I'm completed the blocks for "Love Blooms Here" (Parts 1 & 2) so this Sunday, I'm working on an old UFO. It's a table runner, and on each end is a basket of flowers. I've appliqued the flowers on one end this week, and today, I'll start on the other end.
For the first weekend in a long while (since Christmas I think!) we finally have had some decent weather, so Hubby and I decided to make a trip home to see some family. While we were there, I stopped at Baskins Fabrics to feed my need for fabric. I was delighted to find that they had three huge baskets full of baggies of fabrics at $1 each. Here's a small selection of a few I added to my stash.
Fleurs de lis, chandeliers, and chairs. I love these colours.
Ordinarily, I would never buy batiks, but I noticed right away that the print (below) were of Fiestaware, then I noticed coffee pots and mixers - and thought these were so unusual and delightful, I could find a place for them. Each piece is about 24" x 10, and I got doubles of some of the colourways.
This fabric below is very sweet. I might cover some notebooks and give them to other social workers I work with in the community.
