Unplanned Break...New Fabrics & other Goodies

I took an unplanned blogging break, but I'm still working in the studio and getting ready for some Summer and Fall shows... Stay tuned for some show updates on Simply June...

There are a lot of new fabrics and supplies arriving in the studio...a happy spool of baker's twine & scalloped fabric shears. (Can I tell you how far and wide I have searched for these? I think Fiskars must have stopped producing them and I wasn't able to find another source...with some help I finally bought a pair from a fairly obscure sewing supplier.) Check out the cute scalloped edge on the polka dotty oil cloth!

I am so charmed by fair tales right now and couldn't resist these cute Little Red Riding hood fabrics and tape... the matching designs were actually purchased from two different sources... check out Talk to the Wind on Etsy when you get a chance. She is located in Japan and a great supplier of fabrics and Japanese craft books... she even sent some cute goodies along with my order!

Oh, and how can one resist hedgehogs? This cute Matryoshka print is my favorite and I might have to squirrel a little away for myself...

Promise I'll be back soon! Happy Thursday and a Happy Birthday to Lisa over at Artsy Fartsy!
