Well, I succumbed. I finally got my hands on some Denyse Schmidt Sugar Creek fabrics from JoAnn’s. These are my daughter’s favorite colors right now, so I think they’ll be a fun project for us to put something together for her room. Now that Junior High is official, we’re transitioning into ‘big-girl room’. I think these will serve us well, don’t you?
These fabrics are 30% off this week at Joann, including online. Just saying.
Then there’s this pile. I really have so many projects in the works right now I’ve been trying to just shop my stash (which is very fun as it is.) But then I found these three and couldn’t walk away. The two on the right are from Joel Dewberry’s newest collection, Heirloom. That orange floral just call’s my name. (It’s available here or here.) I’ve always wanted to make one of Amy Butler’s bags and I think this is the fabric to use.
The lovely gray print is from Taza by Dena Designs for Free Spirit. It also comes in a perfect yellow. I don’t know what to do with it, but I just loved it too much to leave it unattended.
And now, I must go on a fabric buying hiatus until I finish 5 unfinished projects. I’m making that declaration publicly so that I won’t cave!
This is one of those projects in the works, thanks to the lovely generosity of a new friend. Sweetwater’s Countdown to Christmas. Well, just as I was embarking on my fabric-accumulating-hiatus, this pretty bundle arrived on my doorstep. It’s a new collection by Amanda Murphy called Veranda (available at Fat Quarter Shop). There may even be some leftover to share – stay tuned!
Oh dear, so much fabric, so little time.
And now this post is why I cringe any time a neighbor or friend from my real life tells me, “I found your blog!” because I sound like such a nerd extolling the virtues of fabric. In my real life I don’t walk up to people at church or PTA meetings or the grocery store wildly describing my latest obessesions in fabric. I don’t even get that excited about it around my own family. But I know there are those of you out there like me who “get” this weirdness and I thank you for indulging me. (And so do my family and neighbors who are spared all the details of something they just don’t appreciate like you and me. 🙂
