Pretty Things

 (Isn't this cute!) (Lia and I were at JoAnnes and both had to have it)

I love to look at pretty things, some things I have in my house are just because I like looking at them, they make me happy.  Years ago when I was experiencing a bump in the road I started quilting. I didn't have alot of money to spend on material so I'd find one piece of material I really liked and then bought cheap material to go with it.  I quit when things were better and now just do it when the mood hits me....which is hardly ever! I'm still working on making each of the children banners for their rooms and I've loved buying pretty material for them, some is so cute I hate to part with it....Here are a few new pieces I've gotten.

I don't have plans for this yet, just loved all the colors, and natureishness(I think I invented a word)
 of it.

Calling all owl lovers! This is going in Annika and Cozy's room.

Isn't this just beautiful, it's a flannel and I think I'll make some baby presents
out of it.

Fairies! Loved the colors and sweetness. No plans for this yet either.

Isn't the blue lovely!

Love the whimsicalness of the one on the left!


  1. I am amazed at the material now days....when I go shopping with Marie I just keep saying oh my gosh oh my gosh ....I LOVE THEM ALL !! Take care Linda

  2. Beautiful fabrics. I particularly like the owls, and the babushka doll fabrics. I may have to get sewing again!

  3. Natureishness and Whimsicalness; words I shall be using all the time from now-on!

  4. I know how you feel. I love beautiful textiles and save scraps of material for that someday when I might do something with them.
