ready for the weekend…

I’m hoping to have a fabric-filled weekend, how about you? Here are a few things I’m hoping to work on this weekend…

Maybe a little something out of these fun fabrics. Now that the weather’s getting cooler, I’m turning more towards these darker, jewel-toned fabrics. They feel fall/winter-ish to me.

And I definitely need to work on using up some more scraps (they’re still multiplying!). I’ve been storing some in this fabulous new enamelware casserole dish, which was sent to me by the sweetest reader (thanks so much Sheila!!)

Perhaps I’ll find some time to finally get around to quilting this little starburst quilt!

And I think I’ll be spending a little time waiting by the mailbox for my Innocent Crush fabrics!

(there’s also a lot of cleaning that really needs to be done, but that just doesn’t sound quite as fun, does it?!)

Hope you’ll have some fabric fun this weekend too!

    I love this time of year. I call it quilting season, which happens to coincide with football season for some strange reason. The promise of endless hours on Sunday afternoon, thanks to the NFL package and a DVR. Monday evening too. Oh, I love this season. Enjoy your weekend.

    Ooooh, I see some Riley Blake My Mind’s Eye in that stack. LOVE it! I’m a sucker for dark grays and jewel tones. Can’t wait to see what you whip up with that stack of goodies πŸ™‚

    Happy Friday to you!

    Ashley, that’s a delicious stack of fabrics you have there! I’m definitely hoping to make the most of my weekend off, too. I have a few swap items to whip up, a few last blocks for my husband’s birthday quilt to finish and sash, and the first of three baby quilts to get started (3 friends all having babies this fall/winter!). Hoping for at least 1/10 of your speed and brilliance this weekend. πŸ˜€

    I am totally drooling over those scrumptious fabrics! I can’t wait to see what you do with them :). Sounds like we have the same kind of weekend ahead of us…lots of sewing and ignoring the house chores (my kind of weekend!). Have a splendid afternoon!

    Love the casserole dish! I’m just working on my last summer colours quilt (aka the sunshine quilt) and then I am totally turning to all the lovely winter colours. And, erm… I’ll probably finish a quilt in time for spring.

    Wow, i love that color combo. Do you happen to remember any of the names of fabrics in it? There are a few that really strike my fancy that I have never seen before.

    Thanks for the fabric inspiration… what are you plans with that great fabric?

    Sam says:

    Wow. My two least favorite colors? Red and purple. I love every other shade of every other color, but for the most part I’m really not a fan of those two. But you swayed me real quick with that top picture. Everything looks awesome with gray.

    I love your stack of fabrics. Not a color combination frequently seen and it will work well for Fall/Winter without being as predictable as say oranges, browns, and yellows for Fall. And what a great enamelware piece! I love every chip and ding, and it looks all the better filled with your drool-worthy scraps πŸ˜€

    Love the enamelware. And boy, a handful of scraps would be a great giveaway!

    How many pieces of that pattern of enamelware do you have?
    I have one. A pitcher. I have had it about 35 years and would like it to join up with your piece. No charge. Just pay the postage. Sincerely, Linda Brannock
