Friday Fun Day and the Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

The weeks go by so fast over here. It seems like it was just Friday and now here we are again. Looking forward to another awesome weekend. 

Somehow the fabric manufacturers keep sending things to my house even though they all have the shop address. I got 300 lbs of fabric on the doorstep yesterday. It is Bekko from Michael Miller. Our first foray into Home Dec on a large scale. Here is a sneak peak (I don't have it loaded to the website yet because I couldn't remember for certain which prints I bought):


I can't wait to make bags and picnic quilts and floor pillows and re-cover all the chairs in the shop and... oh yeah, I forgot, sewing time's a little limited these days. I guess you guys will have to make all of those things so I can live vicariously through you.

My sweet friend Jenelle at Echinops and Aster is starting a stitch along called "The Honeycomb Stitch Along" I am intrigued and want to know more, don't you? We are sponsoring a prize for the link up at the end. Why not head on over and see what it is all about?

Honeycomb Stitch-Along Button


This reminds me that we have the Honeycomb pre-cuts from Moda coming this month in the prettiest of the solid colors... mmm what shall we make?  :)
So the giveaway is at Maureen's today. We are giving away this sweet bundle of Global Bazaar.


Head on over and see if you can win some :)

I hope to be back with Bekko pictures this evening.... I love it whan new fabric comes :)

Love,
Julie

I can't wait until March when I'm back home and can come into the shop again! Knowing you are there and I can't go is just killing me!

All those fabrics are pretty. I can't choose my favorite on this one post so it's good we don't have to. LOL

OhMyGoodness, I can't even imagine getting 300 lbs of fabric dropped off at my doorstep. My family would think I'd finally gone looney. Happy but looney :) I think the Bekko's quite nice.
