Well hello there! It’s been a while since I’ve had much craftiness to share, but I’m now officially on vacation from work for a couple of weeks, and I am crossing my fingers that the desire to hunker back down in the craft room returns with a vengeance. I’ve just not been feeling it lately for some reason. Anyway, a recent arrival in the mail has prompted me to get back on the quilting bandwagon in the upcoming days.
It’s an entire fat quarter pack of Denyse Schmidt’s Hope Valley line! I’ve never bought a fat quarter pack of any kind, so this is a first for me. I am always so unplanned about my fabric purchases, and I often find that by the time I get around to actually buying parts of a fabric line, it’s gone out of stock. As many of you fabric junkies know, once it’s out, it’s Out. That is, unless you feel like taking out a second mortgage on your home to give to that eBay seller who has jacked up the price of your favorite line months later. (I guess that’s like the equivalent of sports ticket scalpers, but instead, it’s fabric scalpers… Either way, they obviously plan their purchasing much better than I do!)
I think this is what causes the hoarding mentality, and I’ve totally fallen prey.
Anyway, Hope Valley is pretty, isn’t it? I think there’s some quilting in my future. The pink/orange colorway is my favorite! Which is your favorite?
