Creating a home by hand.

Lots of Fabricy Goodness

Yesterday when I went to check the mail, I had a lovely package waiting for me that I’ve been waiting excitedly to arrive. Kristyne from over at Pretty by Hand recently hosted a giveaway on her blog sponsored by Shay from Simply Sweet Fabric. And I won!!

Aren’t they pretty! The Red Riding Hood fabric is by Lecien and the other five fat quarters are Lecien Old/New 30’s.

Thanks so much Kristyne and Shay. I already have a plan for what to make with the 30s prints. The Red Riding Hood fabric I’m just going to enjoy having in my stash until I find the perfect project for it.

I’ve also been exploring some of the local quilt shops and thought I’d share a few of the fabrics that have come home with me.

This gorgeous floral with the coordinating blue is destined to be turned into a gift for a new friend.

I may have to go back and buy some more so that I can make something for me out of it too.

These red prints will be used to frame redwork embroidery.

The tiny hearts and umbrellas just make me smile.

And these beauties are going to be used to make a new set of travel bags for me.

I’m hoping to get started on the travel bags this weekend, so watch for a post with the finished bags soon.

Have a wonderful weekend filled with Aloha and may you too have lots of fabricy goodness (or whatever would be that equivalent in your life.)
