More Boutique Patchwork!

See what happens when something triggers your little Japanese Patchwork addiction and you can't stop yourself? You discover more of these little boutique series of books.
I have a little collection already and these are just as good. I can't help but love this little pillow. Look at that wonderful apple fabric and ohmygosh look at that little bouquet piece along the top.

And this.. LOOK AT THIS!!! I could gaze at this all day. The colors, the trims and good gravy look at that zipper and the binding and THOSE BUTTONS.

So whatcha up to peoples? I'm sewing for Elizabeth today. Yesterday I went over to check out the new Sweet fabrics that Moda sent. Urban Chiks my friends.. (I know them by the way.) If you loved Swell you're going to really love Sweet! Anyway, Elizabeth has this new little nosegay pattern that is so wonderful I could have wept. No exaggeration. She needs to sneak peek it because again, OHMYGOSH.

Ok, that quilt isn't going to quilt itself.. better get busy. Have a good day happy peoples! xo

Goodness, I would have snatched those books up to.

I am making miles and miles and miles of birthday carnival bunting. Why I cannot figure out how to make the scalloped rotary cutter cut the other side of the fabric without moving to the other side of the table is the big question of the day though. LOL

I love Sweet! I was all ready to use something else. . . & then 'the box' arrived. . . It's so. . . . sweet!
I can't wait to see E's new designs. . . they are always wonderful!
. . . & the little Japanese booklets & projects? . . . there are no words. . . (maybe heavenly?), so move over a little . . . I'll gaze with you! xo. Bren

Squealing... NEW "little books"! I feel like hopping in the car and heading over to Kinowhatsthename store! Sigh... not gonna happen today. Only place my car is going is to Safeway and the vet (yeah, both dogs - fun).

Dying to see Sweet. I'm still on my Swell high (I doubt it will ever go away).

I loves me some Japanese books. I would get them all if I could a- afford all them and b- if I could find all of them. Not to mention the fabric that they make things out of inside the books!

I love that pillow too! The chunky courthouse steps, the fabrics, the colors, too cute:)
I'm packing and working towards finally getting my Pay-It-Forward gifts done. I have till March, but I wish I had already gotten them done. Hopefully soon!

I didn' think anything could be sweeter than Swell. Guess I underestimated "our girls"!
