I have been absolutely blown away by the response to my Licorice Allsorts quilt.
I did promise at the end of the last post to show you the beautiful fabric I received in the mail the other day. I have been doing so well this year trying to have a fabric diet (not buying any new fabric and using up my stash instead)....until I saw this....!
Good Folks which I simply adore, so when I saw this new range of Little Folks, I knew it wouldn't be long before I caved in and bought some. I must say, this fabric is absolutely divine. I can't stop touching it, it is so silky smooth and gorgeous. Being voile instead of the usual quilting cotton, it is a little dearer to purchase, so I bought the full range in fat quarters (instead of half yards) from Banberry Place.
Fabricworm. I cannot wait to cut into it (although it does look so nice sitting on my shelf all neatly folded!). I'm thinking maybe a snowball quilt for these little beauties. If you are interested in finding out a bit more about voile, Anna Marie did a fabulous info post here.
Now, to get to the title of this post, we are off again...to Anglesea for a 5 day getaway. Very excited to have some time off work and get away from the phone and spend some time with great friends. Lots of surfing (by the boys), walking, talking (by the girls), eating, coffee drinking, some stitching, some chocolate (it is nearly Easter after all!!). I may have a few pics to show when we return next Wednesday. Til then, have a wonderful weekend. xo
