new fabric!

i was so excited on friday when my package from sew mama sew came! look at all those pretty colors! i could hardly wait to cut into them.

here's a pic from later friday night when i was able to get out some of my other favorite fabrics, along with the new ones, and mix them all together to make new color combinations. this is probably my most favorite part about this job. i absolutely *love* playing with the fabrics and seeing how i can put together fun pieces. it makes me want to make another quilt.

i have already cut and partially assembled over 15 new zippered pouches with these fabrics. they are super cute! now i just need to finish them... that's one of my biggest struggles: not finishing a project before i move on to the next one. before i started the pouches i also had started 15 or 20 more headbands (lots with brown and black combo's). but those are still left undone, along with the pouches, and a custom order still needs to be filled.

so the plan this week: finish headbands first, then the custom order (i'll have to sneak some pics to you - its gonna be soo cute!), then the zippered pouches. i'll be back later to show some progress.

i still have lots of fabric left. what would YOU like me to make out of it?

so funny that we are living parallel lives right now! i love all your new prints. i also have really been into mixing the polka dots and/or stripes with the ever favorite floral. can't wait to see that special order! -emily

Love the new fabric and how industrious are you.... I am trying to sew a cute camera bag but now I am looking at new fabric. Make it stop.
