It's been a bit of a rough summer around here. My husband was laid off a few months ago. And as I've mentioned, my son is a terrible sleeper. I haven't slept more than 4 straight hours since his birth. Those of you who have dealt with a bad sleeper know it makes you slightly crazy. I've been quilting to keep myself sane and have some fun stuff to show in a while.
But, I had a bit of luck last week and won 6 yards of Denyse Schmidt Chicopee from Pink Chalk Fabrics. It came directly from Free Spirit Fabrics, and they send me 1 yard cuts of 6 fabrics!
As someone who generally buys 1/2 yard or fat quarters, I'm feeling overwhelmed with a whole yard! I'm thinking maybe some bags? What do you do with large cuts? Or am I the only one who doesn't buy full yards?
A few weeks ago my friend Susanne of 3 Beans Studio came to visit with her camera. She took some absolutely gorgeous photos of my baby and a few with me.
I mean seriously gorgeous right!? She's just relocated to the NY area. So if you want photos done, check out her site. She's amazing.
When she was here, she loved one of my quilts and I sold it to her cheaply as a thank you for the photography. I guess she felt it wasn't enough and this package of loveliness arrived on my doorstep from her!!!
Yup, that's Tula Pink's Birds and Bees! I totally thought I was going to miss out on this line because I'm on a fabric diet until hubby is back to work. I'm totally overwhelmed by her generosity. And feeling so lucky to have such a sweet friend. I definitely got the better end of the deal on this one. Amazing photos and gorgeous fabric. I'm a lucky girl.
