Four F's.....

Hehe..no, not grades! Hubby got his usual A and College guy, mostly A's (darned physics!!)


My first....
My first Amy Butler
Amy Butler Fabric (seen lower, cut up with pattern) and most favorite in the Ginger Bliss Collection. The tote in the back I recently acquired via a Ravelry destash! Woot!

You may have seen these projects, gosh almost 3 yrs ago this week! No, they are not mine but were a custom order for a friend. I sent her the leftovers and I keep seeing them pop up in a lot of her sewing too! Darn it! I wish they would reprint some of the older collections.

I still collect her fabrics and my recent scrub caps are from two of her other collections. Why do I fall in love with fabrics that are often discontinued as soon as they are printed?

Fun Fabrics! Ok, that's 2 F's but humor me!
Orla Kiely
Orla Kiely...yeah, another discontined fabric! I scored this tablecloth which will become new needlecases and maybe a box bag for me, and the rest for the shop. So if you are loving this fabric like I do...place your order. I have 6 weeks until vacation!!! Well, I should say 5 weeks that I could sew, you know I'll need that last one to get ready...oh sorry, back on topic!
Fun Ikea Fabric More fun from Ikea. Purchased on my trip in March and destined to be curtains for my craft room!

Finally!!
New fun...
A smaller camera for me! I love it, so small and compact and plummy! I had A's old one, but the son needed it for college. In fact, the first picture in this post is from this. I have a bit of a learning curve though.

Final F.... This is now......
Ribby Shell
This! A freeing frog I must say. For so many reasons...
Frogging...
I started this in July of 2007 and was put away for fall knitting. (you guys know I'm not the fastest knitter now! ;) Attempted to try to finish in Spring of 08, but had to hibernate it while I waited to find out what breast cancer surgery I was going to have. (which took us into September) Fast forward to this spring and I picked it up and thought, geesh, in 2 yrs I haven't gotten any farther...it's not meant to be this project. The yarn is fabulous (Dale Svale) and not cheap, so I have decided it will become Hey Teach one day in the future! Now to figure out which swatch is what size...eek!

Well that's it for now! Send me some good vibes about 3pm Tuesday the 12th! It's been quite the year and I'm a bit nervous!

Whoa! I had no idea Ikea had fabrics! Clearly, I must now learn to sew. The good vibes I send you will be extra strong now that I'm full of Ikea excitement.

I carry that bag all the time. And I still have some of the fabric left. Not sure how, but I do. It's the magic everlasting fabric. You'll love it as a bag - it's my favorite ever.

I love that Orla tablecloth. I should have scored one for fabric, but I do have a stash of the dishtowels to use.

Everything is gonna be fine! I just know it! No worries!

Karen said...

Hmmm, is it bad that when I saw the title of your post I wasn't thinking grades? I was thinking swear words, or the same swear word over and over!! LOL

Great F's you've got. Your new camera is the exact same one I got for Christmas. Hope you love it as much as I do!!

Bezzie said...

Such fun frabrics! (Yes, we add the "r" in my family!)


I like your camera...I've been thinking about buying one for me for on the go, but it's not really a "need" you know?

MsKnottyKnits said...

Oh that's good stuff right there!! I'm still waiting on my bag from Acornbud (insert whine here).

I love the curtain fabric!! Isn't Ikea the best?

Sending lots of good vibes!

Love the fabrics. I've been itching to sew lately, so I wonder if I'm picking it up by internet osmosis from you. :D But need to send my m-i-l's machine to get it serviced first. (I don't think she's ever had it done.)

Was that the beginning of a Ribby Pulli? Here's to a better future for your pretty blue yarn.
