Fabulous Fabric Finds

You know how I love my alliteration!  I hit Joann’s after the day job on Friday {with a list} and I was very good.  Well, except for two remnants; and they would have been a sin not to buy.  I’ll show you them below.  Fabric was on the list for a project I have in mind for my soon-to-be granddaughter.

I’m not going to tell you what I’m making with these supplies ~ it’s a surprise.  It’s not a quilt; but feel free to guess!

I found these pretty fabrics in the remnant bin.

I love the brown, bronze and gold in this fabric.  I’ve decided to make napkins out of it.  Especially since I seem to be lacking in that area {as evidenced by my tablescape posts}.

It looks good against placemats and a runner I have for my dining table, as well as my brown and white Country Living dishes that I got from Kmart {thanks to Manuela}!  I also found this blue and brown toile!  I don’t think I’ve seen this color combination before, so I had to get it.

This is just over a yard and I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it. 

Very proud of myself on this trip to Joann’s ~  I didn’t even go near the home decor/floral/basket side of the store!

Oh, I love those fabrics. Sometimes I just want to buy fabric even though I don't sew often. I can't wait to see what you're making for the baby. Maybe, bibs? I'm expecting a grandson on May 9th and a granddaughter on May 18th. I can't wait.

Love the polka dot flannel! All of the fabric stores close to us closed. I so miss being able to pop in and be inspired!

I envy the grand-daughter! I can't even get my girls too marry, too independent!
I wanted to drop a note that I'm giving you rave reviews tomorrow at SP&C! I'm so excited to be doing this, there are just soo many cute things out there it is hard to choose just a few! I'm featuring your laundry magnet board, but I have the feeling there will be others in the future!

You are so going to love being a grandmother!! It's your first, right? You know they are going to be wonderful, but when you touch their soft skin and smell their sweet smell, your heart just melts!

Can't wait to see what you are making.

You are such a good BCH Shop customer...thanks!
