Dear Heather Ross…

Can we be Best Friends??

Oh yes! It finally came! The coveted Heather Ross Studio Sale package!

Lots of Yumminess!

As for the prints, I hope to get them framed this weekend, although they are odd sizes so I may need to order custom framing. We shall see! I have decided I am going to hang them over my bed, the largest print centered over the four smaller prints!

I was very happy to get some FMF, I didn’t even think to ask for it, but she must have been reading my mind! The scrap bag it full of goodies also, I should really get a picture, a lot of the prints in there HR/FMF are about FE.

When I first came home from a weekend away and saw the box sitting outside my garage in the rain, soaking wet, I was about to get REALLLLLY mad with the post office. I figured there was art inside since I had requested it, and really hoping everything was wrapped in plastic. We’ll everything wasn’t wrapped in plastic, but fortunately nothing was damaged either! I would not have been very happy with my mail lady or the post office!

Sunday

This past Sunday was a day full of newness! And fabulous newness at that!

Mom and I went and test drove the APQS Millennium with the local rep. Angela of Thread Waggle Quilting. Need I say more, It was just plain AMAZING!! I am so ready for a longarm! We are going to test drive a few more over the next few months and we are also planning on making a trip to MQX-east and/or MQX-west! We have a lot of excitement in the air!

On another note, which was more personal and very special, I got to meet my dad’s family for the first time! Not his whole family, just his brother and niece really, but none the less it was awesome! They live out on the west coast, which could possibly afford me some west coast fabric shopping trips! And visiting with more family! Of course we exchanged email and such and I can’t wait to keep in touch with my cousin esp since we are close in age and interests!

Sorry, I’ve gotten behind.

Last Saturday’s stash!

I gave in and got a few 1/4yards of Innocent Crush to dabble with, although it is interesting that AMH, AB, and Kaffe are all starting to look the same! Yes, they are working together, but come on be a little different! Hence why I did not buy the whole line and in such small quantities. I also picked up a few FQ of Erin McMorris Weekends and a cute “sushi roll” which is going to be a Christmas gift. And of course LOTS of solid yardage. I seem to be running out as fast as I can buy it!

The top print on the solid yardage is a yard of Kaffe shot cotton. I haven’t worked with it before, but I think it is my new favorite. The only down fall is that it really needs to be starched before sewing. Conveniently Best Press is a quick, easy fix to that dilemma.

Oh yes! Mom got us Material Obsession 2 to share! It is all sorts of fabulous!

PS: Did I mention I decided against the Mani/Pedi Mom offered in exchange for fabrics! What kind of sick soul am I haha. A fabric addicted one apparently! Of course Mom just replied with “I’m glad you have your priorities straight!”

If you’re in need of a good read…

I admit, I usually am not a reader by any means. I can barely get past the text book chapters assigned to me and usually I don’t even get that far. I have in the past disliked to read mainly for the fact that I was assigned to read certain books in high school and English college classes. With that and lack of time finishing up my senior year, pushing head first into my business, Nannying, and going home to visit family as much as possible by the end of the day I really just want to sit and sew some more…or sleep!

The past few months have been quite a change in my life and big changes are going to continue through the next year in regards to family, school, and maybe a real job after graduation??

As for that real job, I would love to be able to push my business into a whole new direction and possibly a brick and mortar shop. With that all said that is a lot of work for a 21 year old. And a longarm is in the vision/works within the next year.

The bottom line of this post and in regards to the book is to do what you love and don’t stop pushing for it until you get there. Yes, cliche but out right true. I have wanted to be a doctor my whole life, follow in my dad’s footsteps, but he has constantly reminded me that I need to do something that just comes to me naturally. And yes, I do love studying all about the brain and it comes pretty naturally, but recently I have realized that I love something even more…Design.

Now where that will take me in the future I don’t know yet, but keep your eye out, because you just might be seeing me!

So a little inspiration from dad and The Help by Kathryn Stockett has really opened my eyes! The book was recommended to me by the kids mother, I work for. She does a lot of reading and seems to like the same type of books I do. I actually could not put this book down!

It is about the “help” that work for the wealthy white families in Jackson Mississippi and how one of the white ladies, Miss Skeeter, decided to pursue her writing dreams after college, behind her parents back.

Check it out! It was a wonderful, yet easy read and I truly could not put it down!

Wheeewwwww 100th post! Oh and more Destashing

Wow! I just realized it is my 100th post…that calls for a giveaway, which will be in another post in the next few days!

As for the real reason of this post is for more of my Destashing over at the shop!

I am Destashing some OOP/HTF prints here in the next few days to start funding part of the Longarm my mom and I are looking into buying (every little bit helps :-)!! It is going to be a wonderful, yet super expensive purchase regarding a machine. We have yet to decide which one we like best, but are looking into Gamill and APQS. Any suggestions?

Here is a bit of what’s going up right now.
