I haven't been buying much fabric lately, but I did order a bundle of Hello Petal from the Intrepid Thread! They always manage to have exactly what I want.  Anyway, I whipped up this cute little quilt in no time...
I love the softness of this quilt. These prints are so sweet! Who can resists cats and cute little girls! 
And...I'm finally ready to cut into these...

These came from Mad About Patchwork, my favourite online Canadian fabric retailer.  I have had these for quite a while as I have been unable to decide on a pattern.  I've finally made my choice and I'm almost ready to start cutting! I'll keep you updated!

My much younger friend just had a gorgeous baby girl last week! In an effort to put my garment sewing skills to the test, I whipped up these...
I think they turned out pretty good!  The pattern was great and all went well until the waistband when I had a little trouble. In the end I made a casing and inserted the elastic and it worked out just fine!  I do enjoy working with knits (is there a serger in my future - perhaps) and making these small projects is so satisfying!

At long last I had my first sale in my little fabric shop! To mark this momentous occasion, I have decided to have my first giveaway! I put together this little bundle of 1/4 metre cuts (that's 10 inches to my American readers) of each Kona cotton in my shop which also happen to be my favourite Kona colours...

These include White, Snow, Ash, Aqua and Peony!
Now, I know I don't get a huge amount of people reading my blog, so I'm going to leave this giveaway open until I have ten comments or until Monday morning at 9:00 a.m. (which happens to be Family Day here in B.C.) at which time I will randomly pick a winner!
Hopefully, this is the start to more sales and I can stock more colours! As my friend Caroline said (who happens to have a fabulous Etsy shop), every conglomerate started with one sale!
