Fabric Friday - Fabric and Gifts from Friends

36 comments
Last Saturday was lunch with the girls at "Food For Thought" in Draper, Utah. A mom and pop place with a delicious (healthyish) from scratch menu.
It was really fun to see everyone and catch up. Left to right are Rae Ann, Nedra, Kim and Lori.
We really have a guilty pleasure habit going on where we exchange gifts when we meet together. It is fun and I always come away feeling kind of giddy and silly with pleasure from the fun and treats. Here are some of our prizes lined up on the table. These are from Rae Ann.
Rae Ann picked out a personal teacup for each of us with fabric to match the teacup and then fabric tied in a bow on top of her bag (and chocolate). Rae Ann is so thoughtful.
Lori brought us this amazing new fabric from Riley Blake Designs. She grabbed it hot off the bolt from Jina herself and Riley Blake and brought us each these fat eighth packs in all the color ways.
Oh my it is just so lovely. I love the colors and prints in all the colors. Lori thought it would be perfect for my April Showers quilt. I totally agree. I want to make another one now!
Here are the pinks and reds all lined up. This really is my very favorite lines from Riley Blake.
A goodie bag from Nedra. It got a little squished getting all my presents into the car.
Inside were Easter Treats. Can you believe Easter is really only 2 weeks away. I'm glad Nedra got me thinking about Easter. Cute stuff.
This is a little charm package from Kim with a crochet clip for hair or pin. I love the red and black dot.
What could be more perfect from Kim than reds? Love them. Red and white is so classic and clean looking. Thanks to my 4 friends. I love my treats and it was so fun being with you for lunch.
When I left "Food for Thought" I browsed their gift area and bought a little clear toy candy (remember those?) and a hotpad. The mushroom will be cute hanging in my kitchen.
Here is baby Allison. She's growing so fast. Look at her cute cute top.
I thought I'd show the fabric in her shirt up close. It is from Old Navy. The fabric is so darling that I wanted to steal her little shirt. I wish I could get yardage of this but I couldn't even find the top at their website. Look at the detail. Too bad the little shirt is so small or I might be stealing it.

Happy Fabric Friday everyone.

Where do I start, such lovely gifts, you lucky dog, you! And it looks like you got another gift awhile back in that sweet little girl, cute nails. Her shirt is indeed, cute.

Stephanie said...

Sweet treats. I just ordered some Rainy Days and Mondays. Love it. Oh my goodness what a cute little shirt. Why don't they make then in adult sizes?

Carrie P. said...

wow, looks like Christmas all over again. Some very nice goodies you got.
Oh yes, that is very cute fabric on your cutie pie GD.

Sherri said...

Sweet gifts...and the sweetest baby too! Maybe when she grows out of her little outfit you could have it!

Looks to me like you ladies know how to have a good time! What great gifties! That little top is SO SWEET! I was expecting you to say that you'd made it for that cute girl. It's perfect!

Nedra said...

It was so fun being with you! Thank you again for taking time in your busy schedule. Thank you for the cupcake. By the way, I gave Judi the one from you, and she ate it in the car on the way to Star Valley. Yum!
Now I am getting so excited for our St. G. retreat which will be coming soon!

pratima said...

What a fun day! Your presents are all very cute :)
Oh, that mushroom hot pad is a lovely find...
Allison is adorable in her cute top :o)

Jackie said...

You girls just know how to have way too much fun!! You are so thoughtful of one another too. What a great day. Little Allison is just too precious. They change all too quickly at that age. She'll be married before you know it!

Brandie said...

That looks like fun. What great friends. And baby Allison is very cute!

Muddling Through said...

What a great bunch of friends! And how much fun to bring and to receive something that you know you and your friends will like. And good food, too - perfection!

Kim D. said...

Oh, it looks like you ladies had such fun and what great gifties you received. Love the tea cups and fabrics to match. Check out my pincushion made in a tea cup on my previous post. I hope to post a tutorial when I make my next one in a month or so. They are so fun. I love the umbrella fabric, I'm trying to stay on this fabric diet, but it isn't working. LOL Love the little top your granddaughter is wearing, how sweet.

Sainath Perka said...

Wow that's really good bunch of gifts. Very nice.

Just look at those umbrellas. You know, this envy thing goes both ways, dear.

Kim Walus said...

What a fun time we had. Thank you for the goodies. Your grandaughter sure is growing up and she's so adorable. I think you need her shirt when she grows out of it. You could make her one of your dress blocks and then save what's left in your stash.

Momoo said...

Very nice presents. The fabrics look like they will fit perfectly in your stash.
Allison is really growing up...soooo cute :)

Pat said...

I remember those clear candies...they were always called barley candies when I was younger. You surely have a great time with those gals. I'm just not sure how you fit any FOOD on the table with all those great gifts you exchange with each other. LOL

Emily said...

Hey - some of your fabric I bought to sew Brielle an Easter Dress (well, have Nani sew while I help). Anyway - I love it!!!

Julia said...

wow, looks like Christmas there.. gorgeous fabrics, what fun!
Allison is such a beautiful baby..before you know it she will be walking!

SueWis said...

What fun, and look at all that stuff! And sweet little Allison. So precious! And I do remember those candies in all sorts of shapes.

Jane's Fabrics and Quilts said...

Oh you girls have such fun! Love the goodies, I just ordered some of the new Riley Blake Line for my store, I think it is darling, but not as darling as your little one. She is getting bigger and cuter by the day!

Thimbleanna said...

How wonderful Nanette! I looks like you all had a fabulous day. Love that new Riley Blake fabric!

Cathi said...

What lovely gifts! That umbrella fabric is fantastic!

Rumi said...

Looks like a fun time was had by all. Such thoughtful gifts too.
Baby Allison is a gem and I, too, adore her shirt!

Lori Holt said...

Hi Nanette...
oh yes it was a fun time as usual! I just wish the weather would have been a little nicer.
Thank you again for the "sweet" cupcake!
BTW...I brought you that fabric when it really was hot off the press..from Riley Blake that is! Jina personally cut them just for me to give to you....she is such a sweetie, but you already know that.
Have a great rest of the weekend,
Lori

I love catching up with you, Nanette! So much eye candy - and the best? Why little Miss Allison - she is just so cute and getting so big!
Cheers!

sewtakeahike said...

how fun Nanette! I love that fabric on Allison's shirt too. Just darling!

SandyQuilts said...

too adorable.

Yes teacups and teapots are non-existent I know. My DD#2 has selected that theme for her baby due in July. I've had the old universe looking.

You (and I'm thinking of doing it) go to http://www.spoonflower.com and make your own fabric.

Red Geranium Cottage said...

What a fun fun day. Love all the gifties.
That fabric with the little birds is adorable. What line is that from Nanette? It's soooo cute.

happy zombie said...

Friends, fabric, (healthyish) food and fun! What an amazing day. I'm swooning over your wonderful day!
