Since I moved to The County with Gene in June of 2000, my home has always been called Willow Garden.
Larry and I decided that this one would also be known as Willow Garden.
All we lacked was a willow tree.
We solved that problem today with the help of Mike at TrimPro Property Maintenance .
Life is good!
I am trying NOT to think about fabric and quilting until I have things more under control at the new house.
I have a couple of decks to build and a small fish pond to install ... and eave trough to have replaced ... and dricore sub-flooring to go down in case water gets into the basement again.
In the mean time, I seem to spend too much time on the net looking at fabric shops. An even bigger problem is the ease with which an order can be placed ... ;-)
My latest find is a shop in South Dakota that carries a wide selection of Australian aboriginal designs.
Check them out if you like interesting fabric and fun colours ... Heartsong Quilts. They seem like really nice folks.
They sell sets of a dozen sampler fat quarters of the Aussie prints, and give you 13! I ordered three sets ... 39 fat quarters!
I LOVE them ... but I am not even thinking about what I might make with them ... well, not much anyway ... :-)
It is hard to capture the heart and soul of fabric with a camera, but here are some pictures of the latest additions to my g-r-o-w-i-n-g fabric stash.
I'm thinking that I should be able to pull out lots of purple from this selection ... but, as I said, I am trying not to think about it.
Off to put it away.
Out of sight.
Life is good!
