Sewing and keeping secrets

Whew.  Can't believe how fast the days are flying by!  This past weekend was busy with Thanksgiving ...and between the grocery shopping, baking, cooking, cleaning and planning I managed a quick visit to the local fabric shop (it is next door to one of the food shops I had to get some supplies from, so that's pretty convenient ;o).  I had a specific project in mind, so I stuck close to my list in choosing fabrics for only that project (even though everything in the store was on sale... oh, my... a lot of temptation!). 
  Here's my selection:
These beauties have already been cut and stitched into something new, but I'm afraid you will just have to wait a little longer before I can share with you.  I'm pretty excited about what I've been making, so keeping it a secret is tough.
Actually, there's been lots of behind the scenes sewing ... which is why I've disappeared for the past week.   I'm working on some deadlines here, so wish me some speedy sewing success.  I need it. ;o)   Don't worry, I will soon be able to show my secret sewing projects with you.  I may even have some finishes on some not-so-secret sewing projects to share soon too, but for that to happen, I best get back to my machine.
Happy sewing!


  1. Pretty combination of fabrics. Looking forward to seeing what you're up to.

  2. Looks like you've struck gold.... we'll be watching for the unfolding!

    That fabric shop next to the food store reminds me of a friend who called the 'Handy Bakery' in her neighbourhood "The Too Handy Bakery".

  3. OOoOOO yummy fabrics - I can't wait to see what you came up with to use them! Stuck to a list while shopping --- hmmmm - is that possible ... or probable? ;)
