New fabric to play with!


A bright spot in the last 2 days was my parcel of fabric arriving from the States!! My SH is slightly concerned that I am becoming addicted to ordering online!! (he's blaming Tracey - Oz Country Quilting Mum) and I must admit it is a very easy way of doing it and lots of fun......Anyway as the photo shows it wasn't a huge parcel but I am happy with everything. A panel of 'Love Is', a piece from that same range, a pink paisley (for some obscure reason I am collecting paisleys at the moment!!) and two pieces of the 'crow and cherry' fabric (Debi Hubbs). I saw it on Kims blog and just had to have some of it so I guess she's to blame for it SH!! I must confess that while he was out at squash last night I did some browsing and have found a new range I just love.................'Cats Meow'. I have promised I will not order without first planning a project.............
Now an update on my Handsome Son! The upshot is that he has torn the tendons in his foot and has also broken a bone in his ankle so is in plaster and on crutches for 6 weeks! Not happy!! It was the first game of football for the season, hockey season starts this Saturday, he won't be able to play basketball or referee (a money spinner for him! ) or work at his part time job ! He will still be in plaster for his school dinner dance and for his school camp . Oh well it could always be worse, it is only his foot and he will have plenty of time to devote to his homework (wash my mouth out!). It is plastered in fire engine red and he will get back to school tomorrow. He is happy he won't have to walk to or from school for 6 weeks tho! I was hoping to post a photo but will have to get him in an obliging mood.

Oh Cats Meow ?!?!?!? We need a link to see. It sounds fabulous. Would love to check it out too.

I blame Tracey too for online ordering, I just did some the other day too. Shhhh don't tell her we're ganging up! ROFL.

As for the material you got, mmmmm love the one with the black birds. It looks so country chic.
