I just love aqua fabrics. I'm starting to collect them for a particular quilt I have in mind.
You guys know how I feel about greens and these cute little numbers were begging to come live at my house. I couldn't deny them that, could I?

I did manage to get one thing made while Amy was here. I used this gorgeous fleece to make a wrap using this tutorial. I had no idea they made fleece so pretty. I wore the wrap to BUNCO and I plan to make several more in various colors. They are easy, comfy and pretty. What more could a girl ask for?

I ordered other fabrics, too. But the Dots were not in the box. But this was:
Now, don't get me wrong. This is perfectly good er, uh, pretty (?) fabric??? I guess. Maybe. However, I'm going out on a limb here. But the type of quilter that might order Kaffe Fassett (on a regular basis, from this particular store) doesn't strike me as the type of quilter that might also order fabric with wreaths and poinsettas and jingle bells. But that's just me. Maybe I'm wrong. The store gave me a refund for the Kaffe Fassett fabric and is letting me keep this other stuff. I don't even have to send it back. Oh Yay!
**disclaimer. This post is not meant to offend anyone that may like the above fabric. Its just not my style and I found some irony in the whole situation.**

I've been sewing every day. And I'm on cloud nine. I love love love having my machine in the middle of my kitchen table. Because not only have I met all of my decluttering goals this week, I've kept up on the dishes, picked up toys each night AND still found time to sew my little heart out.
I think I might have to tell Jason that my machine has found a new home. Do you think he'll mind?

And that become this.......
And I'm just so stinkin' excited over what these fun 30's prints have started to become, I can't STAND it. I hate keeping secrets...but I'm just not ready to share yet. Soon enough...soon enough. Now I'm off to sort some laundry. Hardly seems fair, huh? I have all of these beautiful fabrics out and begging to be played with. And I have to do laundry. Hhhmpppff. Ben asked me today (after I nagged him for the fiftieth time to pick up some toys) "Why do you get to sit and do everything you want to do all day? Someday can I just have a day when I don't do anything except just play?" I told him he could have that day just as soon as I get mine!

And I have to have some. They are sold at Michael's for.........
Did you hear me???? ONE DOLLAR
Seriously, these are so cute I'm literally in pain! My heart is breaking ~ why? Because my Michael's discontinued them and no longer has any!!! OMG! How could they discontinue something so stinkin' cute??? So, this is where you guys come in. If you have a Micheal's near you and would be so obliged, I would pay you to purchase 10 of these for me and ship them to my house. Seriously, I will. Paypal, check, money order.....whichever method you prefer. Pretty please? Anyone?
