Fabulous Fabric Friday

There's nothing like coming home tired from work and finding a couple of packages of fabric on the front porch!  
I was instantly energized!

I knew the larger package would contain these lovely fabrics by David Butler (Curious Nature)

but I just couldn't imagine what Cindy (Live a Colorful Life) would be sending me!

A beautiful yard of Sis Boom fabric
 because she knows I love Jennifer Paganelli (and cool colors).  
Cindy -- Thank you so, so much!  I am touched that you would think of me, and I think you know that this fabric has found a good home.  It will be admired and petted until the day I cut into it for the perfect project.  I think I have one in mind already!

Last night I had the fun of shopping at Fabric Depot with Monica and Heather.  
One is crazy and the other is crazier.  I'll let you decide which is which.  
I decided to add some solids to my Swoon-along blocks.

And I couldn't stop myself from starting a collection of reds and whites for a Christmas quilt.
Heather teased me about buying too much fabric (what with Curious Nature on it's way to my house at that point), but it seemed to me like a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black, so I just ignored her.

 Don't expect to see this quilt started any time soon.   I'm going to do Christmas in July at a sewing retreat this summer with friends and I'm just getting an early start.  

With wishes, true and kind -- Joan
