Tickle me delighted!

I was just all kinds of giddy when the talents over at invited me to kit some of their patterns for issue #2. "Scraps" (on sale now).

Come take a look at my rendition of Tacha's Elephants on Parade or Brioni's Daisy chain today at Burgundy

Admittedly, I was a bit nervous as BB hasn't been in business so long to be over flowing with scrap fabric- but I am pleased with my results!  My favorite?  A little kit using Kashmir III (gosh remember that one?) some Moda Bella in parchment and then very plain simple Mody Bella White flowers.  I love it for it's simplicity! 

And I have to give a VERY special thanks to the gals over at EQ- they went out of their way to get me my EQ7 upgrade in LESS than 16 hours so that I could promptly start planning my kits.  I love EQ!

Just In!

Wow, I received ALOT of fabric in as of late!  Hopefully I can get it all posted this week!  

The first collection is beautiful!  I always expect to love everything created by the gals at 3 Sisters, but I really fell in love with Luna Notte when I opened the packages.  The colorway is Divine!  After hording a bit for myself, I promptly posted the rest.

See the collection here,

and buy it here.

It Caught my Photographer's Eye!

As I once mentioned in a Mo 'bout Me Monday, I'm a bit of a photography addict!  So imagine my delight when I checked out the Moda Bakeshop Today!

Talented Cara of Cara's Quilts has whipped up quite a bakeshop treat that pays tribute to my hobby of choice.

Don't you just love the contrast?

I had to gather my fabrics right away and assemble a bakeshop kit just for BB patrons.  Contains all the fabric needed for the top and binding and for only $76.95.  Retails for $100.00!

Pure is Pure Delight!

Pure is probably one of the most talked about collections coming out this summer.  Sweetwater's previous and debut collection "Authentic" sold faster than most people could get their hands on it.  I anticipate Pure to be quite a hit as well! 

You may also remember Moda Bakeshop's Cushion Couture Recipe from master creative minds Julie and John featuring Authentic.  I received so many emails from folks desperately trying to find Authentic and most were very excited to learn of Pure. 

Get your Pure Precuts at Burgundy Buttons today.  Yardage comes next month!

Also, Boutique now sold in half yard increments for only $3.15 per half yard!

Back to Work

What a relaxing week we had!  I am having a hard time gaining any momentum this evening as we just got back from Naples, Florida!  I already miss the sun, the cocktails, and yes- even the gators!

We had an awesome time!

Just a few photos to share....

Every one loves a good sun bath.

Breathtaking views ended every evening perfectly!  You could go to any beach and be inspired by the beauty of the magnificent sunset.

Drink in hand, toes in sand, how much better
does it get?

And I love to modify my photos to give them a little kick!

I was literally about standing on my head in the sand to snap this photo from behind a small pile of rocks in my attempt to make them appear larger than they actually were.
