I picked up a couple fat quarter bundles from my LQS. The larger bundle is all Buggy Barn fabrics and the smaller bundle is called Zen II. I fell in love with the purple and sage in this line. Not sure what I am going to make with them so until then they will live in my fabric hutch. I would like to go back and get some more yardage of Zen II for potential borders before it’s all gone…don’t think this line will stick around very long.
I absolutely fell in love with this winter wall hanging by Crabapple Hill called Over the River and Through the Woods from the moment I saw it. I finally bit the bullet and ordered it online and can not wait to start it! With all the hand embroidery I have selected this quilt to be my summer project. We just purchased a new RV and plan to camp most of the summer as a family. So while the boys are off exploring, I plan to plug away at the beautiful embroidered scenes in this quilt.
Okay now for this beauty!!! My DH gave me a gift certificate to my LQS for Valentine’s Day this year. Perfect gift I have to say…nothing says I love you more than FABRIC!!!! After careful consideration….(okay…it was more like a big sweeping grab)…I picked a kit for The Queen and Her Court quilt. I can’t even describe how adorable this fabric is. The mix of cream, pink, green and brown are simply striking, not to mention the block arrangement with the dancing applique flower vine! I am forcing myself to put this one away while I complete my other BOM’s I have on the go and then completely focus on this one and give it the undivided attention it deserves.
So there you have it. I’ve been shopping a lot more than usual, falling victim to a little retail therapy. Not being able to sew after having surgery on my right hand has been more than difficult. But think of all the fun I will have once I’m healed and have full function of my hands. Shouldn’t be long now, I will have my stitches out in a week and should be right back at it.
