Well, we’re back from Florida. It was nice to get away, and even nicer to be in a warm, sunny climate. We both were working though, so it was less of a vacation and more of just an opportunity to be warm. It certainly was no fun to return to the 7 degree temps of Vermont.
I was happy to return to my sewing machine though, and also to a pile of new fabrics. When I go away and I can’t sew, I tend to shop…
I just couldn’t resist the new Anna Maria Horner Little Folks voile –
I wasn’t sure what to expect, but now I’m totally in love. I laughed when I kept reading on other blogs about how people just wanted to touch this fabric, but it’s totally true. You’ll want to do the same thing. Trust me. I don’t have any specific plans for it, but even if it just sits in a pile looking pretty, that would be fine with me! Purchased from Charlie and Lindsay at Hawthorne Threads.
And of course I couldn’t resist replenishing my Hope Valley stash…
I needed some extras for my orange and purple Hope Valley quilt, and I got a bit more of the blues and grays for another quilt I have in mind. I purchased some yardage from Kathy at Pink Chalk Fabrics, and some from Kerri at Sew Deerly Loved.
And lastly, solids. Of course. You know I never tire of them.
Half of these are Kona cottons, and the other half are Moda Bella Solids.
Now I just wish I had time to sew!
