Spring Street happiness

1 new fabric

I just got some fabric from the new line Spring Street from Sew, Mama Sew! and I am in love. I think it may not take much for me to be in love with new fabric. Ha! Who doesn’t love a new line? This line has a sweet panel with many different houses. Perfect for feeding my house addiction.

2 adorable houses

They have patchy borders around each little scene. After I cut each little scene out, I made sure to carefully cut the border out that went around each panel. So cute!

3 fun details

I thought they would be perfect for me to practice more Mug Rugs with. A little batting, some background fabric and you are set!

 4 quilted

I just free motioned around the drawings and stitched in the ditch for the patchy looking lines. Quick and simple. These Mug Rugs are addictive, and this fabric is so bright and happy. We are still in the throes of winter here it seems. It is still COAT weather. I am so ready for some spring.

 6 machine quilting

My sister was still here and we were sewing together. She was working on a skirt pattern that she never did finish. Oops. We spent a lot of time watching all our BBC series and even started watching Army Wives. Uhm, yah. I totally indulged while she was here. It was delightful.

7 eating yummy snacks

We did keep our jelly beans separate though. I love the black jelly beans. She loves Starburst jelly beans. You must not mix them in your mouth. It isn’t right at all.
