Hi there!  I spent the morning wondering around blogs and cleaning up the house, and a few other must do chores around the house.  I have to say I love my “next” button!  I get overwhelmed when I go to my reader, but when I hit “next” it just takes me where there’s a new post.  No need to be overwhelmed!

Over the weekend, we went down to Salt Lake as a family, just to dink around somewhere other than our house.  I’m sure Joe was done listening to my sewing machine too!  We went in and out of little shops at Trolley Square and happened to come across Tabula Rasa.  Upscale paper/stationary store, not my usual shop but the window displays were beautiful and inviting.  We spent all of 2 minutes in there before the kids were done, I soaked up the colors and prints, I also found a book, and told Joe it looked interesting.  He asked me where and was ready to buy it for me – love him!

It’s not a brand new book (printed in 2005) but Cath Kidston’s in print, is a great resource for incorporating fabric into all areas of my home, not just my quilts.
Cath Kidston’s In Print: Brilliant Ideas for Using Vintage Fabrics in Your Home

And now I’m thinking I need to work on a girly quilt – all the florals in the book are beautiful!  Look at the framed fabric –

Or the chair made new again with fabric –

Maybe this is the reason for all the primping around the house today….

Where else have you used fabric in your home?


**Also, a few of you asked, and so, I spent some time yesterday making pdf’s available of all the quilt-along posts.  I have them in the shop for $1.00 for each week.  Mostly because of the time involved in it all.  I was going to lump posts together, but it was going to be too big.  I will add week 8 after I post about sashing, and finishing the quilt top next week.

Come back tomorrow, I have a giveaway planned!
