When fabrics come in the mail I waste no time going right up to my sewing room, open the box to oooh and ahhh over the contents and start imagining the projects that are yet to be. Then I put them in a stack for the next laundry day. This time, when the box arrived, I decided to change things up a bit. Instead of passing by the living room I decided to go in, sit in my favorite chair, and open the box in there. The sun was streaming through the windows and I just couldn't resist the urge to sit and enjoy it. The only thing missing was a cup of tea.
As I removed the fabric from the box, I began stacking them up on the tea table and noticed how they seemed right at home there. Seeing all the fabric there made me enjoy them even more and I was glad I broke from my routine. I don't think I'll make a habit of doing this with every fabric purchase but on this day, the cheeriness of the colours lifted my spirits and brightened my mood...Reminds me that it's the simple things that can sometimes make the biggest impact.
Now just in case you want to add to your own fabric stash :-) Here's a list of what's on my table:
Jelly roll - Westminster French Hatbox
Jelly roll - Blackbird Designs Wild Rose (Moda)
Layer cake - Minick & Simpson Charlevoix (Moda)
Tasha Tudor - A is for Annabelle (RJR)
Lecien - Flower Sugar

Thanks for visiting with me and take a moment to break from a routine it just might be the spark to get those creative juices flowing.
Have a fantastic weekend everybody.
