Spring Fever Hits
We had a few days last week where nothing much was done except a lot of soup-eating, sniffing, and movie-watching. I had some pretty bored kids after awhile and so when the little one was in bed, Suzannah and took up with the needle and thread and started in on some embroidery. I had some flour-sack towels ready for embellishing and lots of floss on hand and Suzannah picked out something that could be transfered onto the towel, and I picked a design from this book, which I lurve. Suzannah decided not to show her towel until hers is done.
Then, as quickly as we had been hit with all our bugs, they went away. Happy girls meant I could spend a little time finishing up some projects and thinking about more fabric. It seems that all kinds of fabulous fabrics have come out while we were holed up at home and so without further yakkity yakking…here’s the recent haul:
This will be for Isabel – a simple a-line dress or blouse.
Have you seen the new Moda line? ‘Wonderland’ from momo. I’m seriously in love with the whole line. All of it makes me want to sew for my girls. I love those flowers and the colors.
These are some fat quarters from Urban Chiks new line. I think these would make a nice baby blanket. All of these fabrics are very much out of my usual fare, but I seriously needed some jelly bean colors around here. All of this really lifted my spirits.
What lifts you out of your doldrums? I’d love to hear.
