New Fabrics Update

Supporting local fabric stores is good, too! Recently I have acquired MORE fabrics for my stash, through Quilt Divas (Rockland) and On-Board Fabrics (Edgecomb) who are local AND have an online store also.
Hold onto your hats, here comes cuteness. I'm thinking of making some bookmarks (inspired by Erna's) with these two fabrics, as we are all readers around here, and they'd make good presents. These came from Joanie, that sweet friend and supporter of my new hobby.
Yes, little French idioms and tiny little graphics on this one:
Hedgehogs and little ladybugs and I don't need to say more, as you already know about my hedgie obsession:

A full day at home for me today, no driving, no work, no kids, and I have already done my school work. Next stop: sewing machine...Being at home alone always feels like a vacation to me.


  1. Adorable fabrics! Makes for some fun sewing. Enjoy this good vacation day of yours! XO...Ana

  2. Iris, this is so exciting! I think you have converted... to sewing from ACEO's? :) Lovely fabrics!!! The cherry blossom is so sweet and I think the hedghogs are adorable! Really looking forward to seeing these things sewn up! Hope the vacation day was delightful!

  3. Loving that French fabric! I haven't seen that one out there yet. I have some hedgehog fabric too and is just the cutest! Have fun making bookmarks! I did that for some gifts last year and they were very well received. check out my tutorial for these...

  4. What a lovely blog! I've enjoyed reading it. And I also really like these fabrics that you chose. The one with the wee french words is my favourite.
