Goodies in the mail and a finished quilt

Today was a great mail day! I love getting boxes from my main fabric source, it's kind of like Christmas morning when I unpack it!


Todays package contained a mix of fabrics, I've got some Alexander Henry, Michael Miller, Robert Kaufman, Timeless Treasures and there's even a Riley Blake bloom and grow bundle in here. It also contained 3 Janelle Wind patterns that were part of my birthday gift from hubby, I can barely wait to make them up!!

I just love this giraffe fabric..it has to be one of my all time favorite prints.


I'm still not finished cleaning up the rest of the house from my great studio reorganization and cleaning, so my self restriction from my sewing machine continues. I am however, still allowing myself hand sewing time in the evenings while Hubby and I are watching TV. Last night I put the final stitches in the binding on this baby quilt. The fabrics are mostly Riley BLake's Wheels line with a couple pieces from my stash thrown in here and there.

The quilt is part of a gift set I'd been working on before I started cleaning, You can also see the matching burps in the picture. I still have a patchwork bib and possibly a couple more items to add to the set before I can list it.




Also in the finished category is this little patriotic table topper,


I actually finished this last month, but I completely flaked on getting pictures taken and it's been just sitting in a HL bag with the additional prints I purchased to make a quilt.


Ok, Now I simply must get some cleaning done so that I may sew!!

Oh my! I love those giraffes! Who does that fabric? I must get some. I have been indulding my desire for cute novelty fabrics with the justification that I can use it as large blocks on a baby quilt :)

Hi Michelle; I have sent you two emails via the email address you gave me, but both have returned to me. Would you send me your email details again please, so I can check it against my records. I want to send you my Free July pattern for the Early Bird Christmas Crafting.
Kind Regards
Judith
