Hi...I'm Karen and I'm a fabric-aholic :)

It was a good day yesterday indeed :)
Just look what the mailman brought me!
There is something magical
about a brand new piece of fabric.
So many possibilities!
Sometimes you just want to admire it,
hold it for a little while,
and never really use it for anything
because you're afraid you'll mess it up
and won't be able to get any more.....
or maybe that's just me?
I mentioned to you last week that I found a great online shop
called that is having an amazing sale!
Layer cakes as low as $16.75?
Charm packs as low as $4.25?
Jumbo rick rack .72 cents a yard?
Moda yardage as low as $3.44 a yard?
I know right?????
And Kelly, the owner is the sweetest person!!!

Everything in the store is on sale!
I may have ordered twice already......
I may have more in my online shopping cart right now......

How adorable are these snowmen?

Sorry...I bought the last of what she had... 

Besides admiring my new beauties yesterday, I did manage
to finish another basket liner for Evie's room.
I only have 1 left to cover
and I should finish it today.

For those of you who are playing along
you have until 10:00pm tonight to post your projects
for the chance to win the 1/2 yard Riley Blake fabric bundle
generously donated by Bratpacks Fabrics!

I'll post the winner here tomorrow!
Good luck and have fun sewing!!!!

  7. OH MY GOSH!! I love it I am a Fab-aholic too.
    I feel the same way. I sometimes just sit in my sewing room just looking at my BEAUTIFUL FABRIC.
    Its OK We are NOT CRAZY (I hope)

  8. Yes, I remember your tempting me with that shop! I was good...but it was hard! =) Love your fabrics. =)

  9. I'm a fabric-aholic, too!! I've been known to search high and low for an out of print fabric, buy a few yards and stash it in the back of all of the other fabrics so that I can pull it out and admire it knowing well that I wont dare use it! I love the basket liners, they are coming along beautifully. :-)
