Guess what arrived yesterday.
My Spoonflower fabrics!!
It took every ounce of my will not to race to my sewing machine and start working on them right away. I love pre-printed fabric where you just cut out the image and stitch it up. It's as close to instant craft gratification as you can get.
BUT. . .
I can't start any new embroidery projects until the Earth Day hoop is done. So that means one yard of the fabric I bought is off limits (it's dolls that have tattoos on them and you can embroider the tattoos which I'm dieing to do).
Since I got a wee mouth on Timothy (aka corduroy cat--going to show him off tomorrow) I'm ready to take on a new sewing project. So tonight (after a bit of household chores which include my daily exercise routine) I'm diving into that other yard of fabric. So many cute little edibles on there. . .it'll be worth re-threading my machine (with white thread) so I can get busy.
Tomorrow: Showing off Timothy (coduroy cat) and it's back to painting class (with first progress photos to follow).
