OH...let me just tell you, I AM SOOOOO EXCITED! I just got my BRAND NEW camera today! I sold my other one so I could get this one to make it easier to do my videos! The main difference between my new and old camera is the new one has a viewfinder that moves around....yeah...don't know the technical term for it...but at least I'll be able to actually see if I'm in focus now! YAY! lol
okay, back to the scheduled (haha yea right) programming!
First, I'll show you what I've made.....
Then I loved my "K" so much I decided to make one for a friend that I'm doing a swap with, but the bad thing is, I think I like hers better! LOL! Oh well!!!! It's pretty huh? I wanted it to be really scrappy and fun and I think I accomplished that quite well!
Here is the back of hers, just something simple!
I quilted both of the "K"s the same way, stitched in the ditch around the "K" and then just echoed that line with my walking foot. I'd say the lines are a little bit larger than a 1/4". I really love the way they both turned out though!
Now onto my other pretties......
I have been on an EXTREMELY tight budget for the majority of this past year and have not been able to buy much fabric at all! (I know, very sad right?) So with that being said I decided to splurge a little and buy some fabric that I've really been wanting!
Soooo, I hopped over to one of my favorite online shops Westwood Acres and did a little shopping! I don't know why, but lately when I actually get to buy fabric I've just been buying fat quarters instead of actual yardage (unless the fabric is for something specific!) Wanna see what I got?
Yep, I went a little crazy! I HATE fabric diets!
This line right here is one that I've been really excited about! I absolutely LOVE Lotta Jansdotter's fabrics! Like, seriously L-O-V-E! This is her newest line called MorMor and it is every bit as fantastic as I expected it to be! I will buying some yardage of a few of these prints! (I really want like a yard of each but there's this thing called a BUDGET that I hate! LOL!)
Then I got these beauties! I really LOVE Allison Glass too! And I have pretty much all of the other prints in this line except for Corsage. This is called X and + and is from the Sun Print (I think) collection.
I've been DYING to get my hands on this collection from Joel Dewberry's line "True Colors" this is called Herringbone and I absolutely LOVE it! I really wanted to buy yardage of each of these but I contained myself pretty well I think! And then Amanda also sent me a cute little mini charm pack of April Showers as a little gift! I love getting surprises like that!
So, after I did all that damage one of my friends decided to have a "pop up" sale over on IG and I really really could NOT stop myself....
I got these beauties!!!! The new Pearl Bracelets, they are tone on tone and a few metallics too! I know FOR SURE I will be buying yardage of these! LOL! I just wanted a little to be able to play around with! You can find Jen's shop right here it's called Knotted Thread! Jen is really super sweet and her prices are amazing! (No, she did not pay me to say that nor does she even know I'm writing this post, I just REALLY love her shop and her! SO GO CHECK HER OUT! and tell her I sent you!)
Here is another view of the Pearl Bracelets, just because I love them soooo much!
Anyhow, how was your week? Have you got any ideas for videos for me to shoot? If so, leave them in the comments!!! I'm sooo excited about my upcoming channel! You guys just have no idea, seriously it's all I've been thinking about!!!! I hope y'all are just as excited as I am!
~Hope y'all are having a GREAT day!!!~
