Welcome to Fabric Tuesday!!It's Tuesday, time to share those fabric projects! And I actually have a couple for you. First I have to tell you a really funny story. I was in Utah several weeks ago staying at Heather's house. And actually our other sister Amy was there to witness the funniness. Well my boys were riding in one of those bikes that has a little bucket in the back, here is the awful picture from my camera phone:
So my older boy in front, Sawyer, says to his little brother, Oliver, in back: "Ollie get in! We're going to the fabric store!!" We all had a really good giggle. Except my husband when I told him. Good thing he doesn't read this blog. He's concerned with our boys knowledge of fabric. The other day Sawyer was mad at me and thought of the worst thing he could say to me, "Mom your fabric is NOT cute!"
And yay! I actually have something to share this week! Heather and I are working on patterns so much we can't share anything until the pattern is done. But I have a little baby shower to attend tomorrow and I put this together for the first time mommy.
Ugh. Can you spot my mistake? Okay, that's risky to put out there, I'll get comments like "Well I think your stitching could have been straighter" and "the font you chose is lacking..." I'll just say what it is. I forgot to stitch the inner circle on the "a"! Boo!! Gotta fix that tomorrow.
And I backed it with some yummy minky.
Makes for such a fast blanket, no batting needed. And I LOVE this Ann Kelle Ready, Set, Go! line for Robert Kaufman. Actually I love all her stuff.
And next, this delicious pile of fabric. Makes my heart beat faster. Heather and I had a 20 minute conversation today about how we're addicted to fabric. Sincerely addicted. More on that another time.
I got these stacks (minus the solids) from the Fabric Shoppe. It's Central Park from Kate Spain. I couldn't resist cutting into it and making a pattern from it immediately.
Okay enough of that, on to
