It's been so long since I have had the joy of receiving a personal fabric bundle - one for me, not for my shop. Starting a business requires all sorts of discipline, one in particular has been having to put myself on a fabric diet for a fairly boring reason - a budget. What is she talking about? She has a fabric shop! I know what you're thinking, it sounds crazy. In my fabric-less self pity I liken myself to a person being on a diet while having to contend with the temptations of working in a French patisserie every day. Ha!
I haven't touched my shelves so you will understand one of the reasons I was so SO excited when I received this delicious little bundle of Strawberry Biscuit samples from Riley Blake yesterday. I have to earn my keep though and I am in the process of enjoying planning a little secret squirrel sewing - it's a little project I am super excited about because I get super excited about anything to do with fabric and sewing, but also because I think Elea Lutz and I must be kindred spirits, her fabric and designs, even her blog and website is just so cute and so the style I love....*sigh*
While I am in the middle of making my plans, I will point out something I feel it would be a disservice to the sewing-button loving community if I didn't...........Elea has designed some superbly sweet little button display cards for you to keep your collection on AND they are available, as I type, on her blog as a FREE download.
You are most welcome...if you are still here...though I do suspect you might have run off to get your button cards...
