I've been up to my ears in costumes.
Alice in Wonderland costumes.
lots of masks and unitards with tails and wings.
Needless to say, not a lot of "fun" sewing has been done. I have done some bee blocks, and I'm behind again with getting them to their homes.
Over the holidays my sister and a friend each got me a gift card to our local quilt shop. (Which happens to be right next to my sister's salon.) My sister gave me express instructions to buy things that I found pretty, just to have.
I've made two trips to the little shop.
Oh My Goodness.
Where do you even start? The first time I went in I found these:
1 yard of Sunkissed Gray Script and a 1/2 yard of Living Elements - Pink. The lady at the cutting table was very surprised that they went together so well.
I told myself that it was perfectly acceptable to spend more than $10 a yard on fabric. It was still hard to do. I've decided I need more than a yard of the Gray Script. I think I love it. No, I know I love it.
Today, I had more time to browse around. As I wandered around and around the little shop, I kept finding fabrics that I had received from the Fabric Fairy. It was like a treasure hunt! I kept smiling to myself and feeling very lucky to know such wonderful people.
I'm still smiling.
Today, I went in for more Sunkissed Gray Script, but instead I found their scrap bin and sale fat quarters.
I got these two fqs.
Botany! and 12 Days of Christmas!
Both will go nicely with the first Fabric Fairy package I received.
The scrap bin was great! I found 9 ounces of nice sized fabric bits.
Three Kona Solids, not sure which ones they are. (Which is the only bummer thing about buying from the bin, no labels.)
A Kate Spain print, another living elements, and some Pure.
It was a nice trip and put me in a good mood.
Happiness to you!
