Warm Fuzzies

Last week I used Amanda's tutorial to create this drawstring bag. I LOVE it. Love it so much that I have the fabric ready to make another. Run on over to Amanda's blog and stitch one up for yourself! I plan to use mine to hold embroidery projects.

It's a great way to showcase some of your favorite fabrics. Plus, what a great, practical bag. You could use it to hold knitting, crochet, embroidery, your kindle or Ipad....the possibilities are endless!

Last Saturday my mom and I went to a local quilt show. It was my first quilt show believe it or not. I can't believe I haven't gone to one before. I have definitely been missing out! Aside from all the beautiful quilts on display, I was over the moon with the vendors and their fabric choices. Our local quilt store closed last year so now the majority of my fabric buying is online. To see the pretty fabrics in person was a real treat for me! So much so that I went a little overboard with my fabric buying. But.I.Couldn't.Help.It.

Eeep! Far, Far Away!!

I bought an assortment of 1/2 yard cuts. I have started to realize that 1/2 yard cuts are the most practical for the projects I sew. I am loving this one on top...I mean cute animals combined with French writing. Double eeeep!

I was so, SO happy to see some selections from Lizzy House. YAY!

Who could resist poodles! I know, I may be partial. ;)

I'll end with a couple pictures of quilts. Sorry for the quality. They were taken on my phone.

What's giving you warm fuzzies lately?

Awe, so much cute fabric! I always feel tempted to buy the ones I like, but then again, I can't sew :(, haha.
