i miss my huge bins of fabric so much. at this moment, all of my scraps and bits and pieces, and thrift store sheets and pillowcases, and beautiful yards of quilting cotton are sitting in a barn in maine. i am two states away, patiently waiting for the day that they will make it on to the boat and on to my island and in to my hands. only a few more days.

in the meantime,
i will be trying to put together a back
for this with not even close to enough fabric.

see, i received a scrap pack from hawthorne threads for winning the spring runner sew-along at stumbles & stitches (by the way, jenny and angel are running a fantastic fundraiser for the tornado disaster relief in alabama - awesome work, ladies!). i have been living off of the beautiful little pieces of fabric that came in the mail. patiently waiting and waiting, biting my nails until i can get my hands on my stash.

i have two quilts (one bed size, one picnic) planned that i must make now.



  1. I love seeing the fabrics you got in your scrap pack, they're all different so you never know. Great job making do! I like this patchwork project, your style is so unique and inspiring.

    I would be going cuckoo crazy in your shoes waiting for my stash to arrive. When we lived with my in-laws for 3 months a couple of years ago (we were between houses while my husband was between jobs), we brought a box of toys, a box of books, a couple of suitcases of clothes AND my sewing machine and 3 boxes of fabric, he he!

    Hang in there! And thank you for the kind words + links. :)

  2. thanks jenny - we've been living with my mom for a month and we packed our car full of the essentials but there wasn't enough room for more than a small box of fabric. i'm going crazy!

    good job with the fundraiser - i'm seriously impressed with all the good work you're doing!
