Sometimes, when I 'm lucky...

See there, tucked in so sweetly... a wee Mango, going for a ride at the sewing machine.
Before, I show my most recent acquisitions, all mommies should at least glance at this site. I found it enlightening and so very real.
There was a sale on decorator weight fabrics... $5/yd!! I am such a glutton.
I finally bought a yard of these...I had been looking, but then the local store got them in and wow they do look THAT good in real life.
Must buy pinks!!
Still can't escape the aquas!!
And to top it off some beautiful new solids. The orange I had to buy because it is called "Mango". The two drab ones are actually lovely colors of grey, a light one and a charcoal. I am excited to start something new... but then again I always LOVE the starting!!

I saw this post, I just love the colors that Lily used!! I have never tried this pattern because I thought it was "too easy"???? I have to say that, today, I am so wooed by the simplicity of it.

I have been working on a large quilt (on and off for about 3 months) it is for my little Blondie. He was so excited when I let him hang a swap quilt on his wall that I knew it was time for him to have his own bed size quilt. I finished another big chunk of the front piecing. I will share it when I have some of the bigger pieces put together. I am very happy with how it is turning out.

Well, in the famous last words of a new mother, I am off to feed the baby. Thanks for being so sweet to little Mango last week, she had such a lovely time blogging.

hee! hee! hee! so many of your new fabrics grace my stash too! I love that scissors fabric and must get back to the store for more. $5 decorator fabric - oh, impossible to resist. And only yesterday I took out that wild pink Kaffe with the round flowery things and began ironing it this way and that. And the wee mango - oh the wee mango - I'm still knitting! And the longer I take, the longer she'll be and the bigger I'll have to make it :-) But I only have twelve more rows before I get to the shoulder straps - thank god! and I found something very dear for her today whilst thrifting - I think you'll like it!
