More Fabric!

I hope everyone enjoyed Valentine's Day yesterday - I guess a lot would have spent time watching the exciting Winter Olympics!

Yes, I've been shopping again - how could I resist this glorious piece of Kokka linen/cotton that matches just perfectly with the background here, cotton/linen, also - I have plenty of that in my stash. Maybe a nice bag one day!

The Shaggy Fairy Quilt is started - oh, it should be so pretty - a lot of fun!

Fabrics for a new blankie for Byron - the littlies spent the weekend with me, and would you believe, it was all so busy we didn't even get to have a look at these - I'm not too sure about the brown - maybe a little too heavy - maybe I should have bought the blue in that design?
Happy week everyone!

Have lots of fun with the littlies.. I too think the brown is good but you look again, sometimes I go out of the room and when I come back in I take a quick look at it?? Silly I know!! I love Fairies.

Lizzie said...

Actually Lurline, I love the brown! I find that I gravitate quickly to blues and greens for my boys and have to make myself stop and think outside the window (so to speak!). Love the linen, adorable.

Lurline that purple fabric is fantastic.

Stephanie said...

Although I'm not a purple person that is a pretty shade and print. I think you should have bought all the colors in the Wheels line. :O)
