it came .. it came ..

i couldn't help but share this, fooey to the laptop and it's intended ban on my sharing! i bought this gorgeous FQ pack from quilters biz about 2 weeks ago and when i saw it in the post today, i squealed with joy, my kids are now totally convinced i'm a looney!!!!

oh clair you would love this fabric, it's so bright and colourful and awesome to touch, ok, i'll admit, i feel like a little kid with a $1 whose just been told all lollies are 1c each, but what can i say, i have 19, yes that's right 19 fq's, 1 is the panel which i will make into a wall hanging for their room!
it's all in the machine, swishing around, waiting to be hung, dried, ironed and admired for a little longer before the cutting begins .. what to do with it tho, i'm unsure of it all atm so i think i'll just stare at it for a little while longer, let the boys chose the colours they like the most, xavier - 6.5yr, loves bright oranges, yellows the most while george - 4.5yr, loves the darker blues the most so it'll be interesting!

No wonder you are excited and I am so happy they came when they did :)Nothing like some good fabric to take your mind off other things and to lift your spirits for the fun part of making something out of them all. Happy sewing Denni :)
