This cute quilt reminds me of chocolate for Valentine's Day. You can see they have nice displays.
This is just a few of the fabric delights awaiting you at Gracie Lou's. They have the best trim selection, too. Unfortunately the picture I took of the trim section did not turn out but they have everything from rick rack and pom poms to Scandinavian type ribbon. If you are making a little girl's skirt, the trim would be such a nice touch.
I did make some tiny purchases at Gracie Lou's - just 3 fat quarters and a yard of this Anna Griffin unique print. I had not seen this anywhere before. It is polka dots with a modern twist I think. Very appealing.
They had some novelty fabrics and it was hard to choose between these Henry Glass fabrics and some owls but I went for the birds and the Paris scene above. Both are so darling.
I couldn't resist this classic orange gingham. I'm really into orange lately. I am going to make one of my appliqued teapots out of this. I was pretty proud of myself for my self control. Natalie got a few really cute pieces and she can post about that next Friday while I'm at the Bryce Canyon Retreat.
I had a lot of questions about my stash of rick rack from yesterday. I purchased all of these at Kiefers.com over time. Most of them I was able to get for 10 cents a yard. They have gone up in price but buying in bulk is still he way to go. If you need rick rack you might consider buying a roll and splitting it with some friends. Eileen noticed that the cocoa color in the middle was what I used for my tree branches in "In the Leavy Treetops" quilt.
It is supposed to snow here tomorrow. I hope not but we do have some sun streaming in my window today. Nice weekend to all.
