Hope everyone is having a great start to the week! It's been mostly errands and computer work over here, but I'm hoping to get to the sewing machine tomorrow!

I did sew a bit this weekend, I worked on my Bloom quilt (pattern by Aneela Hoey!)!  I'm getting so excited seeing it come together. I picked out a nice solid gray for the background today!

Have you seen Amber's fabulous typewriter pouches featuring Melody Miller's Ruby Star Rising prints? They're so beyond cute and I finally had to snatch one up! This one matches my purse perfectly, what's a girl to do! Amber is having a sale in her shop through the 15th, go check it out!

So, I took this photo in the hope that it will properly embarrass me! The fabric has been flying in from all directions! What can I say? At least, I have been supporting my local shops and online shops equally, the stack on the left is online and the right is local, so that's a good thing, right?! :)

Fabrics found Online from: Pink Castle Fabrics, Fresh Squeezed Fabrics, The Intrepid Thread, Bloomerie Fabrics.
Local (to Madison, WI) from: The Sewcial Lounge, Stitcher's Crossing, Mill House Quilts.

  3. that pink bloom quilt is adorable. cant wait to see finished product :)

  4. I love your bloom pieces. That's going to look great with a grey background. Yea for new fabric, peanut butter cookies, and that adorable pouch. Oh yeah and kisses to George bunny.

  5. I just love love love how your bloom is blooming :)
    You can't get better than piles of new fabric!!

  6. I have been contemplating making a 'Bloom' quilt and think that between yours and Aneela's, I am convinced. Now what colours to use from the stash?

  7. Hmm..those cookies look great. Bookmarking that recipe so I can make them with Aubry. :)

  8. your bloom quilt is going to be totally amazing. mmm, those cookies look so good right now. :)

  9. mmmmm.... cookies... they are off the menu for me right now. i will just imagine how delicious they taste!

  10. ooh, I'll have to try Suzy's recipe! Thanks for the link! Your bloom will be lovely, no question. I love that you'll use a gray background. Don't feel bad about the stash enhancements; I'm right there with you!

  11. thanks for the link love :-) I agree with everyone else - those pb cookies look so yummy!! Love the dresdens!!

  12. Oh good grief, that bloom quilt is gonna be AMAZING! I love how it is coming together!

  13. Oh grey will be perfect as the background for your bloom! I would love to start one of these but I really think that one more project on the go would really tip me into a "straw that broke the camel's back" situation, so I'll just live vicariously through you! :)

  14. typewriter on newsprint - perfect! Love the lt. pink on darker pink blooms!

  15. Love the pink flowers, they're so beautiful :)
