Yes I am still very much alive and breathing even after fighting off the lurgy's that the big and small birdies insist on bringing home and sharing with anyone who comes too close!
The smallest OWB is the most efficient carrier since she loooves to kiss and cuddle her big brothers, but you have to be better than that to bring down the Mother Bird!
Before we get on to fabricky goodness......four parcels this week...so so bad...I thought I'd better show a quick pic of On A Whim before she gets quilted, it's only been a year or so since I finished it!
I'm very excited to see it come back from the longarmer especially with the soft pink backing...mmm
Ok...fabric, here we go
Hoodwinked by Dear Stella , it's Owls people, and mushrooms and Deer frolicking in the woods, I just like them ...Ok?
More low volume, yes I know I have quite alot now but it's always good to have variety, and I do have a couple of scrappy quilts planned that need lots of low volume variety.
Top to bottom we have Sweet Things Tossed Blossoms which is now sold out at FS, but it was only $4.98/yard!,Botanics in Charcoal and Everyday Favourites by Robert Kaufman also on sale and still in stock!
I never got around to buying any Sprout from the Madrona Road line so I grabbed myself some Peony , Bright Zucchini and Pomegranate all only $3.98 per yard people!! Bargain!
Just to fill the parcel I rounded it out with Happy Ever After and Avalon in Turquoise and Red, which I thought would make great bindings.These are also sold out as they were on sale but they still have a little yardage left in Light Mustard & White
This I just thought was a great LV print with a sewing theme and possibly should have bought a little more....Draw Near
The next few lovelies all come courtesy of Hawthorne Threads and their fabulous ability to flatten out fat quarter bundles......however the first pick is a half yard stack that I first saw here , I removed a couple and added a couple and voila!
Lizzy House Pearl Bracelet Peach
Emmy Grace Little Town In Glee
Denyse Schmidt Ansonia Fine Stripe Onyx
Zig Zag in Shell by Dear Stella
Elizabeth Olwen Grey Abbey Deco Floral Grey ORGANIC
Rae Hoekstra Lotus Pond Fluttering Fields ORGANIC
Art Gallery fabric just has the most divine feel and this bundle was calling my name ..... NouvElle ...well not exactly my name but you get the gist, that Emmy Grace print seems to go with everything!
I love the Spring feel of this print...probably because it's been so damp here!
Emmy Grace is also an Art Gallery range and I really like the Boho Chic girliness of the prints
Stitched Road in Granite, Ripples in Sea and Rose
Fawn Day in Murk , don't you just love the name?
Below is the reason for purchasing in the first place, more Heath was needed for another project but I ordered the Home Dec weight instead of quilting cotton, bad, bad words were said but it just meant i had to order more and fill another parcel....woe is me
And because I feel sorry for you guys here is a random picture of some funky looking orange funghi growing on some lichen at my friends house ....
I promise to show you some actual sewing this week, cross my heart and hope not to be smothered in fabric mwahaha...linking up with Molli
