buzzing! 🐝


It's been a happy mail week! I certainly keep my postman busy.

First up is this lovely bundle of Chalk & Paint by Sew Caroline for Art Gallery Fabrics. These prints are just my style and I'm excited to get cutting and see how they play together.



I am a huge fan of Liberty fabric. I love it all; the traditional florals, the modern prints, the feel of lawn is just amazing. I discovered The Weavers Mill via Katie on Instagram and I am so happy she recommended this beautiful shop! 
The Weavers Mill has a gorgeous range of Liberty prints. You can buy 10" squares (which make it more affordable) or fat quarters, she has piping and binding too. Willemijn, the owner, has a 'thank you' offer so you get a discounted price on select fabrics depending on the total you spend, which is awesome! I can tell you that she also has the very best customer service and will respond to any messages or questions promptly and efficiently. I completely fell in love with these Liberty Lawns and they are even more delightful in real life because of their soft delicacy and the colours are just stunning:

Left column (top to bottom): Sketch AWiltshire S; Virtual Light B and Rachel de Thame B
Right column (top to bottom): Forgetmenots A; Marble Hearts A; Quenby C and Sam B


I was also excited about my next order from Fat Quarter Shop, I have a plan for the Constellations fabric though it might be a while yet before I get to cut into it.

clockwise from left: Constellations in White on Grey, The Whisper Palette by Lizzy House; Thread on Charm, Dare by Pat Bravo; Aurifil 12 weight in Natural White #2021 and Aurifil 40 weight in Dove #2600.


Then my lovely BOM box from Sew & Quilt came, we are already at month 6! I haven't even started, which takes great restraint, but since I'm currently hand quilting my first epp quilt and making progress with WIPS I may find time before the end of the year. It would make a nice winter project!



Another love of mine is stickers and this cute lot from Keena Prints will help motivate me! I love that girl shouting "Go! Go! Go!!!"...



And finally today was Manchester Day and The Studio Afflecks had an offer on tattoos of the Manchester Bee symbol. I love how many bees there are all around the city and on historic buildings. The idea of the 'busy bee', perseverance and working as a team mean a lot to me too. I had been wanting one for a while and it was just the excuse I needed!


It is a little red and sore because it's so new but I am really pleased with it. Off to rub cream on it now!

I hope you all have a fabulous week ahead :)
