A little trip and some new fabric

I'm baaaaack! Okay, you might not have noticed I was gone, but we took a little get-away for Memorial Weekend and went to Blowing Rock, NC. What a beautiful little mountain town! It was great to meet up with some of our closest friends for a little R&R.
Little "T" had his first encounter with a live choo-choo....and we all discovered that they are frighteningly LOUD.


I was able to scout out a quilt shop in Boone, NC that carries some of my favorites and also some fabrics I hadn't seen before...

Have you seen the new Arcadia line by Moda? I was first drawn to it when I saw Barbara's quilts she made as new baby gifts for a friend. BEAUTIFUL.

I was a little giddy when I found my favorite red and white polkadots from Amy Butler...they've of course been discontinued and are getting harder to find. I also discovered one of my favorite prints by Kaffe Fasset, Aboriginal Dot, comes in red and aqua! CUTE!

I also ordered a few prints online that I can't find here. Anna Maria Horner's Good Folks Filigree in Chocolate...yummy...and Sweet by Moda, LOVE it.

Unfortunately, My sewing area has become ridiculous. Looks like I'll be cleaning the house this week and doing the "unpacking from a fun trip ritual". Stay tuned for more items in the shop!

I'm loving Arcadia. I'm trying to hold back purchasing some (tightening the purse strings on fabric)...but I think I may cave. It's really too pretty to pass up. And totally in my favourite colours.
