Shoot! I meant to post before now. I just can’t seem to get caught up around here. Plus, we had a very busy weekend last weekend. I spent one day with the family cleaning up leaves at MeMum and BigDaddy’s house and the other day sewing with the quilty peeps. I was working on the Ghastlies. ‘Cause, of course, I didn’t get them done by Halloween and I don’t want them being a UFO until next Halloween.
Junie finished up an adorable quilt that she made for a new baby in her extended family. She said it’s a Moda Bakeshop pattern, but I’m too lazy to look up the link for you. I love the little surfing monkey and the baby’s name on the quilt. (Sorry for the dark photos — it was pretty late in the afternoon by the time I remembered to take pictures.)
Gurney was working on this very pretty Crabapple Hill snowman pillow. I have this pattern in my stash and hope to make it someday. Gurney is a wonderful embroiderer.
And Jewels (the hostess with the mostest) worked on her cute little dresden plates. They’re pretty small and very perfect. They’re all hand-pieced and Jewels is the master. I love them!
Ok, so here’s my market fabric report. Once again, I bought WAY too much fabric. At least it was less than last time, but still. I blame it on the excitement of the Sample Spree Moment. In the back of this picture is Sunkissed by Sweetwater, Anna Griffin’s new line is in the foreground, and to the right is the only fat quarter stack that I was really there for — Sherbert Pips by Aneela Hoey. CrazyMom has a picture of the prints all spread out — I can’t bring myself to take my cute stack apart. I love those pips, but I’m 100% positive that CrazyMom will have something done with her pips before I do, ’cause she actually uses her fabric!
Then, I was innocently wandering past the Lecein booth and I spotted this adorable Little Red Riding Hood pack. I couldn’t help myself. I probably won’t be able to cut into this fabric either.
And last, but not least, The Cat in the Hat. My new fabric obsession. I want to buy it by the bolt. C’mon now — how can you resist Thing1 and Thing2 all over their own piece of fabric??? Just imagine the pillowcases, BOXERS, quilt backs, and more. Can you blame me???
Since I’ve spent all day in the dungeon cleaning out fabric and junk (new furnace coming next week so cabinets have to be moved) I’m thinking all this new fabric really wasn’t necessary. On the other hand, I have lots of stuff heading to Goodwill now, so I have new room to stock up!
Have a great weekend!
