I fell off the wagon - hard!

The fabric wagon, that is.
I'm talking fabric acquisition.

I've been a very, very bad girl...
And I had been so good the entire 7 month so far this year!

The fabric that made me fall off the wagon
was a line that I knew was coming out early Summer, 
so I thought I'd purposefully missed it.
But when a friend showed her recent fabric purchase on her blog,
I knew I was in trouble. (Thanks, Rosemary!)

It just took a quick, online search, and
there it was...
the whole collection...
I really did it - all 15 pieces of the collection...
Off the Fabric Wagon, just like that.
Did you DJ girls hear that all the way up in Michigan, ? :)

Snowbird has come to my house!

I ordered this beautiful collection 
from Wanda at Old South Fabrics, Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
and was SO pleased with the service!  
I immediately received an order confirmation and thank you by email. 
The next day I had a shipping confirmation and
within a couple of days my order arrived! 
The fabric was very nicely packaged.
It came double-wrapped, 
first in this beautiful tulle presentation, then in plastic.
and there was a very nice thank-you note attached.
Included was a copy of my order with fabric swatch pictures.
AND to top it off?  They offer free shipping (for an over $75 order - like that would be a problem).
I will certainly be ordering from Old South Fabrics again!
so pretty! and I can't wait to start another project!! :)
And then, because I was on a roll, 
KABOOM, again!
This time from the Fabric Shack in Waynesville, Ohio:
some reproductions
some text-y fabrics
Piecemakers by Kathy Schmitz/Moda
So, you ask, are there particular plans for these new fabric acquisitions?
Nope. Not really.  
It all started because I need to make a wedding quilt gift and the chosen colors were neutrals and blues.  
But I don't know if I can cut into any of these gorgeous fabrics anytime soon! :)

here I am,
climbing back up on the wagon.
I will be good.
I will be good.
Shop only my stash.
I WILL be good.

Until the next time. :)


  1. I love all of your fabrics! The Snowbird line is beautiful. Now I'll have to go find some :) and I've never been on the wagon. lol
    t in tx

  2. You fell off the wagon but you ended up in quilt heaven. Those Snowbird fabrics are wonderful. Just noticed on fb that my favorite quilt shop here in Norway got them. So I guess (I know) i will buy from this line at the big quilt festival here in Norway in september. And you have to start using the new fabric!!! it is now they are beautiful. In a couple of years you probably will wonder why you bought them. So start cutting!!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
