Ohhhh, so tempting!

Hi there!

(Sidles up close)

(Looks around, to see if anyone else is near)

We're all quilters and sewists here, right?

(You nod and smile.)

Well, ya know how it is . . . ya have these fabrics that caught your eye a few years back. Actually they sang a siren song to you, even knew your name.
Before you knew it, those fabrics were in your hands, and you were overcome by the color, the feel, and the creative urges and new designs that danced in your imagination.

Well, that's how it is with me, anyway. (Grin)

Take a peek at these lovelies:





Be. Still. My. Heart.

These babies have been waiting patiently for me. Each time I think about a new project, they sing softly and remind me they are here.


Sometimes I take them out and show them some love, but I have never been able to bring myself to use them. Not yet. But now I think it's time.

My new design is a super way to showcase these, and still have enough left for a quilty project later!


By the way, in case you are wondering, these are some Kona Bay Asian fabrics that are definitely drool worthy!

I'm trying to find time to work on this, and put together a tutorial for you. Been hard lately. There are these things called bills that keep popping up in my mailbox, and these people that expect them to be paid. So, Heigh ho, heigh ho, it's off to work I go. But I will find time to play! (Folds arms, looks determinedly at you) I promise!

Love,

  3. Ooooh, those sing to me too. I am so glad I didn't see them where I could get my hands on them or I would have probably bought more. Ha ha.
