Francine is helping me out here by holding onto just one day's load of goodies acquired at Sewing & Quilt Expo I attended for two days this week.
She stayed home wearing my tablecloth apron adorned with sewing images from
THE GRAPHICS FAIRY .
The fabric choices were phenominal. Of course, this show is angled toward quilters, most of whom have fancy machines that do all the actual stitching but I found loads of inspirational fabrics to create my kind of creations.
Are you familiar with those fabric strips called Jelly Rolls? Here is a huge one.

Well, it is pretending to be one. But really is a big piece of foam covered in a jelly roll costume! This is Pam demonstrating how to relax. The pattern is from Carol at Aunties Two. Check it out.

|Found lots of dots...my current passion|

This was abargain find. It is so unusual and I have some fun ideas for it. Keep up with me each week to see what happens to it.
an then there is this. I bought it in a red/blue combination last year and haven't sewn it up yet. Now I will two!
The check is on one side and the plaid is on the reverse and is it very light and airy. Perfect for a summer tunic, maybe. I better get this all used up before next year's Expo.
