Playing catch-up

So many things to show you, yet so little time! We're heading out of town for the weekend and it will be great to spend some quality time together as a family. We didn't really take a summer vacation this year, so we're thrilled to get away for a few days.

You may have noticed that I've closed up the shop while I'm gone. You can expect it to re-open on Tuesday, Sept. 22.

Hallow-eenies, my newest fabric design in celebration of Halloween and time to hunt for the best costume, is being featured in the Spoonflower Fabric of the Week contest! Go HERE to vote for your favorites. There are some AMAZING designs this round!

And I just have to show you the BEAUTIFUL swap I received in the mail today. I've been watching the mailbox like a hawk recently, in anticipation of my Doll Quilt Swap surprise mini quilt's arrival. No quilt yet, but I had almost forgotten that I was expecting some fabric from Austria that I swapped with the lovely artist, Sardana of Sardana's Creations.

I was only expecting 3 fat quarters, and she sent all kinds of lovely, heart-felt goodies. Included in my parcel were also a darling hand-made zipper pouch, red/aqua/blue flowered trim, a mini note pad, and a beautifully hand-written note. Thank you for your kindness, Sardana! I look forward to keeping in touch and watching you create! You all can visit her flickr gallery for photos of all the hand-crafted lovliness Sardana is up to. She carves stamps, sews, quilts, must see!
