Fabrics and a giveaway from me!

* Comments Closed*

So, I have been on a tiny fabric binge. :) (pics in a second) And 'cause I love you all who read my blog and share nice thoughts with me, I am going to share some of my fabric with you. I told you there was some new fabrics available at one of my LQS's. BUT they were taking a fair lot of it to the Dallas quilt show, where I just knew it would disappear, never to be seen again.You should have seen me standing in front of the fat quarter basket gnawing on my sunglasses trying to justify buying all of them. (I didn't.)
From Life's a Hoot I got the cutie owls, some dots, and some stripes, and from Vintage Groove the awesome pink curlicues. (I am scared of actually using stripes but these were too yummy to pass up.) I did wish they had an orange one. I think it would finish the set off nicely.

These are for the vintage sheet quilts. I am making 4 doll sized quilts; one for each child. Blue with stars for the boys, pink with flowers for the girls. 
 I am using this doll quilt as a jumping off point. It belonged to my husband's sister. Either her mom or grandmother made it. She didn't want it so I grabbed it. My littlest one loves it.

 Here are my cute new fabrics that I have no idea what to do with. :) Just had to have them.

And last but not least, here are fabrics for YOU! All you have to do is be a follower of this blog and leave me a comment telling me what you had for breakfast (I had oatmeal...chocolate chip cookies. Recipe tomorrow!). Easy peasy! 
One entry per follower please! 

Have a great day!

  1. I was healthy and had scrambled eggs. Altho your chocolate chip oatmeal cookies sounds like you beat me in taste ;)

  2. I didn't have anything, HA! I am still in bed flipping through blog after blog after blog! I am obsessed.... I know! Ekk!

  3. I didn't have enough time to have cereal this morning so I picked up an Egg McMuffin meal from McDonald's on my way in to work! (I'm becoming addicted...they are so good!)

  4. Those fabrics are darling! I haven't eaten. We are moving and nothing in the apartment appeals to me. :)

  5. Cute fabrics! Well, can't say as I really had breakfast unless you count the coffee loaded with creamer and hot chocolate mix... and the piece of carmel I plopped into my mouth a minute ago.. I'm not much of a breakfast eater. I leave too early in the morning for my stomach to be "awake." LOL!

    Have a blessed day,

  6. I'm a follower and I had Cinnamon Crunch Cereal! Mmmm!

  7. I had mango yogurt and my usual giant cup of coffee. But your breakfast sounds better! : ) Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. Gorgeous fabrics! Loving the dots. I didn't have any breakfast unless you count a cup of coffee lol.

  9. I had a toasted blueberry bagel with cream cheese. :) I don't blame you for wanting that fabric. :) Thank you for such a great giveaway!

  10. Ooohh, polka dots and stripes.. you got my attention!

    For breakfast I had oatmeal, with cinnamon, touch of brown sugar, and a handful of dried cranberries on top. Oh and a cup of hazelnut coffee.

  11. I had 1 cup of Special K Fruit and Yogurt cereal, with 1 cup of 1% milk. Exciting! (I measure out my cereal every morning, otherwise I end up pouring half a box!

  12. Gorgeous fabrics, I just found your blog from MichelleW's blog

  13. I am a regular follower of your wonderful blog. This morning I had a half of grapefruit, a bowl of multi-grain Cheerios and a cup of coffee. Pretty much the same thing I have every morning but swapped out a glass of orange juice for the grapefruit for a change today. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your great giveaway! I love the fabrics!!

  14. I love those owls. I had an English muffin for breakfast today.
    You could always make a cute purse with the fabrics you bought.

  15. Oh, what adorable fabrics! I'm a follower!

    And this morning I had oatmeal with brown sugar and maple syrup for breakfast. Little Z had oatmeal with strawberries and strawberry sauce and milk. :)

  16. I am totally a follower! But I was bad today and didn't have any breakfast.
