Hey everyone. I have imported this blog from Typepad because I am starting something different on there.
I am no longer having a “craft” blog it’s broader than that and although craft posts will be included there’s so much more I am interested in that I want to post along with family stories.
If you would like to visit the new blog you can visit me at http://www.staci.typepad.com/journal

Happy Valentines Day everyone.
We spent Thursday filling out valentines then the rest of the week/weekend snowed in. I hope the boys get to celebrate Valentines day on Monday. We had some really cute valentines called Manga Me. I think they came from Target
but not sure my memory is giving out.
I made Kody fill out everyones name by himself. He did pretty good except the two Elizabeths we had. I ended up doing theirs. Still, we had good time and Kody got to practice his writing skills.
Aren't they cute?

I don't really know what started the obsession. I didn't start my fabric hoarding with Japanese prints, I blame Superbuzzy. I was content with my Amy Butler & Jennifer Paganelli designs until I heard about Superbuzzy. I bought a few prints there and was hooked on the cuteness. I mean how can anyone resist these adorable little fairytale prints. I bought all these from This & That From Japan.
I found the Peter Pan & Cinderella prints first and immediately knew I had to have them. Then, I discovered these older fairytale prints I thought were discontinued.
I already have a custom order lined up with the Red Riding Hood fabric. I am not sure if they are discontinued or not but I have seen them cropping up on Etsy and Nuno so they may have been re-printed??

Just a preview of the quilt I am working on. It's almost complete I just wasn't able to finish quilting it. Christian loves it though and is still using it until I am done. He calls it his fabric blanket.
I'll post more photos when it's finished.
( Not sure why he looks so surprised. Something must have happened on Mickey)

I have been really good lately not purchasing fabric but a recent trip to the Asheville Cotton Company ruined it all.
They had Nicey Jane which thrilled me because usually they don't carry Heather Bailey fabric. I had to order her last collection off the internet and was really disappointed with the pattern size when they arrived. The prints were so large I was unable to use them so ended up doing a blog giveaway and getting rid of them. Nicey Jane does have some rather large prints as well but since I could see them in person I was able to pick out the pieces that were usable.
As the nice ladies were cutting my Heather Bailey fabric I moseyed to the childrens section and discovered the cutest fabric line I have seen in that particular store ever!
It's called Frolic from In the Beginning fabric company and has little owls and other forest animals throughout each print.
I only got 4 pieces but will be going back to get a fat quarter stack in the blue colorway for a future boy quilt .
