Jo's Little Favorites and Organization
Santa did find his way to my house during Christmas. He didn't come the usual way "eight tiny reindeer pulling a sleigh." Santa came with hip boots and driving an outboard motor boat because we had rain, rain and more rain and it stopped raining long enough to rain some more. Santa was kind enough to leave some cabbage (money) in my stocking. Santa being the intelligent guy that he is knew one of the items on my Christmas list was Jo Morton's new book called Jo's Little Favorites and Santa knew this book was being released in January.
While waiting for my delivery, I did some more shopping with my Christmas cabbage (money) and found these.
They are fabric boards from Primitive Gatherings. In Lisa's words to help me organize my "collection" of fabric. The fabric boards will help me to clean up my sewing room and it will be so enjoyable when I am auditioning fabric.
So what does a girl do while she is waiting for Amazon to deliver her new book and USPS to deliver fabric boards? She goes fabric shopping! I found a new to me fabric shop called Whittle's Fabrics. Whittle's is located just outside Smith's Grove, KY which is about a 70 mile drive from Nashville. They carry some of favorite designer fabric: Judie Rothermel, Jo Morton, Buggy Barn, Marcus, Primitive Gatherings, and Windham. The price per yard of fabric is very affordable and fat quarters are even more affordable. I left Whittle's with a big smile on my face and an arm load of fabric! They have a web site and if you are looking for fabric at discounted prices they are worth a look.
Time to break in my new book and get started on a new quilt
