Sewing Saturday

Today I toddled off for another sewing class with Amy. We made a cushion. And I used the beautiful Amy Butler corduroy I got last week. It is so soft and yummy. I could just imagine a lovely soft quilt made with it.
Anyway - I just walked through the door and my sweet girl claimed it for herself. Just lucky I have enough material to make another one.
Now I've got itchy fingers to make something else - but I really should get packing. There is so much to do. And really I'd rather be scrapping or sewing.
Oh well - I can do that next week.
6 sleeps to go.
If I don't pop in before then - see you in a week or 2,

The mailman pulled into my driveway this morning to bring me a box. Which was not easy to get into as I've packed away all my scissors  - Duh!

So with my trusty old pen I prized open the lid to see a beautifullly wrapped package. What's in there?
A new bag pattern. Eek! So cute. Cannot wait to make it. Although I might have to wait until we move and I'm all set up again.
And I also bought a yard of each of Joels Heirloom fabrics in Citrine. And they are just as pretty as I thought they'd be.
Plus I got a yard of Amy Butler Lotus dots. Love them. (I totally loved the paper version too!)
And some Amy Butler Soul Blossoms Corduroy, which is destined for a cushion. Yum Yum!
And I just wanted to say that the service from Quilt Home has been fabulous. The speed, the price, the packaging. All stellar. Thanks ladies.

Anyone else planning on sewing up a storm?

Boxed up

So we've finally found a new place to live. Hip hip hooray! And this is a pic of my soon to be dining room - or scrap room. Not sure yet. Have to see how we can get our furniture to fit in. I'm so excited to move, but we are still 2 and a half weeks away. I hope it flies.
We've got alot of stuff packed - but there's still a ton to go.
Can't wait to get the keys in my hands and get settled again.

Have a happy week,
