Sewing, Blogging, Shopping

The other day I read on a blog a little something like this… If I’m sewing, I’m not blogging and if I’m blogging, I’m not sewing! Unfortunately, I don’t remember who said it…


It’s so true! And I’ve been sewing! And traveling! And shopping online! So sorry, I was quiet this week! But I wanted to check in!  I also have had a big deadline at work and as spur of the moment as plane travel across the country is, that’s what I’m doing! Since I was traveling home to Bama, this week, this fabric above jumped out at me. I think most ‘Bamians think of one thing when they see houndstooth. Especially red and black and white houndstooth… Alabama Football! I love this remix version by Ann Kelle for Kaufman.


Oh, and shopping for fabric! I was sewing, and if you follow me on IG you already know this, but I was sewing the world’s largest paper piecing pattern and I ran out of fabric. So, I headed back to to order more. But if you order fabric, you have to order enough for free shipping right? So then I started looking around….


And I found these! None of which I need, but I love! Since I got my original quilt fabric from, that’s where I went back to for the extra supply… I love Creative Thursday’s work, so I went to see if they still had any of her CHristmas fabric. They didn’t, but I fell in love with the top three fabrics above! Top left, Just for Fun Whimsical Rabbit, Top Middle, Just for Fun Ballons and top right Ric Rac Rabbits. And we love Jeti’s!!! My friend Debbie over at A Quilter’s Table just used this fantastic Betty the Jeti Fabric in a pillow swap and I’m in love! I love the green she used, but on this particular site they only have it with the yellow background. But doesn’t it go perfectly with the Riley Blake Good Natured Timber wood grain in yellow that I want too?? And I love this super hero girl fabric by Anne Kelle. And I love it just because it’s all girls. No boys!


And what do you see with this fabric??? Obviously, besides the monsters… PJ’s? I see pj pants!!


And I really don’t like to do Christmas before Thanksgiving, but I couldn’t help finding more Christmas fabric that I don’t need! You can kinda see my color scheme here, huh! The top left is totally my colors with the teal and green Snowmen by Riley Blake. My step mom has a thing for penguins, that has kinda rubbed off on me, which is why I love the top right Silly Chilly Penguin fabric. The middle left is another Anne Kelle owl print that I love! I have it in teal, but I’m going to try to get the last yard of blue they have! And here’s my friend Debbie’s influence again, the middle right polka dot fabric also by Riley Blake. My son went through a Grinch phase as a toddler, so he’s a big part of our Christmas now. I love this Grinch panel! I want to make some Christmas pillows out of it!

So what fabric are you buying????

Thanks for letting me check in! I’m on vacation without my sewing machine, so I’m hoping to get caught up on the blogging side and share some more of the fun projects I’ve been working on!!! Yea! Stay tuned!

Featured on Stitch Steals and a Giveaway!

I’m so excited!! Yes, that warmth you feel is my blushing… I’m being featured again today!

Sorry, the regularly scheduled Friday Link Love has been interrupted and will pick back up next Friday…

Today I’m being featured over on the Stitch Steals blog.

Do you know about Stitch Steals??? I’m in love…. Stitch Steals is a deal of the day type site, but just for us sewing types! Everyday there is a new deal, a lot of fabric, some books and some really cool tools! And typically the products are 50% off, sometimes more, but rarely less.

I signed up for their alerts a little while back. And they have had some really awesome fabric, but I’ve never bit the bullet and bought anything. I’ve just been a lurker…

Until the other day. They had some great fabric that matched Christmas colors and I jumped on it…  Love the bright green and blues!

The service and speed with which I got my fabric was awesome! I also recently ordered something form another sale site (I won’t mention any names), but I had forgotten I had even ordered it by the time it got to me! And the fabric looked just as good in person as online. And great quality to boot! I’m sooo excited. Now I keep trying to convince myself that I need all the fabric that they are offering…

And then I thought, I should spread the word about this website and they graciously agreed to share a

$25.00 Dollar Gift Card to Stitch Steals

I’ve Got My Eyes on You…

sweet little fabric from Ikea!

I braved Ikea during the pre-Christmas shopping extraganza. Late at night to avoid the crowds… But I went a little too late and by the time we got to The fabric it was time to start checking out, so we had to move….

I know the faux bois trend is passing, but I’ve had a renewed interest in it lately. I need some for a quilt backing and a ‘wood’ castle door for a playhouse. I had decided to make my own until low and behold I found these…..

And being an architect, I’m drawn to anything with buildings… But I said, what would I ever make with this??

Um, the lining on this very cute pattern I got for my son! Of course, figured it out too late, after we left… The pattern is from Dear My Kids. Cute Things!

And my anything beachy loving Mom loved this awesome crab fabric!

I see another trip to Ikea in my near future…
