Fab Fabric Friday From Friends

23 comments
Hi for Friday. It has been kind of an up and down week. Some of the family has been sick and the overdue baby hasn't presented herself yet.
I have some fabulous friends. I say that all the time. They do so much for me and I don't deserve it. This fabric above is from Sandi. Love the Christmas fabric. I will so enjoy the red dots and the Christmas village is perfect for me. Did I show this fabric before? (Yes, I am losing my mind.) Thanks Sandi.
Today when I got home from work I had a little package waiting for me from Washington. It had my friend Nan's address on it. She's such a thoughtful friend. She brought me some treats from Houston Quilt Market. She found a booth with some vintage and japanese fabric and thought of me. What a great pal!
This vintage needle book was included. Apparently they were quite worried about rusty needles back then because they tout this as something wonderful. I love the vintage art work. The needles are indeed sharp and rust free!
These two little fabric gems were in the package. They are perfect and so "me". Nan has great taste and I mean that literally. She's a quilter and a chef.
I bought 2 fat quarters recently at my little quilt shop just 4 minutes from my house called Just Sew. My friend Sandra works there and it was fun to catch up with her and browse the fabric.
Now for some fabric from stash. I love these pears in a mid century reproduction print. I can think of lots of good uses for this print. Think clutch.
This red is a thick cotton, not really a quilting weight. I think it would make a really cute tote bag.
I haven't used this lovely floral yet. It is so sweet but can't seem to cut into it for some reason. The scale has to be "just right" for a project I guess.

I realllly hope we get a baby this weekend. But if not she'll be induced next week. Happy Weekend all.

I've been wondering how it's going -- thought maybe you'd been busy with a new little babe! Love all the fabrics - as always!

Sandi said...

I am finding some moments to read my favorite blogs and there at the top of your post was the cutest cottage fabric!....and then I thought, oh, my gosh, that's the fabric I sent you. LOL! Duh! I am missing my mind these days. :-) I hope that baby comes soon. The waiting in the last days is oh, so hard!! Maybe you'll have news of the new arrival on Monday! I'll be saying prayers that all goes well!

Such gorgeous fabrics as always Nanette! Whenever I see a new stack of your wonderful fabrics I picture you opening the door to your sewing room and having to push the door hard and squeeeeeze through to get through all of the piles of fabric! :) And oh my, the kettles in the kitchen are amazing. I vow to make that one. I need it. It will make my life complete. x
