I seem to be all about two things these days -- polka dots and felt. I love them both, it's true!! This colorful bundle quickly caught my eye! It's the 1/2 yd bundle of Kaffe Fassett's Spots from Moona Fabrics. Aren't the colors marvelous!! It took me two days to decide between the 23 fat quarter or the 12 print 1/2yd cut bundle. When I am not sure what I am going to use a fabric for, but I really, really want it, I always stash half yard cuts. That just works out best for me, being the crazy pillow making lady that I am. Fat quarters are just never enough. With that said, it was pretty difficult for me to pass up getting all those gorgeous colors that the fat quarter bundle offers. How about you, what do you prefer?
My felt arrived yesterday, as well! I ordered 16 new colors to add to those I already have and I am so excited! Since so many of you have been asking -- I purchase my felt wholesale, but if you're looking for purchasing smaller quantities, you can find this wool blend felt here, along with a pure wool felt and a bamboo option. The blend with a higher wool percentage works wonderful for sewing! I will be sending a very colorful stack, including a sheet of each color from my stash, to the winner of this weekend's giveaway for the Fab Felt workshop!!
I snapped this photo last night shortly after dark. I had truly forgotten how early we lose the light this time of year. It's funny how that effects us bloggers, isn't it? I'm going to have to make sure I take all my pictures much earlier in the day for the next few months.
This is the wall I look at while I sew. There's a lot going on here, huh? Everything is held up by a teeny tiny sewing pin. I like to have my wips where I can see them. There is a door to the right that my quilts in progress drape over and a dress form in front of that, that wears my aprons, scarves, and birthday crowns.
I has just pinned this polka dot, felt wip to the wall before I stepped back and decided I should take a photo. I forget to do that pretty often. I usually share the fabrics and then the finished item, not much in between. I plan to work on that, too!
And finally, I have a new Christmas pillow (number three) in the works. For this one I am combining quilting a favorite Christmas print of mine, with polka dot fabrics, and a bit of red piping.
I'll have more of this one, along with hopefully a quick tutorial for my Felt Garland Holiday Pillow, to share tomorrow!
