I won this glass case over at B's modern quilting . I love the case and it is so wonderfully constructed. Thanks so much Barbara, I love it!!!!

Playing with my Samoan Fabric.....

Two awesome dies in the mail today!!!


Busy creating something with these fabrics...
Using the left over Sunkissed jelly roll....

Fabric Therapy....

Trying to increase my Thimbleberry fabric...

Fabric from Ebony from Love Bug Studio, she has an etsy shop where she is selling some fabric from her stash.
Look at these pretties....from Inchworm Fabrics.
My husband and son were watching me open packages and they both just shook their heads and my husband said..."As if she needs more fabric".... he is right but I just can't help myself.

In my defense, he is my enabler..... he is the one that takes me to JoAnn's every Saturday, he is the one that makes sure I have enough batting and threads.... How many of you can use an enabler like this????? We will be married 33 years this month.

JustCindy said...

I believe your husband should give lessons to other husbands. lol I'm just kidding the only thing my husband every says is "What is that for?"

Gene Black said...

LOL. I act as my own enabler. A couple of weeks ago, I bought some Thimbleberries fabric and thought of you!

LynCC said...

Sounds like a good man to be married to! ;D

My husband gets me off track. I go in to buy one item and he brings a few fat quarters over that he thinks I should get. I guess I should be happy that he likes to help pick out fabric. He does a good job.

Royce said...

Congratulations on 33 wonderful years. Yes we all need such encouragement to buy fabric and goodies. My Hubby is like yours and understands my habit oops I mean hobby.

Susan said...

I'd say all of us who have a guy who sits in the car waiting for us to have fun is a great guy!

Barbara said...

Lovely fabrics, Barb, and I hope you can stretch those Samoan fabrics out for a long time to come. I have an enabler too. Just yesterday we were near Jo Ann's, and although I didn't ask to stop, he said we can't be near Jo Ann's without stopping. :) I didn't get fabric though, just some beads in green that I was low on, and for some reason I couldn't help myself from buying one of those netted baggies filled of glass beads and small marbles. I think they are meant for plants and such, but being in the most lovely color and with tons of sparkle, I just want to enjoy looking at them.

Jean said...

ooh, I like that wavy die... I can see making some pretty rosette flowers with wavy strips.... Looks like you'e got some fun projects a-brewin'... Enjoy!

I was watching some kind of cooking show with Hubby yesterday and the chef was wearing a black chef coat. Nothing exciting except peaking out of the top of the jacket was that red Samoan fabric! I was crocheting and barely listening when they said the chef was from Samoa so I looked up and spotted his red collar peaking out of the top of his jacket. Hubby looked at me like I was strange when I got all excited to see the same fabric I have in my stash from your old shop. lol.

West Michigan Quilter said...

Can't wait to see what you do with your Samoan fabric. I'm saving mine for something special and really want to use it! Wish I could meet a man like your husband. He is wonderful! What a guy! ;o)

Debi said...

It is all his fault for being an enabler, lol. Wishiing you very happy anniversary later this month! Rock on with all your projects.

Joanna said...

Jeepers, where to begin. The fabric is beautiful. You are so creative to use the tumbler die on strips sewn together. Never thought of doing that. I love your new dies, especially the little house. And I agree that the glass case is pretty and neatly done.

Melinda said...

Your tumbler blocks are wonderful! Love all the other projects also. You seem to have so much fun with your Go!

Snoodles said...

Wonderful projects! It's inspiring to me to see all that you are working on....makes me think I might be able to get through all my list! LOL I see in the comments that others will celebrate soon... It will be 34 years for us this March...we're all a bunch of love bugs!

wackywoman said...

What a great mail day!

Rhonda said...

Hi, my name is Rhonda and I'm a fabri-holic..... LOL... I think I'm my own enabler..... ;-}
You've got some wonderful fabrics there.... love them.

Happy Scrappy said...

Yes..enablers are wonderful! Wish you and your hubby a very happy anniversary!

sandra said...

Hi Barb I got out the Samoan fabric that you sent me and I cut out a little bag, I will send you a picture when I finish it. I have a husband like that to and we have been married 45 years and all though he complains I have fabric every where he always wants to know if I have everything I need. I am getting caught up today on reading my blogs.

Patty said...

Enablers unite! Happy anniversary!

Pokey said...

Happy anniversary to you both! He is a keeper, Barb!

Frog Quilter said...

Oooooooooooooooh lots of pretties. What are the go dies you received? I don't think I have those.

Remember - Practice makes perfect (not right away but it will come)

Joanne Lendaro said...

hahaha!! He's feeding the fire! But better fabric than other "vices", right? LOVE all of your pictures, even the funny feathers they take tons of practice, I NEVER did "get it" thank goodness my computer can do them now. You have got to make something with the little house die, I need to see it being used so I can justify buying it. I WANT it!!

Sasha said...

How did I miss this post with all of the pretties!!!! You have such a great enabler LOL!!! Happy Anniversary to you both!!!

AnnieO said...

Beauties! What a lovely husband you have--he knows your crafty passion can't be held back :) Happy Anniversary to you--we've got an anniversary this month too, 27 years.

Melinda Cornish said...
