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!
