It was sort of a good news bad news week around here last week. Nothing major thank heavens. With the kids back in school I attempted to find myself back in some sort of working schedule...what was I thinking? Lots of little unfinished obstacles keep parking themselves in my path.
Good news first. All my newest fabrics are in and they are prettier than I imagined.
From Nostalgia Organics this sweet set (minus Happy Days as it is yet to be restocked). Delicate and sweet. Very vintage nursery rhyme looking. I really like the chicken wire print.
These gorgeous vintage feed sacks are a gift from the oh so sweet Donna at Donna's Lavender Nest. Crisp prints with the most wonderful vintage cotton weave.
Lecien fabric prints that can be difficult to find seem even more special in my stash.
Amazing...detail and color like no other. I have waited months for this Rosalie Quinlan fabric...Folk Heart. It has become a new favorite.
I have found the sweetest little Japanese Etsy Sewing Shop. I can't wait to try my hand at these feminine patterns. I want to try more sewing for me this year...one can only hope. This shop is well priced and run by a lovely lady. I recommend it if you are looking for Japanese sewing books.
For the bad news...the day after Christmas I order a handful of Lori Holt patterns from a little pattern shop on Etsy. I was so excited to have found them on Etsy I couldn't wait to start on something more advanced. Well wouldn't you know it...here I am with all the fabric and no patterns. I have emailed and emailed and now I have had to report the store to Etsy and still nothing.
(Please note this shop is not Lori Holt's just one that carries her patterns)
Complaining is not my nature so I will enjoy my fabric in all its beauty and hope that my good news bad news continues in this vein. Heaven knows there are bigger problems that I could have. Bigger than missing patterns.
