Sunday Stash and CWBQ!

Goodness me - chalk and cheese! Let's talk about the above - I love birdies and this fabric is 'starling' by Alexander Henry. The blue is by Lecien and the lilac/green by Kaffe! I do have an idea to put these fabrics to use.


Now, the above - exciting news about this! Lizzie from A House in the Country has developed a new blog and you must check it out - http://thecivilwarbridequilt.blogspot.com/ - The Civil War Bride Quilt!
It would be lovely to have Joiners and Visitors, please pop over and read all about it - the blog is beautifully presented by Lizzie and I hope in time to come you will get a lot of enjoyment from it! I hope to be able to help Lizzie by promoting interest in history, applique and repro fabrics and would love your input!
Maybe I had better visit my sewing machine today - so many little projects I want to do!
Happy Weekend!
