Oh my, its been so long and I've missed you terribly. I have been so fortunate to have some play time and you know how long I've been dreaming of that! So, the creative bug has bitten me and I'm deliriously happy with some of the things I've been working on.
I've also been having a great time with my grand daughters. Brooke is now 5 and starting kindergarten next week. Little Maddie is now walking and keeping grandma on her toes. I think I just might have found a happy balance of loving and spoiling my family while creating daily. How lucky can one woman be?
I have some new fabrics to share with you as well. I don't have a lot of time today but I hope to add them to my fabric choices page very soon. At the very least, I'll post them here along with some new things I'm working on.
Here is a fun fabric series I found at Joanne Fabrics. I fell completely in love with how fresh and bright they are. I know I will regret only buying some pieces because they are going fast, but alas, there are just so many! They inspired a re-styling of one of my favorite pincushions, the big round patchwork which can be found in my shop here.
You can find the blue dot in the little house pincushion at the top of this post. I have 3 houses available at the time of this post at my shop here. I have this bright little blue beauty shown above, a shabby rose print and also a 1930's version. Pop on over and take a look!
I wanted to give a biscornu pattern a try. I used one of these fabrics to make a black and white flower version, a pretty batik and an adorable princess and a fox print. you can find a few of them in my shop, but the black and white flower prints was one of my favorites.
I have to go for now. I'll show you a few more fabrics and I'll be back soon. I promise!
If you find yourself inspired by these and want me to try something just for you, contact me through my Etsy Shop- Fiberluscious. I'd love the challenge!
