Praise !


The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

I'm on a pink kick !

I don't know,..........I guess it's because I've been asked to make something simply beautiful and quietly tasteful............AND THAT AIN'T ME !

Ha !

Simple-minded, I might have been accused of once or twice, but quiet, NEVER !


These are what I have in mind for it.........the flannel back is a stronger pink than I expected.  But the light pink for the top is exactly what I had in mind.
Still, my quilt-nerve is going through a period of rejection, and I just had to have these today.  They're not quite as strong in color as this photo indicates.  (As I post my own photos, I'm starting to understand why I'm having so much trouble buying online.)
But, of course, that's been such a big part of it, too, ...... I received an online order and the colors of some of the fabrics were SO DIFFERENT from what I thought I was buying, that when I got the chance to see some beautiful fabric today, in just the shades that I was hungry for, I had to OWN THEM.

 But I was very good !  I only spent the money that I earned appliqueing that little dino block, although I have to admit that I was OVERPAID. 
Here are a few other fabrics that I've bought lately.  I've been on a grey kick too, but this grey has a strong hint of taupe running through it's blood.  It doesn't fit with other fabrics that I had intended to pair it with, but that's actually a good thing.  It goes beautifully with the "Swanky" turnover triangles that my daughter bought me for Christmas, so I'll probably whip up something small out of all of that just to have something 'purty to pet'.  It's a great neutral, background-type print, don't you think.  And I adore the blue in the middle. 

Now, this fabric, I cannot stand........I don't know what to do with it.  It's a one yard piece........I didn't realize at the time that I got it that has free returns.  This time I know, and will be returning these pinks

Not a good representation of their color.....once again !
 that I don't like.


  1. I love the paisley print and the damask print. Sometimes I think I'm on a pink kick, but then it turns out that what I really wanted was a lovely, light, light orchid.--Apparently it's not one of this year's popular colors, but it makes *my* heart sing! (I have a lot more trouble doing intense colors--maybe because right now my life is too intense.)

  2. It is pretty fortunate that does take returns, you sure can't say that about many places that sell fabric! I LOVE the flannel piece you have for the backing. It might be brighter than you imagined but at least it will be on the back. I do look at the same prints I am thinking about buying at many different sites and I like to see it in USE (for scale of print). I am usually not surprised when I receive a piece but there are times the colors are just not what I thought they would be. It is kind of fun to be asked to sew beyond your comfort level, especially if someone else is paying for the fabric. ;)

  3. love the header photo! and all the eye candy!

    this is why I don't buy online unless I've seen and touched it in person! too many ways to be disappointed! but I just love what you have here!

  4. I hear ya, its so hard to find modern fabrics locally, but it is so so hard to be 100% sure of the colors when purchasing online, unless you've seen them in person before. I'm sure you'll come up with something fabulous as usual though!


Thanks for stopping by !
