It’s like Christmas!

How much do you love getting packages in the post! It’s the best, especially when you know there is fabric all nestled inside that padded envelope. Oooo ahhhh…

I’ll unwrap it slowly for you…

And then that lovely moment when you fully unwrap…

Ta da, I finally broke down and got both Bernstein Bears lines in layer cakes. I have no idea what I’ll do with them yet but I’m thinking of adding it in with other modern fabric as to not make it too “Bernstein Beary” if that makes sense. Maybe an eye spy quilt?

It was like Christmas this week and not because of the silly cold weather but because my other Dan Stiles fabric from Birch fabrics arrived the next day. It was super on sale at Fabric Worm so I couldn’t resist. I think some of it will go nicely with his new Safari Soirée line…

I also decided to get the Piper line from Stella to do a quilt for John’s parents for Christmas. I’m just going to do simple squares I think. I’ve made them a few things but this is the year to be daughter in-law of the year!…

I also picked up the Washi dress pattern, who knows when I’ll make that, as well as these bobbin genie washers that I’ve been hearing great things about. You can leave them in under your bobbin and are supposed to help it from jumping all over and making bird’s nest. Especially used when free motion quilting but my machine seems to be prone to bobbin mess so I think I’ll leave it in all the time. My poor machine, I hope it’s ok at the sewing machine doctor!…
