I have slowed way way down on fabric buying. There is so much out there that i love(like this and this and this to name a few) but i am so unmotivated to sew and my output is so low right now that i can not justify it. But this one fabric has been on my mind for quite awhile...12 Days of Christmas by Kate Spain. I know, Colleen(my sister)...me buying Christmas fabric....what?!?!?!
I have in the past, mocked and gagged and rolled my eyes a little at Christmas fabric...or really any holiday or season specific fabric. Sorry! Don't be offended if you love them. It is me not you! I know that there are lots of beautiful seasonal fabrics out there made by super talented designers...and more than that there are so many beautiful quilts and other things made by great fabric artists and super talented sewers. I just can't, or should say, couldn't do it. Until i saw this line of Christmas fabric. With this, i was converted!!!
I bought the 10 inch layer cake, so it is planned to be a simple quilt. Just gonna mix them up, maybe let Avery lay it all out for me. You can stop laughing now Colleen.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
