I have been remiss in posting about some recent purchases, winnings and lovely gifts!!
Apologies to all for putting them in one big photo filled post.
Way back in February, I won this delicious pile of fabrics (stunningly folded) over at the lovely Malka's.
I haven't been able to even remove the ribbon yet, they look so very pretty!!
Some of you may be aware that I have been collecting Flea Market Fancy fabrics for this quilt (having been a bit late hopping on to that particular bandwagon).
So I found an EBAY listing of Jeanette's for an FMF charm pack which I quickly snapped up.
I was so delighted with my purchase that I asked her to whip up a couple more for me which she very kindly did!!
Yep!! That's the WHOLE collection!!!!
Still on the FMF front, the lovely Amy sent me this little collection of FMF scraps .... just because she thought it would make me smile.
And it DID Amy!!! Thank you so much for being a thoughtful and lovely bloggy friend!!
For that same quilt, I have decided to use some fabrics from Denyse Schmidt's other ranges. Specifically Katie Jump Rope and her newest offerings "Picnics and Fairgrounds" available at Joann's in the states (and soon to be released in Australia via Spotlight).
I snapped mine up at this lovely ETSY shop. (Thanks Rita for the heads up!!)
Unfortunately, when it arrived, one of the prints was missing but Amanda was so sweet about sending me the missing fabric (with a few shnippets of FMF in the parcel too). :-)
Another recent purchase was this awesome book by the lovely Nikki.
Tanya is doing an awesome sew-along, stitching every single project in the book. Want to join her? Check it out here!!
Next purchase is a divine brooch from the fabulous Ms Curlypops herself!!
I have worn it on bags, jumpers, jackets and even in my hair (there is a hair clip bit on the back as well as the usual brooch pin). Thanks Cam. I LOVE it!!!!
"More?" I hear you ask!!! "Surely not!!!!"
Oh yes there is!!
The lovely Judy (bestest yarn wrapper in town) has been doing a bit of stash busting, pulled out this amazing Alexander Henry print and thought of me!!
Thank you so much Judy. I have challah covers being planned in my head as I type!!!
Also .... Jenny has given me a new product to try. (Still haven't yet but I have plans Jenny. I have plans!!!)
For those of you who are already Steam-A-Seam fans, you can get yours at Amitie!!!!
And last ... but certainly not least .... I won some more fabric!!
I'm a very lucky girl. I know!!!!
Leanne of Mount Vincent Quilts was a guest blogger over at Chasing Cottons (where Bec is doing the most wonderful Quilt Class 101. You should go and check it out!!!)
As part of the guest blog post, there was a giveaway of a Fat 1/4 pack of the new range from Melly and Me called Where the Wind Blows. It is a lovely fabric range and I am looking forward to slicing into it!!!
Phew!!! What a long post full of so many wonderful links to wonderful people!!
Thank you again to everyone.
