A Bit Of French Naughtiness!!


OOH! LA! LA!! No ... not THAT sort of French naughtiness!!! What were you thinking?!?! :0) This is a very innocent sort of French naughtiness ... really! :0)

You see ... I happened to pop into Quilters Angel (as you know I'm prone to do!! Tee! Hee! Hee!) and what should I see but the GORGEOUS new range of fabrics being unpacked ... "Rouenerries Deux". It was love at first sight! :0) Oh how I wanted to buy a metre of each ... but the play money would NOT reach that far ... SIGH!!!! Must win lotto somewhere along the track! :0) So ... I got busy with my sketchbook and pencil ...


... sketched out a new quilt design ... measured ... calculated ... calculated again ... scratched my head ... rubbed out ... calculated again ... did I mention that numbers and I really don't get along! :0) But finally, I worked out what I needed to make my new design and then I went ...

SHOPPING!!!!

I drooled over all of the fabrics, laid them out beside each other, swapped, changed, rearranged until I had my finalists ...

YUMMY!!! Can you blame me for wanting to bring these DELICIOUS fabrics home with me?! I'd love to tell you what I've been stitching this week, but I'm WAY too busy fondling my new fabricky friends! Tee! Hee! Hee! If you want to play with some of these yummy fabrics, you should give Marion a call ... I dare you to stop at just ONE! :0)

I hope your week is going well and that you, too, are enjoying some fabricky fun of some sort. Are you adding to your OPAM list? Or are you working on some longer-term WISPs? I'm looking forward to seeing some pics!! :0) Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!!

CHEERS!
KRIS

PS. Have you heard the exciting news from my blogging buddy the gorgeous Kerryanne over at Shabby Art Boutique? She has given her website a shabby French boutique makeover and it is trey magnifique!! :0) Pop over for a visit ... but make a cuppa first cos you'll spend ages looking at all the pretties! Tee! Hee! Hee!

Ooh la la! Whew! When I first saw the title I thought your blog had taken an (ahem) interesting turn. I love the new fabrics! That sketchbook is cute too! Can't wait to see what the fabrics become!

I loved Un, and Deux looks set to be just as gorgeous. It doesn't look as if you held back too much!

Great fabrics. I love French General and have exercised major control in the shops, or I'd have all of it! (Wait, that's not a bad thing....)
