Gathering In!

good morning!
i have read
that there is a time for everything under heaven.
well thank goodness for that,
'cos i have had nearly a full year of using up my fabric stash
to the point of not really being able to make much
as the fabrics there are a bit disjointed...not much of the 'this goes with that' going on.
i've made cushions and pillowcases,
totes and tiny totes,
stuffed hearts and even a little dog
even a few curtains!
a girl has to build again
gather in more fabric loveliness to create again...
 from top to bottom...right to left these are:

backyard baby -  ant maze, windy days & lotsa dots

sew stitchy - redwork stitched bird & glass hexagons

children at play - balloon & school gingham

nicey jane - picnic bouquet & pocketbook

gypsy caravan - turkish paisley & deco dots

i tend to buy 'from the heart'
so i can see quite a few 'little girl' & 'baby' fabrics..
maybe a couple of totes...who knows?

these are from 'the fat quarter shop' & 'hawthorne threads',
my two favourite online shops.

i'm sure i'll be needing more very soon,
more grown up designs and basics,
as i still haven't filled the gaps...
do you ever?

thankfully life is looking sunnier this morning;
it's amazing what a good night's sleep can do... & prayer.
we ended up having pancakes for dinner last night...
you are going to laugh, all those of you who only eat them for dessert!
i had to test the new queen no sugar maple flavoured syrup...
sorry 'queen'.
a little lacking in flavour.
next time i think a little of the real maple sugar included...
would be a better option.
it was worth a try and is better than dry pancakes
so i give them that.
the pancake mix by the pancake parlour didn't let me down though!

have a marvellous saturday...
