Super fortunate - Stash Additions

You will see how fortunate I've been lately when you scroll through and see these wonderful additions to my stash, all through generosity of friends, bloggers and fabric shop (shoppe).

I've subscribed to Cath Kidston emails for years. I love her all of her products, including bags, shoes (especially gumboots), clothing, cross stitch and especially fabric. My lovely friend just returned from the UK and brought back these beautiful fabrics and buttons. I've no idea how/when I will use these yet, but I know I will come up with something, eventually. (aren't they the cutest buttons you have ever seen?)

How cute is this puppy fabric? I'm thinking of something for my aunt and cousin who are huge doggy fans.
Next, I was fortunate enough to win 12 fat quarter 'red' fabrics on the fabulous Red Pepper Quilt's blog, kindly donated by the Fabric Shoppe.
Rita is super talented and a massive inspiration to many. If you have never had a look at her site - you MUST go and have a look.

I also received some Aurifil thread in the bundle which I have heard so much about but have never used before. I will let you know how it goes. This is also my very first text print and I just love it. 

OK, so this has to be my fave. Musical notes - so cute.
Happy Stitching

Another Baby Quilt

This is a quilt for a lovely baby to be received on her Naming Day.
I chose some bright fabrics from the Daydream line by Kate Spain.

A little picture overload but I just adore the citrus colours with green and blue. 

Such cute prints in this range, Kate Spain never disappoints.

The binding was a little difficult to choose, however, I'm now happy with my third choice - yellow and white.

Whilst quilting this baby I was desperate for my machine to keep chugging. It is long overdue for a service. Just a few more things to make first please........

Happy Stitching
