I’ve been busy on a project which I’ll reveal very soon but in the meantime I managed to spend a little more money on some eye candy.

Imagine my delight when I found an online source for current designer fabric in Canada. Now imagine the added bonus that this source is just 15 minutes from my home. I met Pam the owner of MadAboutPatchwork today. We had tea and talked fabric and blogging, then made our way to her “fabric store” in the basement. It was a hard decision what to bring home and what to leave behind.

The selection I chose is part of the Pretty Bird Fabric collection by Michael Miller Fabrics. The designer is Pillow and Maxfield.

I love the beautiful bold colours. I picked up some coordinating Kona Solids to round out the collection. I’m not sure what it will turn into just yet. It will sit on my shelf above the sewing machine tantalizingly until a project reveals itself.
