I'm not sure putting a coat of chocolate brown paint on the front door would be considered a creative endeavor, but it's one of the things I've been doing anyway. And there was good mail. Lots of lovely mail that kept trickling in throughout the week, that made me giddy when I finally had a chance to sit down and go through it all. My kitty craft order was everything I hoped for. Patchwork World (in Tricolor: red, white & blue) turned out to be fantastic. Every page is a feast for the eyes and makes me drool with delight every time I flip through it.
I finally got some of those darling Korean fabrics and that woven numbers twill tape. The other tape has ladybugs on it. The site is down temporarily because Amy Lee is moving to the UK, good news for crafters there. But you can still check out some fun things on the site like her pattern room with two pages of very cool things to see and make.
Then there was my order from Cia's Palette. More wonderful tiny prints, always so beautifully packaged. I can't decide which one I like best because they're all so sweet. The red mushrooms are high on the list though. I already used the floral print to back one of three shadow boxes I put together for the kitchen. (More about that later in the week after I get everything hung.) I also have in mind to make a new quilt after I finish up some old projects, and most of these fabrics will be incorporated in it somehow. With all I have on the table (literally!) not sure when I will actually begin this, but I'll have everything I need to get that started when the moment is right. Probably sometime in the fall when it's cooler and leaving the iron on won't be a problem. If you're looking for old roses, romantic vintage-style florals, check out Jennifer's website Shabby Fabrics. She carries an amazing collection, and everything I've purchased so far has been top-notch, plus she ships fast.
