I can't say that phrase without humming the song in my head...... I have been fortunate enough to have fallen in love a number of times in my life. There are different types of love but all make your heart skip that extra beat.
I fell in love with all 4 of my babies the minute they were born :-
I fell in love with all 4 of my grandchilren the first time I cradled them in my arms :-
I fell in love with my gorgeous husband the first time we embraced :-
And last night I experienced a bit of fabric love with the delivery of this :-
and this :-
Not the same sort of love as the great loves of my life as previosuly mentioned but my heart did skip just a few beats I am sure. I welcomed into my home A bundle of Fig Tree Butterscotch and Rose for my new BOM to be released in November. A Bundle of Bonnie & Camille's "Ruby" for a new quilt design and a bundle of "Ruby" in Flannel "Just Because".
I have to admit to buying bundles of pre-packaged fabric and being unable to bring myself to open them for some time - They look so nice all bundle up and neatly wrapped. This was the first time I had ever dismantled a bundle instantly.
I have had my new BOM Quilt drawn up for some time and have been waiting for just the right fabric to come along so I wasted no time in cutting up the fat quarters.
And started sewing blocks together
You know that you have fallen in love when you can't stop putting blocks together - I am afraid that I have fallen head over heels in love with Butterscotch & Rose.
Did you notice that my mojo has returned? On Monday I went looking for him and dismantled my studio in the process. Would you believe that he was hiding under my huge pile of UFO's? I suppose he thought he would never be found there !!
Well in the process it was decided that I should move out of my tiny spare bedroom and perform a take over of our unused formal dining room.
So with help from Hubby, Sam & Amy we spent the day moving me in.
The room is much bigger and looks out over our front garden.
I still have quite a bit to move in but the essentials are there
There is room for a work table in the centre of the room when I have friends over to play
And room for some of the bolts I am currently using
So as you can see I have been quite busy this week and am really looking forward to the weekend so that I can finish moving in.
And maybe I will get some more time to play.
