Flamingos and Maypoles






Fabric is arriving in the shop fast & furiously! This really cute line of flamingos - flamingos are not usually my thing - came in from Clothworks and they are obviously having some kind of a party! I took some home after checking it in and whipped out a table runner using one of Graywind Designs patterns - love those, they are so easy! - this one is called Four Across. This is the kind of fabric you look at and say to yourself, that's really cute but what the heck would I do with it? Hence the table runner! This will look great out on my deck this summer. We made up a bunch of kits and now I am thinking I should order more!

The entire line of April Cornell's latest fabrics just arrived too - all 40 some odd bolts of them! It's bright purples, yellows, greens and reds - very summery. We have it next to the Christmas fabric that arrived last week from Benartex! I haven't done a sample or managed to get all the Maypole line up on the website yet, I'm thinking it's going to be one of those lines that will sell by itself without a sample . . . ok, ok, I am HOPING it will sell without a sample!

I've been putzing around in my gardens this week. It's finally warm enough and dry enough to dig. I've been dividing and moving plants that should have been moved last fall. Some will go to the shop, but most will fill in bare spaces at home. Feels good to be out in the dirt again!

Till next time.
