fabric candy

Hello! We took a lovely vacation to the family farm in West Virginia over the 4th of July holiday and I've had little time to sew (although I did baste and quilt a finished top, just need to get pictures of it now).

This literally just arrived in my mailbox. Happy, happy!
I pre-ordered a select few of the new Cotton & Steel fabrics from Hawthorne Threads.

There are soooo many great prints in these collections it was hard just to choose a few! As I've been seeing more pictures of the Cotton & Steel fabrics I've decided I need a few of those gorgeous lavendery pinks to add to my stash.

On a very personal note:
I'm keeping this short and sweet since I'm actually preparing for surgery tomorrow. It was back towards the beginning of this blog (7! years ago) that I had my first surgery and was diagnosed with Crohn's disease. Yes, it can be challenging but there are many things worse and I'm fortunate to have excellent health care and a supportive family. We all have something in life that is difficult but those are what pushes us to grow. So I'd love to have your prayers for tomorrow! Thanks and I'll be back soon!

Isn't cotton and steel fun?
