KAPOW i say!

A week and a half! Where the heck have I been? Around, that's where I've been. Working, working and sewing a little. Baby Bella is on the machine right now. Quilting done and ready for binding.
Pictures are dark for a reason, lots of night quilting.


I also finished the pincushions. Some of these have made their way to my Creative Pay It Forward friends. I was really happy with the way they turned out, especially Barb's big B!and Jennifer's J. For my quilty friends I also sent some Wonder Clips along. Love those things!

I am staring to get x and + blocks in the mail from my Stash Bee mates. How great is it to get wee packages in the mail with delicious blocks! I shall have to start thinking about a layout...

I have to share some fabric happiness with you. Just because they make me so happy!How about a little Denyse Schmidt Shelburne Falls in the Maple Colorway? I have a confession. I often wondered what the big deal was about DS fabric. But when you see it in person KAPOW! Seriously people KABOOM! the colors are so rich you wonder where they have been all your life (of course these pics do not do them justice). I have a little "Keep Calm" project planned for these babies.

And, how about a little Carnaby Street in Rad Love. Not sure what I am going to make with this yet, but I can tell you it will be for me.

What are the favorites in your stash these days?

I'm linking up today at Freshly Pieced.
Happy Wednesday!


  1. It's interesting that you say that about DS fabrics - I sometimes feel the same way! There's something about the prints that sometimes makes me go Eh, whatever but then you see them in person or in a quilt and they just seem completely perfect in a way you'd never think they would be!

    I don't have any favourites in my stash at the moment - I haven't bought anything new in ages. I'm trying to behave myself and quit buying so much when I finish so little :D (I did buy some pretty awesome cross-weaves a while ago that I look at and pet every so often, though. So maybe that's my current favourite.)

    1. I really wasn't convinced about DS fabircs until about four months ago when I saw Flea Market Fancy in person, then I wanted to roll around in it :) I have been trying to be good about buying fabric as well, but have been falling short. So today is a new day. No more purchases! We can do it :)
