Stash Report

I've been adding some new fabrics to my stash lately!  I totally fell in love with the Michael Miller children at play fabrics after buying the pink balloons fabric for the Novelty Squares exchange.  Luckily I order extra of that fabric because I knew I wanted some for myself too.  Now, I've added a few more fabrics from that line to my stash along with some others that I'm squirreling away for future projects. 

I'm so grateful to Cotton Blossom Farm for the quick and reasonable shipping and actually having all the fabrics that I was looking for (including some that I wasn't looking for but had to have after seeing them; funny how that happens.  It's like how chocolate magically jumps into my cart at the grocery store).  I'm always happy to discover fabric shops that carry everything I'm looking for in one place.  It saves on both hassle and shipping to order all at once.  It's also nice when an online store has such great customer service :-) I'm a very happy girl today!
 The "On Parade" border fabric might be my favorite.  I really want to make a birthday dress for my daughter out of this print.  Her birthday has already passed this year, but I wanted to order this fabric now because you never know when a line will become hard to find.  I looked at a lot of online fabric stores who were sold out already.
I also got some polka-dot fabric in yellow and blue, some American Jane "tickets in cream" and some little apples fabric in red that will make it into an I spy, and of course the children at play fabric.  I just love the little girls playing with their dolls and the boy chasing the airplane.
  I also broke down and ordered some flea market fancy fabric. I have got to admit that I now know why everyone seems to love this fabric.  It is beautiful.  I'm thinking that the bouquet in grey is going to end up as a little purse for me.  The blues and yellow are likely going to be in a quilt.  I also planted my window boxes yesterday.  I'm loving my new red geraniums.  It's finally starting to feel like spring here.
