stumped

So I got these lovely fabrics the other day, but I’m not quite sure what to do with them! The chevron and the polka dot are from the Michael Miller “Glitz” collection, and the birds are by Violet Craft from their “Brambleberry” collection.  I originally purchased them thinking they would coordinate well together as little cosmetics bags, but now I think I should try something new.

Perhaps one of my cats have a great idea for me?

Or maybe my fellow sewing enthusiasts might care to share an idea? 🙂

Fabric shopping day!

I woke up to a grey, rainy day.  Normally, I’m pretty fearful of clouds and rain, but I was feeling pretty optimistic today because I got to go to the fabric store!  It wasn’t as overwhelming as my first shopping experience at Jo Ann’s (so, so many fabrics, aisles and aisles of them!!)  but there were still some fun, different fabrics I haven’t seen at other places yet.

I love how everything is organized by color!  And there were so many pretty floral patterns, though I didn’t pick those up.

You see, I’m trying to come up with projects I should start instead of doing what I keep doing, which is buying pretty fabrics and trying to come up with things to do with them.  I’ve started to accumulate quite the backlog of fabrics!

So I tried to stay practical…

Got my threads…

Then, I unwittingly selected a couple fabrics that matched up with the threads!  I wasn’t planning on it, I swear!

Aren’t they pretty together?

These are 440 yards each, if I remember correctly.  This is great for avoiding moments like this:

How many times has this happened to you?!
