Home in the South




I arrived home to my house in the South on Wednesday, and have been busy finishing the pillows above.  I sewed them before I came, but I still had to handstitch the binding.



As a reward for finishing them yesterday, my parents watched my little ones today, so I could sneak off to a little fabric shop in the Atlanta area called Whipstitch.  Dana from MADE did a demo a couple weeks back at Whipstitch, so I knew that while I was in town I'd need to find my way to this shop.

While the store was very charming and had some great fabrics, nothing compares to Happy Quilt.  I got to go to Happy Quilt twice on my trip to S. Korea, but sometimes I wonder if I will ever return to that slice of heaven on earth!!!



Of course I couldn't leave empty handed, so I bought myself some Tina Givens (right) that I've seen and have longed to have in my stash.  I'm thinking it will be a good throw pillow fabric.  You know because I need some more throw pillows.  I also couldn't pass up the Joel Dewberry (left) fabric because I got two yards for $10, and that seemed like a screaming deal compared to other fabrics in the shop.  I also really like Joel Dewberry, but don't have anything of his stuff in my stash.  Now I do.  Happy day!

I'm not sure what's on the horizon for sewing from me in the next couple of weeks.  I'm on vacation at my mom's house for a little while.  Stay tuned, but please keep your expectations very, very low!
