i *heart* fabric!

yes, its silly, i know
but it is so beautiful!
this is my most recent stack from hawthorne threads.

i think a few of these combos may make their way onto bloom bags!

and i have a new product idea for this combo (its a secret!)

sometimes i look at my fabric stash to see what i’m missing.
then i head over to hawthorne’s color grid and choose which color i need more of.
then all the fabrics they sell that have that color are brought up.
that way i don’t have to search through every single fabric.
it is awesome!

    I wish I could come over and see them in person! It does make me want to go upstairs and sew though.

    There is something about fabric. Even just sitting it is eye candy. I always say that I dream in fabric swatches and paint chips.

    I love Hawthorne threads, I found them a few weeks ago and my first order is on the way!

    L.O.V.E all the creative products that you have! I have a couple of petal pushers and just love them. I shared them and your blog button on my blog for others to find the goodness!! I don't know yet how to link up pages so here is the site.

    I love Hawthorne fabrics! I could spend way too much money there. Thankfully their fabrics are usually cheaper than if I went to my local store here in Canada (kinda sad to now that I think about it).
