Stacks and stacks

I am still drowning in sewing teeny tiny things and preparing new projects.  I had to get some Centre City whilst Annie was stocking up- I think this is going to be a super hot print!- Uptown Los Angeles.  It comes in a range of colour variations but this is my favourite.  I have two metres which is enough for a small size Tova.  It is paired with grey Quilter's linen and Mind's Eye in toast from Field Study- all available at Village Haberdashery.  I am making a phone and ear buds case set from these using the vintage dogs scrap that came from a flickr swap.  And then, when the dust has settled on all the other sewing going on here, I will be making a Feather Bed quilt for the sofa.
I am starting to plan my pillow talk swap- this is my first fabric pull- I am at the pondering stage where I hum and ha and think about what goes where, no commitment just yet.
And I know what I am doing with these but I can't tell yet, Liberty scraps from Jo and light linen for my Liberty scrap tutorial.  Justine is selling the Kaufmann Essex linens  in her new Simply Solids shop if you are looking for a similar look.  
Sorry things have been a little quiet, October is a busy month, normality will resume soon.

  2. Gorgeous fabric pictures! I want some :)

  3. Really like the way you put fabrics together ~ makes me want everything you've got! I especially like the Liberty Fabrics. I've got a little stash going ~ tho I don't know what I'll be doing with it. Looking forward to what you'll be doing with it!

  4. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in Creative Busy Bee Craft Inspirations, under the Page 3 post on Oct. 15, 2012. Thanks again.

  5. such pretty fabrics. can't wait to see what you make with all of this!

  6. I'm pretty sure I need some of that Los Angeles fabric--since that is where I was born. That's a good reason to get some fabric even when you are on a self-imposed "fabric diet," right??

  7. Quiet is good when you're trying to catch up on your reading ;o) All the fabric looks fun anyway :o)
