Jaime travels a lot for business during the fall and winter months, so she uses those opportunities to seek out new fabric and yarn shops. This past week, she stopped into Windy Moon Quilts in Reno, Nevada. I just love the way they painted the front of the building to look like a giant quilt, don’t you? How clever!
She managed to find a few new cotton prints to add to our ever-growing fabric collection. First up, some holly-berry fabric which will be used to make a holiday gift for someone who shall-not-be-named:
Sorry that the picture is sort of blurry, but the gold dots on the fabric really confused the focus feature on my camera lens…after the 20th picture, I gave up!
She also found this, an homage to our childhood:
Growing up on Long Island, Sunday bagels with lox and cream cheese was a family tradition – one that we still continue to this day. We are going to whip this fabric into some fun little napkins for those long, leisurely brunches. The kids are going to love them!
Speaking of kids, sissy also picked up some sweet holiday-themed fabric:
…which will be sewn into some twirly, Christmas Day skirts for the girlies. We plan on pairing them with some striped tights and long-sleeved t-shirts. That way, they will look nice for pictures, yet will be comfortable enough while sitting on the floor playing with all of their new toys.
This week, Jaime is back in Nevada, and will be stopping into Jimmy Beans Wool – I am off to browse their website and cross reference their stock with my Ravelry queue…
