New Fabric

Fabric.com had a great sale on some Westminster fabrics last week. I got some of all the Good Folks prints they had. I have been wanting some of this fabric for quite some time, so I was thrilled to see the sale. I just fell in love with it while reading Anna Maria Horner's book Seams to Me. I already have a quilt in mind for some of it, and I even sketched it out! I've never sat down to plan anything out quite like that before, but I think it will be helpful, since I know what I really want to do with it. I'm thinking Kona Coal will be the background fabric. Do you think that would match well?

Here is pretty much all of my Katie Jump Rope fabric cut up into strips. I sent the packages out for the bee yesterday. I had totally underestimated the time it would take to cut them all, and cut the white center strips, and seperate them out for 11 people, and cut the foundation paper, and package them up. I debated sending each person larger chuncks of fabric, and letting them cut, but I wanted to make these more enjoyable for the participants, and all that cutting can get tedious, so I just cut them myself. I hope everyone got a wide variety of strip widths, and I know everyone got almost every print. There were only a couple that didn't have quite enough for everyone, but they all got over 20 prints for sure. I can't wait to see what these ladies make!

There were two people who needed a break from the bee this month, so we found some replacements for them, and I sent each of them a Scentsy Bar in Paradise Punch for helping out. I know they both have warmers already, so I hope they like this scent. I'm pretty sure they haven't smelled it before, since it just came out last week!
