the best Christmas presents I've gotten in a long time. Fabric that keeps arriving month after month? Yes, please! That's Chinese Red, Snow, Parchment, and Pepper for you Kona watchers out there!
Mariners Quilt Guild is having a strip exchange this year! For each meeting, a colour or style has been assigned. To participate, members sign up the week before. I'm in for the polka dot exchange at our next meeting. It's a little nerve wracking choosing fabric for an challenge, but I thought this one would give lots of colour options. And check out that selvage!
I've so far resisted buying any of the fabrics from the Timeless Treasures Mini line, even though my local shop has brought in a pile of them. But I never noticed these little hedgies. I do love some hedgehog action! I must continue to resist the flamingos, zebras, and monkeys... and foxes. Let's not forget the foxes.
You might remember these colours from a post a while back... I've finally decided to use them for my Toes in the Sand sampler. Orange and teal! I have lots of fabric in those colours, but I felt like I needed a some prints that weren't one or the other. There just wasn't anything available locally, so off I clicked to Hawthorne Threads.
And then there are the "just because" fabrics that I threw in the virtual shopping basket. I mean, I was paying shipping anyway, right? The glasses were just too fun and hipster to leave behind, the text print has been calling my name for a while now, and the Valori Wells Wrenly print was on sale. Enough justification for you?
I've got to stop buying and get back to sewing! Maybe tomorrow....
