Hi there, How was your weekend?
Alain finally came home. We've settled into a normal routine again. It feels really nice.
Today I have been scouring fabric.com for some new fabrics. I chickened out when it finally came time to order, I worry so much about extra duty costs and the cost of shipping to Canada. I really envy those of you who can take advantage of free US shipping. Let me know if you are ordering anything from fabric.com in the near future okay, I might just have you order me some fabric too!
I am going to Cambridge to see my parents and sister in a few weeks. There is a really great fabric store there. I am really looking forward to visiting the store and stocking up on some different fabrics. It feels like fabricland has the same old stuff lately. That's no fun.
I have started working on the I-Spy Quilt I am making for Mary's birthday. Although I had 200 I-Spy squares to choose from, I had a hard time finding the necessary 88 squares required for the quilt. I really recommend signing up for a few I-Spy Swaps before you start on your first quilt of this kind. I am anxiously awaiting swap squares from Utah and California (400 more squares altogether!). The ones from California should be here any day now.
These are a few of my favourite fabrics from fabric.com (click the image to see it bigger!)
I'm really into food, fruits, veggies, cookies, candy, etc. I love the fabric in the bottom left corner. It's a pregnancy cravings fabirc that has pickles and chocolate and radishes and ice cream. That would be fun to use in an I-Spy Quilt. If you want to see a bigger version of these fabrics, check fabric.com. You can enter the code that goes with the image, for example, the pregnancy cravings fabric is DC-681. A quick search should take you right to that fabric. You can also see fabrics from the same line on the page. I wish we had a site like this in Canada. Does anyone know of one?
