Fabric Pulls

These past few days found me going down a rabbit hole. I hit the wall with missing family, not being able to focus, and really missing the physical contact of a simple hug. It was really strange not to see family or friends over the Easter weekend other than social media posts, video and telephone calls. On the upside I did have a nice video visit with the part of my clan that are self isolating in Mexico. Saturday was my daughter’s 46th birthday. With the issues going on in her world right now, we were happy to at least get a phone call in the mix!

And that would be a bonus for the purchasers 🤔

Saturday I decided it was time to shake things up and get my act together after seeing all of the posts on Studio Organizing. I had to rearrange things to get better light in my sewing space. Our little apartment only has 2 windows, one in the bedroom and a tiny one in the living/dining room area. So I managed to rearrange things and get everything tidy and everything in its place. I forgot to take a picture with a clear cutting table because I got busy pulling fabric for my next few projects.

Oh My! What a mess can occur in 1 day!

The next three pulls might or might not work for a pattern test and two blog hop projects, but I will finalize the choices once I’m ready to cut the fabrics. I’m sharing the palettes to see if they work. What do you think?

That blue on the bottom is questionable. It just doesn’t pop for me.
How cheery are these beauties. Jelly roll strips cut and ready to go with some coordinating fabric; just need the right neutral now!
More teal treasured bits from the stash. White and gold always works for a contrast.

On another note; my socks are ready to be cast off the needles. Perhaps tonight after I finish the binding on Robbie Robotix quilt.

So belated Happy Easter to you all. I hope you had a wonderful one with plenty of time shared on line with your loved ones 😄 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Love that meme! LOL My sons will probably give it all away, and that’s okay. You have some beautiful fabrics there. US mail is pretty normal these days. How’s Canadian mail? I haven’t mailed, because I didn’t want things sitting around somewhere.

    1. Hi Susan. I’m thinking my stash will get donated to my Guild for the annual fundraiser 😉. Our mail is doing fine but extra busy. Processing times are at normal levels. I received a parcel from my DIL in 3 days which is normal. The grand and great grands had their Easter parcels in 3 or 4 days as well. Did you get to play with your longarm over the weekend? How’s that coming along? 😉


  2. On that first pull, could you add a green in place of the blue? That might make it pop? The second pull is very pretty! I’m missing coffee dates with friends, laughing with my girlfriends (who get me), and just being able to wander through a store that’s not Target or groceries!

    1. Hi Wendy. I will check tomorrow if I have the right green in my stash. You are brilliant! I knew the blue just didn’t do it for me. I so agree! Trying to fabric shop by photo just doesn’t work for me either. A bunch of friends had a Mad Hatter Tea Party yesterday (complete with hats I might add) via Zoom to break up the day. I forgot what time it was and went out for a walk and missed it. 🤔
