This is the yarn that I have been using lately:
This is the kid's disappearing nine-patch that we made kits of for the store, and so I took it in there on Tuesday to display as the sample. It has some pretty bright fabrics, but I liked how it turned out.
Then, I had the other end of it left over, and a bunch of odd scraps, so I decided to start sewing them all together in a "decide as you go" kind of thing:
Oh, you may notice the "Monet" colored fabrics there as well. I sewed that nine-patch quilt from them last week, and just thought I'd mention that the top Is finished, in case you might have thought I had abandoned it-- not so! Although it does need to be quilted now. Hmm. I quilted 3 this week and will have 3 more to quilt when I finish the scrap quilt. Maybe I'll use it as the back of the other one. That'll kill 2 birds with one stone. So to speak. I would never kill birds. Not with stones or any other method. I love birds.
Oh, I popped into the store to see the new fabrics and there were no Christmas fabrics there after all! Instead we got about 25 batiks (about half of what we've been waiting for), the new Nancy Halvorson/ Art to Heart line: Garden song, which is lovely, and has a book that features the fabrics. Very Pretty.
Then we got the new French General group called "Rural Jardin", I think, which again has those gorgeous reds, with "oyster" and some nice blues this time.
We also got some other stuff as well! I'll drop by there later today to refresh my memory. Have a great day!
