This little hoop is 4 inches tall. That's all. I can't say enough about how much I love it - I think Christel should sell them, don't you? In fact, you should go to her blog and tell her.
I have had an excellent week for mail. The husbeast has been over in New York and brought me back a gift (obviously), and as it is my birthday in a couple of weeks I thought it was only fair to get some fabric - because I haven't bought any so far this year. Not a single fat quarter. Instead of being my usual greedy, grabby handed self I show restraint and asked him for just fat quarters in the blue and greys from Denyse Schmidt's greenfield hill. From Purl Soho. Love that shop.
Also this week (after a slight kerfuffle with the post office as to whether it had been delivered or was still at the sorting office or in the postman's van...turns out I was right - it was still at the sorting office) this stack of Summery beauties arrived. Thanks to Jennifer. A huge thanks to Jennifer actually.
This is Honey Child, Sis Boom's latest collection and probably (definitely) my favourite so far - because of the purple prints. They're so rich and gorgeous.
I'm just about to make a start on cutting this lot up so I can make a quilt (with tutorial) for the Fat Quarterly website.
(you can buy honey child for yourself at sewmamasew right now - even though it's not due out until later this Spring!)
