Filling the Gap

I mentioned that I had finally placed a big order with Pink Chalk Fabrics, the prize from my Blowin’ in The Wind entry in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. Several asked to see what I chose. Well, my packaged arrived, even quicker than I expected!

Aren’t they gorgeous?!! As you can see I chose solids to fill in the soft spots in my collection. I chose a mix of Kona Cottons and Michael Miller’s Cotton Coutures to get the variety I needed.

Buying what was available, when everything was 40% and liquidating, I still feel weak in the pinks and yellows but this put me back to where I feel more comfortable in the fall colors that have been depleted ever since I created Tomorrow Morning and that has been over two years ago!

One of the things that impressed me about this $100, felt like a windfall, order was that the fabrics were cut and stacked in the same order as the receipt, making it easy to find which is Mud as opposed to Espresso. This is one of the special touches I will miss with Pink Chalk Fabrics going out of the fabric business. They still have some a few good deals  if you haven’t checked them out lately.

Receiving these encouraged me spend yesterday, straightening and reorganizing fabrics, and projects, in my studio. I’ve been meaning to get a round to this for a while. I feel like a can breathe deep before I start pulling fabrics to make another mess!

Or maybe I should just sit in the calm and finish one of the many projects that are just waiting patiently to completed…
