Package from Purl Soho

Well, here I go bragging about my latest fabric purchases ;) Avert the eyes if you want to save yourself from temptation!!

First up, who doesn't covet Liberty of London fabric? I always drool over it, but pretty pricey stuff. So, when Purl Soho put together a mini rainbow bundle, I bit. Just little pieces, but a little can go a long way, right?

First off, let me say, I ADORE it! So very pretty. Second- I will tell you when I opened the package, I actually laughed out loud. Sooooo tiny! Here it is to scale....fitting as it cost me a pretty penny, $50 for this wee package! Joke's on me!

Regardless, still glad I have it, and I have my ideas, don't you worry!! Maybe an Irish Chain style quilt or something similar that uses lots of solids. Any suggestions?? Also great for adding bits of beauty to smaller sewing projects like clutches, etc.

While I was there, I also picked up this cute Alexander Henry print ("goo goo socks" in brite). Hadn't ever seen it before, but it is so cute. A couple coordinates/stash builders as well.

Finally, I picked up some FQs of Rowan Fabrics shot cotton. I love the texture and vibrant colors! To be used for lining purses and such.

(seen here in butter, ice, true cobalt, lilac, pink and heather/mushroom)

That's enough damage for one day, I'd say!

Oh my word! How fabulous! I looked at Liberty of London prints when I was in San Francisco at Britex Fabrics. I almost died when I saw the price per yard. But it was just so lovely... like butter!

Nice fabrics! The Liberty in particular looks so romantic and beautiful (if tiny).

The fabric certainly is pretty, but the penny transposed with the stack is just comical. LOL!! I can't wait to see how far you can make them stretch. :D

Hey, when you find something you really love, it's worth the price! (Or that's what I tell my husband...)

Can't wait to see what you make with that stack of loveliness.

I love Liberty of London but haven't had the guts to spend that much on fabric yet. Maybe this little pack is worth it, even though it is quite small!

The bundle is beautiful, but I just love that sock print!
