charming stash and my favourite photo

Sometimes there are whole fabric collections that I would like to have and the best way of getting a little of everything is pre-cuts. This week a lovely parcel arrived from Green Fairy Quilts containing just that!

I ordered two charm packs of Just a Speck by Jen Kingwell because I love all those beautiful colours. Two charm packs of Behind the Scenes by Jen Kingwell because I can't have enough low volumes or grey/black prints. And one charm pack of Little Miss Sunshine by Lella Boutique because it's so pretty!

I have no specific plan for any of these but I know I will use them all.

Yesterday my husband took the kids to the seaside, which meant a break for me, and despite it looking glorious it was actually freezing cold. He took some beautiful pictures...

Lois is now three and I can't believe how fast she's growing!

Joan is always fun:

but I adore this serene picture because she looks so meditative. It's definitely one of my favourite photos.

I'm working on a quilt tonight and enjoying a peaceful Sunday. I hope you are too!

  1. The Jen Kingwell fabrics are on my wish list, and I like buying pre-cuts for that reason as well and then when you find one piece of fabric you like you can buy yardage.

  2. What beautiful fabrics! And the girls are so cute :) I'm thinking a quilt made of the former for the latter might be just the thing?

  3. When I started sewing again I bought charm packs and found them so useful for bees and scrappy quilts
