Santa's Naughty List!!



See this list? It's Santa's "Naughty" list and I think I'm now on it ... cos I was a WEE bit naughty yesterday!! If I told you that Marian at Quilters' Angel has been having a three-day, 20% off fabric sale that ends today, can you guess HOW I've been naughty?! Bet you can!!


I've been eyeing off the "Oh Cherry Oh" charm square packs since they appeared at Quilters' Angel, and drooled over Nat's collection of them on her blog a few posts back, so when I walked in yesterday and saw the layer cake ... what can I say? It was love at first bite ... I mean SIGHT! Tee! Hee! Hee! Then, whilst wandering around Marian's Aladdin's Treasure Cave of quilting goodies, I came back to another range I've been drooling over for a while ...


Now, I know I'm usually a green girl, but I'm thinkin' these yummy blues will make a great quilt for the day bed in my sewing room - when we paint the walls a cornflower blue! I bought a little piece of the pattern on the bottom left when I played in Brisbane last week - what I call my "don't know what I'll do with it, but it sure is pretty!' amount - but stocked up enough this time to make a quilt. In fact, what you see here is really two quilts - the fabrics just don't know it yet! Tee! Hee! Hee! I'm thinking of designing a few small cherry-themed stitcheries to intersperse with the "Oh Cherry Oh" fabrics, but will have to see what inspiration strikes at the time. As for the blue, I think I want to do a fairly basic pieced quilt (has to be basic, cos that describes my patchwork skills!!) that isn't too fussy and lets the fabrics to the shining. I've seen lots of these type of quilts on my bloggy buddy, Peg's, blog, so I may have to pick her brains!!

However ... these yummy fabrics will have to go into the stash for the moment while I put the finishing editing touches on my bear for Australian Bear Creations and then tackle the Christmas list. SIGH!! I hate being a responsible grown up!! Mind you, there are times where my mother would debate whether I AM one! Tee! Hee! Hee! Whatever you're doing, I hope you're enjoying your weekend. I'm now off to trace pattern pieces, scan, edit ......!! Til next time - Bear Hugs!

CHEERS!

Hi Kris,
to quote a very clever lady: Tee!Hee!Hee! I'm sure Santa will close his eyes in front of such gorgeousness that came along with the little naughtiness ;o)
Really, yummy fabrics - I couldn't have resisted either...AND you already have some projects for them in mind!
Hugs, Julia

Well Kris, there is naughty and then there is really naughty and I think Santa only wants to know about the really naughty little girls. I don't think you qualify for his 'Naughty List'.....unless of course you are holding out on us and there is more fabric hidden that followed you home again!!!!
Hugs,
Kerryanne
