So, back to getting cheered up.... Here's a new collection of amazing fabrics from Prints Charming - two lovely Australian designers. While we still love traditional fabrics and the quilts made from them, it is a shot of energy to use these bright prints. And, they make up wonderful garments as well. I'm working on an Indygo Junction apron pattern in some of these new prints. I promise to show the final product when finished!
Another lovely little delight is these handcrafted soaps by one of our friends, Carol. Carol and her husband have "retired" and craft these amazing soaps which are wonderfully scented, a delight to use and seem to last forever. We don't know where they find the molds for the soaps, but we love them all! Carol restocks us regularily restocks us. We can put together a lovely gift basket for a favorite quilting friend, or maybe for you. To cheer you up on this blustery NE Iowa day!
