I can't believe it has been five days since I last posted; where has the time gone??

My blog is like a friend: I think of her every day and the time that I want to spend with her, and then the day is over, and she is neglected again. I'm so sorry!
Spring has arrived officially. And along with its arrival I got this lovely package in the mail of fabric! Normally, any fabric on my doorstep is greeted with the utmost of happiness, but this fabric was special. It comes from the amazing Michelle from Cicada Studio. I ordered several yards from her Dogwood collection; it is rapidly becoming scarce, and I "needed" to get some before it was gone.

Isn't it pretty? But the dilemma: how to cut into this buttery loveliness? What project deserves to be created from it? I'll have to ponder it and get back to you with my decision.

And now I want to also share with you that I've opened up another shop on Paper 'n Stitch! Check me out here! And while you're there, give me a "heart" will you? There's a little contest to see who can get the most hearts. Ordinarily, I wouldn't bother, but there IS a reward: a free month of shop platform on paper n stitch PLUS a cash prize! So go and click, my friend! There's a little heart next to my picture with a "plus sign" (+) next to it. Click on the plus to give me some sugar.

I love getting lovely new fabrics - except I never want to cut them up! I love the one with the birds on it. Can't wait to see what you make out of that :)

Love your new shop...+1 heart from me! I don't know how you will cut into that luscious fabric. Maybe you should wrap up in it first and take a little nap. It looks that inviting.

Michelle's fabrics are so lovely, cutting into them would take some special thought. I am sure you will create something wonderful from them, and look forward to seeing what you do! Congrats on the new shop, also!

I love the fabric. That's so pretty. I'd have a hard time cutting it up!

Thanks for stopping by yesterday!

Thanks for the hearts everyone! I know I have a snowball's chance in that very very hot place, but it's fun to try. My shop will be up until April 26th, so recruit your friends to heart me, too! Oh, wait. That might be kinda weird. You do what feels right and don't listen to me!
