Some Cool Stuff in the Works

I took Friday off so I coud have an EXTRA day to this three day weekend to spend doing some housework and yes, even SEWING! Well, yesterday, I slept late (LOVED THAT!), did a load of laundry, called my mother in law (fellow Crafty Girl) and decided to head over to the shipping and receiving department of the Crafty Girls Workshop to take a look at our newest merchandise shipment. OK, so the S&R dept is actually Regina’s house, but that didn’t matter to the UPS guy. I packed up my sewing machine, several honey bun rolls and headed over there. OH DROOL! We got in some BRAND NEW fabric!! Yes, it’s new and yes, it’s exciting, should I let you see it? Oh, OK.

One fat quarter bundle (be still my heart!!) of Mill House Inn from Joanna Figueroa. (Hopefully more of this to come a little later) And six, yes, six of these…

Can you tell how beautiful it is? We also got a set of six honey buns of the NEW Simple Abundance by Bonnie and Camille, a mother/daughter team of fabric and pattern designers. This is their second line and it’s JUST as beautiful (if not more) than their first line Cotton Blossoms. So without further ado, here is a picture of the honey bun.

I just noticed that Camille has a really nice new pattern out that uses a Simple Abundance layer cake. Unfortunately, we are feeling rather lucky to even have gotten any of the Simple Abundance line at all since we were told it was too late to order it when we placed our first order, BUT if you hop over to Camille’s site and see that pattern and think it looks like something you’d like to make with a different layer cake, hop back here and let me know so I can get it on order ASAP.  In the mean time, I’m going to go and drool over the new honey buns, no, I’m just kidding but Regina OK’d it for me to take one of each and see what fabulousness I could create out of them for samples! Yipee! Oh, and lest I forget the second part of my post, I decided to join a Quilt Along! It’s at a great new blog I found by Quilting Dad, named John. In fact, he was a guest tute writer on Moda Bakeshop. And the Quilt Along is for a Wonky Log Cabin, which I have totally been DYING to make, so here’s my chance. I just hope that I can catch up in the next two days. So I guess that’s it. I hope this wasn’t too much of a chatty post. Happy stitches.

P.S. Check back tomorrow, I’ll be posting pictures of at least two of the items I’ve already made with some honey bun strips!
