the winner of this pretty fabric stack is Heather Nevits, entry 39. I've emailed you, Heather!
For the rest of us purple-hungry people, Sew Fresh Fabrics will be stocked in High Society sometime this coming week. They're offering free shipping on $35+ orders through the end of December, so keep that in mind too.
I am back at the sewing machine today after a 3 day break. Really, 3 days with no sewing! How did I manage that? Well, we had some dear childhood friends and their three beautiful children come stay with us for Thanksgiving. The days were filled with happy children and the nights with Settlers of Catan (a fairly addictive board game).

Then yesterday I couldn't help but scour fabric stores online for Black Friday deals. I bought some Shot Cotton for a shower curtain I'm planning and restocked my stash of Garden Party by Anna Maria Horner. I'm still working on an order of Dr. Seuss fabrics for Liam's bed quilt. Although we totally avoid characters in our home, I'm thinking that Cat in the Hat may be a worthy exception. Do you like the Seuss collection? I really appreciate the basic stripes and dots shown above.

Maybe a log cabin style quilt with large centers to showcase the picture prints? Liam has funky furniture from Ikea (the malmut line) that always has reminded me of Dr. Seuss. Add that to sweet memories of my Daddy reading Dr. Seuss and I guess this fabric line had me from the get go. I was planning on a values quilt for Liam's bed, but this seams much more fun for him, you know? Of course, he loves it! Let me know if you have any suggestions for quilt designs.
