thank you liz scott!

i very rarely buy new fabrics.  i just have a hard time doing it.  i use old t-shirts, button downs, pants, curtains... whatever i can get my hands on.  while i love doing this, it sometimes makes my fabric selection... well... quite boring.  you just don't get the same fun prints from a men's dress shirt, that you do from all those new beautiful and fun fabrics out there.

and that's where liz scott comes in.

a few weeks ago, i was searching for some craft room design inspiration.  and in a flickr group, i found some really neat stuff...

  which led me to some really neat fabrics at...


and, as luck would have it... she's local!!!  so, i made contact, asked if she had any scraps hanging around, and after quick ride over (and an introduction to a sweet little baby girl... who totally makes me want to start thinking about number 2...) this is what i came home with!

leo then insisted on being in the picture...


i'm so excited to have some new life added to my projects!  soooo many cute fabrics... so many cute colors... and so wonderful to have met liz!  check out her site, and her shops... wonderfluff and paper pie.

thanks, liz!

Thank you for the shout out Heather! You are very welcome for the fabric. Sorry, I am just seeing this now :) I know I don't have to tell you about how life with baby leads to mom being waaaayyyyyy behind on her blog reading. In fact, Rylie is trying to type right along with me right now.
