Fabric Friday: August 21

Weeks are flying by. It's Friday already again, and I can hardly believe it. We've been doing back to school prep this week, including back to school night and my oldest's kindergarten assessment. Which she passed with flying colors, of course! I just have to brag for a minute...she has been to preschool and was taught basic phonetics, but took that and taught herself to read! She is currently reading a Magic Tree House book. She's a smarty pants, but mostly I'm pleased that she loves to read.  She starts kindergarten on Thursday and is so excited! I'm happy for her.

I have been sewing, just not taking photos of my progress. I need to be better about that, but I've been so tired. Maybe I'll run in and take a bunch of progress shots in my sewing room this afternoon. Maybe.

I also got a fun order from Fat Quarter Shop. I had been stewing about a few prints I just HAD to have...and then their Robert Kaufman sale came up. Did you see that? Did you take advantage of it? I ordered a bolt of Kona white, and ended up paying somewhere around $4.75/yard...pretty darn good! I saw yesterday that someone used a Joann's 60% coupon to score a bolt, and she probably paid less, but I didn't know you could buy a whole bolt of Kona from Joann's without mail ordering...Can you? I don't know. In any case, I love shopping at Fat Quarter Shop, and I think $4.75 is a great price. Joann's charges around $9/yard for Kona, so it wouldn't have been much cheaper anyway.

In addition to the bolt (my first one!), I also got some Meadowbloom fabrics to make some skirts for my daughters, some Cotton and Steel, and a few others. And they are making an appearance here today!

From top to bottom: Mini Quatrefoil by Riley Blake, Dottie by Cotton and Steel, Honor Roll by Anna Maria Horner, Mormor by Lotta Jansdotter, Honeymoon by Cotton and Steel, Circle Dots by Riley Blake, Wonderland by MoMo, and Meadowbloom by April Rosenthal.

This bundle was inspired by the Honeymoon print by Cotton and Steel. I love it, and I wasn't sure what I would do with it, but had to buy it because it's just lovely.

Have a great weekend!
