As for sewing for myself, it just has not been in the cards this week. Not enough hours in the day, are there? I have been getting some wonderful new fabrics in from my designer fabric swap group, including some great Heather Ross fabrics to add to that coin quilt I am planning for myself. I also was able to ship out some fabulous items for me fellow swappers... Here is a photo of just a few of them. Hope you love them, ladies!

I love the Twilight series. Yes, it is drawn out and over dramatic, but I still like it. I love Jacob, but Edward is my favorite. I might have to change my mind after seeing this.... you have to check this out.
I am anxiously awaiting my new IKEA catalog. I could spend hours (and do) browsing through the lovely pages. I ordered it almost two weeks ago, so hopefully it will be here soon! If you haven't requested yours yet, you can do that here.
I have been sewing, sewing, sewing the last few days. Remember that photos of the super cute Amy Schimler Owls I posted a little while back? It makes really cute quilts. I will be posting 6 or so new travel quilts this weekend.
Okay, that is enough randomness for now. :)

I haven't made a coin quilt yet, and I am in love with this one. I love the graduated colors and how it showcases so many beautiful fabrics. The one pictured is actually a tablecloth quilt, but I am planning on making a throw size. I have many many rare Heather Ross prints like those featured, but I do not plan on using nearly as many. I want to feature only my favorites. I am going to start cutting the fabric this week. After I finish up a couple orders, of course. :)

Onto my world of fabric and sewing.... I just love this world, in case you haven't noticed. I absolutely adore the beauty of fabric, and I love spending time at my sewing machine. I've been involved in a wonderful fabric swap group that has been so much fun. Check out the button on the left if you'd like to join our group on Flickr. If you are a fan of designer fabric, Heather Ross or Denyse Schmidt in particular, you'd love this.What am I sewing these days? I am currently working on a Love a Tree quilt for a dear customer. I am so thrilled to be making another one of these rag quilts, this fabric is just gorgeous. I am also working on a travel quilt featuring the same fabrics. It should be up in shop early on in the week.

shop-y note, I posted three new rag quilts yesterday. I really love all three, but my favorite has to be the Grumpy Owls. I can't get enough of them, and I also just happened to throw in some green from Denyse Schmidt's Katie Jump Rope line... And if you don't know by now, she is one of my favorite designers. :)

I am a big bookworm, and my dream job is to be a school librarian. Really. I am a certified K-6 teacher with plans on getting my master's degree in reading. Someday, when my kids are all in school, I would like to do that (while running a sucessful etsy shop, of course). I bet you didn't know that.
Last night I watched Stranger Than Fiction for about the 100th time. Have you seen it? It is about a man named Harold Crick (Will Ferrell) who is stuck in a real-life book. Big surprise that I love that storyline, isn't it? Go figure. Nevertheless, it is my absolute favorite. Check it out:
And last but not least, I ordered some new fabric today! Don't you love these owls? I've got some big quilt plans for these cuties.
Okay. That is it for now.
