Echo {echo echo echo} + great news!

 I've admired Lotta Jansdotter for quite some time, ever since I first bought her Simple Sewing for Baby book a few years ago!  The fabric she used in the book was so fun and I've always wondered how to get my hands on something like that.  Well, Lotta has come out with her very first fabric collection and I'm smitten!  It's called Echo - and you will not be disappointed!
 I didn't purchase every print in the collection, but I got my favorites... in half yard cuts!
I figure I'll be able to make a good sized quilt and them some!  Thank you, last Sunday's craft show, for sponsoring this purchase.  haha

On to the good news!  
No, not THAT good news...

We finally have a new house!  We close in a couple of weeks and guess which room this is:

Well, obviously, its the dining room... but its going to be my sewing room!  ALL MINE!
Note the horrendous wallpaper - it will be on its way out not long after we have the keys.  I plan to do a soft grey in there to keep it light and bright, and so photos will be easier to take.  And this light fixture, if I'm lucky.

Congratulations on your new house and your new sewing room!! So exciting!! We moved a year ago and I got my very own sewing room too, so I feel your excitement! That light fixture is absolutely gorgeous!
