I recently purchased a bunch of yarn on sale.  I am gonna work hard on one.

Purchases and Progress

I recently made my hubby wait in the car with the dog while I purchased these fabrics. I pined over them for quite some time. Pillows and quilt are in mind. My husband picked out the large targets for the living room. I love it because it is all Kaffe.

I also have spent way too long on this quilt but I actually have long strips of the mountain fence rail quilt. I cant wait to sew them together and get a better vision of the final product. I am worried my blocks will be off. Wish me luck!

Kaffe Fabric Spotting

I recently went to Crate and Barrel at the local mall to purchase a wedding gift. I was checking out a few items on the registry in the linen section. On the bottom row of the shelves of place mats and napkins there was this lovely jewel of Kaffe fabric.
I had a mini stroke. Napkins out of a heavy canvas. I am probably the only one who cares, but I was so proud that I actually knew. I am sure over the years of Kaffe creations that this is not the first mainstream application of his fabric. However, it was my first sighting. All the hours looking a fabric paid off.  Oh, how I wanted them. I put them into the shopping basket.... and begrudgingly (ps. I really like this word) put them back. I have this fabric in the Kaffe quilt. I really like it....... the blue teal background is wonderful.

Texas in panels

I am one star away from having a Texas quilt. Here are the panels of strips. I am also including my favorite snack... chocolate and popcorn.
