On pause.

That’s what this blog will be until later this month! I’m leaving town later today for a bit and I know there will be no sewing done meanwhile. Fabric shopping might be a different story… Something that there’s been no lack of around here recently.

Fabric pile

Even managed to nab one yard of the precious latest Heather Ross.


And while my friends and family know and love me, it’s only you, my bloggyland friends who really “get” my fabric cravings. Proof: In an astonishingly kind gesture, Amanda Jean put a little birthday gift in the mail to me.

VW Vans

Yes. That’s right. You are seeing what you are seeing. VW Vans!!! A fat quarter of each and I couldn’t have been more thrilled. I was all out and you all know just how hard it is to get your hands on this stuff these days! I’ve decided that I’m not cutting into until I’m making a baby quilt for MY baby. Who know when that will be, but the buses are going untouched until then! Thanks Amanda Jean!!

Meanwhile, I’m slowly, occasionally, adding a block to the wall.


Oh hi.

Block close up

    Great, someone else who buys fabric in large quantities – usually I always see fat quarters in the stash pictures online…

    Beautiful fabrics and enjoy your time away!

    I just love your blog, it’s really my favorite. It’s mostly because i’m all about the fabric and you have all the stuff I have and wish I had! I love the way you group colors in your blocks, it’s always dead on. I just got the pink campers last week from my boss! Lucky you and me.

    Its you! Your choice of fabrics reflect your personality and outlook on life. You must be a fun gal who enjoys life. Have a good time away from quilting. (Are we ever very far from our obsession?)

    I just bought some of the same fabrics!
    Is that the Tina Givens pink polka dot with the brown birds? Where did you find it? I’m trying to get my hands on some more.
