The End of a Spending Spree
I've been eying these fabrics for MONTHS and decided to just buy some already! And they are even more gorgeous in person. Thanks to Down Shadow Lane and Whipstitch Fabrics on Etsy.com, I've got enough polka dots to keep me busy for a while... not to mention my favorite - The Orange Duck Stripe! Ok, the Full Moon Polka Dot (from Amy Butler) is ALSO one of my favorites, as I have it in almost every colorway. They just go with everything - don't you agree?
We went to a cookout on Saturday night and the homeowner (a coworker of mine) had these amazingly gorgeous Hydrangea bushes in pink and purple. They were atleast 4ft tall, and full of these glorious blooms. At the end of the evening I was able to relieve him of 5 blooms and they now adorn my kitchen and bathroom. Just thought I'd share. Fresh flowers (of any kind!) are another one of those little things that make me happy, especially when they're homegrown from a friend. Just wanted to share these beauties with you!
This, I promise, will be the last post for a while with stacks of fabric... QUILTS will be coming, along with a laptop sleeve, and maybe even a bag or two. Yipeee!!!
