Shh! Don’t Tell My Husband….

But I got more fabric last week!!!  A bunch of it came in the mail and then…well I just couldn’t help it I went shopping in person too!

I ordered some Joy by Kate Spain from Julie at Intrepid Thread. I bought only 2 yards of Christmas fabric, but I’m not keeping it, at the end I will only have a 5″ square of each. Yup, that’s right, I have joined a Christmas in July Charm Swap, hosted by Manda Made Quilts on flickr. Here is a link to the post, there are still a few spots left if you want to join.

I ordered on Wednesday and it was here bright and early on Friday. As always, it came with a lovely hand written note and wrapped beautifully with ribbon and tissue paper, but this time…Julie slipped in a little something special into the package – and after you see what you will know just how well Julie knows my tastes!

Some gorgeous La Dee Da!!! I already have a project in mind for these lovelies and I am so excited about them! Thank you Julie!

I also got a wonderful squishy from Fat Quarter Shop.

Some Kona Modern Quilts for Robert Kaufman! It is a half yard bundle in the Berry Colorway. On Monday night I whipped up a quilt using this line and I will be showing you a tutorial for it before the end of the month. The quilt took me 3 hours start to finish (including designing it in EQ7).  If you follow me on Twitter, I did post a picture up there on Monday night, if you want a sneak peak it is in my images.

You would think with all the wonderful squishies that I wouldn’t feel the need to go out and buy even MORE fabric, HAHAHA! You don’t know me very well if you actually thought that! My local quilt shop, Ruby Street Quiltworks, is doing $2.00 fat quarters every Friday during the summer, with Lemonade and Cookies! Here is my latest haul:

I don’t know any of the lines but I just couldn’t leave any of them behind either! I have no projects in mind…kind of figures!  Something will get made eventually, in the meantime they will be in my stash and I can ogle over them whenever I want.

If you haven’t already, make sure you check out the QAL that Jenna from SewHappyGeek and I are co-hosting, Sew Intertwined. It is going to be so much fun!

    If the truth be told, I’m sure that most of us have tucked a parcel under our arm, into a grocery bag, or into our nice, large purse, and scampered toward our sewing room as fast as we can go! LOL Nice fabrics!
