Well, here it is May already! My kids just had their last day of school. I have finally added Fairy Tale Friends fabrics to the website. I just love this fabric! It is in the usual American Jane 1930's colors and style - just lovely! In addition, the focal point of this fabric group are fairy tale characters. Are these Grimm's Fairy Tales? I am no sure, so someone let me know.... Anyway, the characters that are featured in this fabric are Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Bears, The Three Little Kittens, The Gingerbread Man, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Henny Penny. Imagine - fairy tales on fabric! I think that this would make a darling child's room; plus, with all of our television and technology today, it keeps those wonderful fairy tales alive in the hearts of new generation. I hope you enjoy it!

I have to tell you, I just love every fabric that Kate Spain has ever created! She has such a flair for the contemporary, without being too edgy, that I just love. Her latest collection, Terrain, is no exception. It is just gorgeous! The colors in this collection are saturated and bright. I especially love the orange pieces! We have a great selection of the yardage, plus Layer Cakes, Charm Square Packs and Jelly Rolls. See them all at Terrain by Kate Spain.

Yay! How the Grinch Stole Christmas fabric is on the website! Finally, something fun is happening....I haven't blogged in about a month. It has been a c-r-a-z-y month around here! First, we finally got my mom moved back to her home, well her new home, in Alabama. She was with me for 3 months after the tornado destroyed her home. It was a very difficult time for her. She was able to get a new place, and she and her dogs are now happily settled again. Then Rachel went off to her first bandcamp. She decided that it would be o.k. to march a little while without socks, because the socks didn't look pretty with her shoes. She got several blisters, which got infected, so I made two trips out to the camp to get her for doctor's visits. The night that she came home from bandcamp, our house was burglarized! Someone came through the window during the night! Our dogs started barking and scared them away, but not before they took my purse off of my kitchen table! That has been a total nightmare, just trying to replace everything that I carried in my purse! But, we do now have an alarm system in our home. It's just not the kind of thing that ever happens in a nice, small town. Just after the burglary, we noticed that Joshua's hand look strange. He suffers from occasional eczema flare-ups, but this one didn't look right. He was diagnosed with an MRSA infection in his hand. If that wasn't bad enough, he then came down with what turned out to be Fifth's Disease (usually a mild childhood illness). He got the very rare manifestation of blisters covering his hands and feet....then the skin peeled from his hands! It took 7 doctor's visits over two weeks to figure out what was going on with him! We are very grateful that it turned out to be nothing serious, and his hands and feet are now almost back to normal. He is at school today. Rachel is at school today, too! It is her first year of high school. Tonight is her very first football game. She is a baritone player in the marching band, so we are looking forward to seeing her marching band half-time show tonight. Wow! Life is back to normal, but what a weird three weeks it has been! Please forgive me if I missed your call or if your order came a little later than expected. I am thankful that we are all back on track now and everyone is healthy and happy. Now I can enjoy my new fabric! Yay!
How the Grinch Stole Christmas fabric collection is just adorable! It so takes me back to the pre-VCR days when we would anxiously await the once-per-year broadcast of the tv show. The fabric perfectly depicts Dr. Seuss' artwork from the book. We have the entire fabric collection plus a fat quarter bundle. Wouldn't an apron made from this make a great gift for a teacher? (or maybe a great gift for myself!)
