Fabric Surprise

Gosh, a whole week has whizzed by since my last post. I’ve been busy, but not with much to show for it. I had a little trip to see TheSecondChild over the weekend. We had a lot of fun visiting and stocking his pantry. You know, like mothers do.

When I got back home I had a fun fabric surprise from SweetiePie and TheFirstChild waiting for me.

Thimbleanna: Fabric

Look at those great gray prints! SweetiePie sure knows what I like! (L to R: Just Type by Patty Young (LOVE), Uno Style by Stof.dk, Simply Color by V and Co., Shades of Grey by Exclusively Quilters, and Pure Style by Stof.dk.)

I also won a giveaway from Sherri a few weeks ago. It was a gift certificate from Fashionable Fabrics and the fabrics arrived while I was gone. I thought the knitting sheepies might be fun to make a needle carrier or knitting bag or something. Hopefully I’ll get around to it before too long — my needles are a mess!

Other than that, not much excitement around here. The Steampunk quilt is all basted and ready for me to begin quilting — I’m excited to get started. Oh, and when I was reading Jan’s blog yesterday, she mentioned how much she loved her sewline pencil’ and it reminded me that I forgot to tell you that I put some of the Sewline gift sets into my little shop. Just in case you want one for the big event coming up in a few months LOL.

I love, love, love those Sewline pencils — they made the Steampunk quilt so much easier to work on.

That’s it! Have a good week!

    OMG. You always have/find such fabulous, fancy, fashionable, fun, funky fabrics. How is that for alliteration?

  17. What a nice gift! The Unostyle fabric is … I love it.

  18. What a great selection of fabrics ~ all of them! It will strain my willpowere to keep from searching some of them out. I’m really really trying to restrain myself and work with my stash. (I know, what a sacrifice…) I checked your shop for the Sewline pencil set ~ sold out already?

  19. I really like the sheep knitting fabric. I like the idea that sheep might be able to sit there and knit wool straight off their backs( somehow magically spun etc. )
    I have a Sewline needle thereader that I had to buy in order to be able to thread my very fine appliqué needles. It works so well. I will watch out for other products in that line – it was new to me.

  20. New fabric! I love the grays! The other little group is pretty … you are going to be having a fun time with those!

  21. You did have lots of wonderful surprises upon your return, love the fabrics!

    I have been looking at your lovely blog, so much talent! You quilt, you sew, knitting… I specially liked the sweater! So jelous!
