Fabric and Friends

A few months ago I said I was on a fabric diet. Well, it didn't work. I mean, really, is that even possible. So now I am happily off the wagon. And never getting back on. Lucky for me, my mommy and daddy got me a MONDO gift certificate for a graduation present. One was for Superbuzzy. So that stack above is some of what I got with it. Super yumminess. The other one is for Fat Quarter Shop, and that will take quite some time to spend. Its a rough job, but somebody's gotta do it!

Say hello to my friend Maja.
She's from Germany. Total hippie. Love her to death. She's got a smile that can light up this whole town (that's her cheesy smile). Yesterday I made her a little giftie. I had some fabric from Superbuzzy with German phrases on it (Different order than the previously mentioned order. Yes. I know. Its a problem.).

And I sewed a sweet little "I Love You" tag in to the binding on the back.

I've been spending a lot of time in the studio, sketching and sewing. I'm almost done with a SUPER CUTE applique pattern. My Aunt is still in town, so I've got to get as much done as I can while she's still here!

Happy stitching, peeps!

Today was a quiet day...I ran some errands, then came back to sew. My Aunt is in town, so she wrangles the kids while I get to play. Lately I am all about rainbows.

I joined the Jacob's Coat Quilt-a-long. I had originally planned to use all blue fabrics, but after I got my fat quarter stack of Denyse Schmidt's Hope Valley, I just couldn't resist. Besides, I had a little birdie on my shoulder telling me to do it.

The photos of the fabric don't really do it justice: it is AMAZING in person!
Now go play with some rainbows!
