A bit of sewing and some fabric!

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well. It has been a busy week for me. I worked that last 6 days and I am very excited to have the next three days off. I have lots of housework to catch up on, but I do hope to get some sewing time in too.

I did do a little bit of sewing. I have been working on my March Schnibbles quilt. I have a few blocks done, and a bunch that are half done. I have to cut more fabric to finish this. I am using the Snippets fabric by American Jane. I bought these last year. I have used this fabric for other projects, but I had quite a bit left over. I thought it would be perfect for this pattern. Hopefully I will get the top done before the end of the month deadline.

I also got a package in the mail today from Sew Love Fabrics etsy store. I bought a scrap bag and two metre cuts of some "Apple" fabric by Timeless Treasures. I was really excited to see what I got in my scrap bag. I got some beautiful pieces and I can't wait to use some of these.

I celebrated my birthday on Wednesday. I had to work evening shift, but my husband gave me some money to buy more fabric. He knows me very well. LOL! I ordered some from the Fat Quarter Shop. It was all on sale too. I should get it next week. Can't wait!!! I hope you all have a great night!

Hugs

Ariane
