fabric on my mind

This blog has become more about fabric and less about me actually doing any sewing, just to prove a point here's another post about fabric...

I had a delivery, some yummies from Hawthorne Threads:

I know, YUM!!
These are my favourites and I am seriously crushing on them!!

I also woke up to a lovely email yesterday from Adrianne at Little Bluebell to say I'd won a FQ bundle from The Intrepid Thread! This is such a pretty bundle that Adrianne put together when shopping for her Peaceful Pagoda quilt. She posted about her process and I commented that I loved her choices at the time so I am so thrilled to have won! Thank you so much to Adrianne (for having great taste!) and Julie for the giveaway :)

If you're loving it too you can buy your own Peaceful Pagoda bundle here!
It really is good fortune since I had a giveaway of two charm packs of Kate Spain's 'Good Fortune' and didn't have any of my own! :) The bundle includes other lines too, check the link above to see the list in more detail.

If you're hating me a little bit please don't, why not do some winning of your own by entering the giveaways still open at the Fugly Fabric Party?!!

There's a few fashionably late links so go check it out - there's currently 67 links! :)

Charm About You

Remember tomorrow is the last day to link up your own fugly fabric posts before the party closes, click the button above to read all about it!

The winner of the Pezzy charm pack will be chosen on Tuesday.

I have been hard at work on the blocks for my secret quilt and was worried I wouldn't be making too much progress because it's half term here so I have 2 little ones under my feet for the next week, that means no nap time sewing!! - Honestly I'm glad to have them both around really, I miss the boy when he's at school!

Tomorrow, however, I have some boring stuff to do and my very kind and wonderful mother and step father have volunteered to have them both for the whole afternoon so I get a little me time too! I am SO grateful!

Once the jobs are done I should have about 2 or 3 hours free sewing time - yippee!! Hopefully I'll have something to show for myself! How much do you think I can get done??
