Well, what a week I have had. I have received so much fabric that I don’t know which project to start first.
Firstly, a nice little charm square set of Aunt Grace spots turned up in the post. I won them on ebay through this store. They are just the perfect size to add to my stash of Aunt Grace scraps. I am making a cute hexagon quilt out of my scraps. Stay tuned for more on this project.
Secondly, my parents-in-law returned from their UK holiday and presented me with one of my most desired fabrics. They picked me up some beautiful strawberries on bright blue Cath Kidston oilcloth. Cath Kidston fabric is a little bit on the expensive side (but the fabrics are beautiful), not to mention the freight costs to Australia, which their stores charge. So, when my mother-in-law asked what fabric I wanted picked up this time, I jumped at the no freight charge. I want to cover my sewing table like this. The nice 1.5m length should do the trick.
Also, I had some Cath Kidston fabric swatches arrive in the post (left hand column). And, my parents-in-law got some more swatches for me while in the UK (right hand column).
Thirdly, I am in sewing mode making lots of custom order dolls, dolls to sell on etsy, and dolls to sell at an upcoming local craft market. I was feeling the need of a new injection of colours to my stash.
So, this is what I ordered and received from Dutchland Quilt Patch.
You might notice a tendency toward Aunt Grace fabrics here, but the cute small prints are perfect for my dolls.
This is what I received from Mama’s Log House.
Finally, I have wanted to put a name tag on my dolls to identify them as made by Maisie. Well, they have finally turned up and just in time for my big sewing bee this weekend.
Now… if I could just find out how much longer my sewing machine will be away being serviced for…
