{a fabric distraction}

When I heard Flea Market Fancy was being re-released I thought, "Yes! Now I can own some yardage of my favorite prints!"  So I saved my gift certificates to Hawthorne Threads from Christmas, and also saved my pennies... and last month came two packages.  One from Hawthorne Threads, and one from RicRak on Etsy. 
I'm not a huge fan of the entire Legacy collection, but I do adore these specific prints!  They'll fit well with the rest of my fabric stash, to be sure!

Another Wiksten Tank is in the works... and this top print called Little Folks by Anna Maria Horner should be perfect for such an item of clothing!  It will be my first go-around with voile (which is 100% cotton) and its rather thin and drapey... which should make the perfect tank top, right?  I know it will be slightly more trying to work with than quilting weight cotton - but I'm willing to wrangle it for the perfect summer top.  The bottom piece was on clearance and I couldn't resist... it's from the Metro Living collection... which is now down to one color-way, red!  I have very little of this shade of blue in my stash, so again.... I couldn't say no.

How is your week shaping up sewing wise?  
I've only been filling Etsy orders this week so far - no actual sewing or quilting to speak of but that's ok.  I don't mind - it gives me the cash to buy more fabric!  haHA!

I made a skirt out of the AMH voile and I love it! Hope you do, too!
