I love Fridays. There’s something inherently magical about this day with its promise of adventures ahead. Before I get caught up in the excitement of the weekend, I want to share some fun finds that arrived at my house this week.
This is Moda Home’s Sliced Bread Blackbird Sewing Roll. Isn’t the Blackbird Design sampler fabric wonderful? I found it at Bella Quiltworks here in Tucson. The item isn’t listed at the Moda web site, but you can buy it at Snowy River Quilts.
The Moda web site offers free quilting patterns and some excellent reference documents you can download—look in their Fun Stuff section.
This gorgeous fabric arrived from the fabulous Karen (Mrs. Kwitty’s Cottage blog). She sent a 2009 calendar refill for the adorable agenda/day planner she made and surprised me with this extra lovely gift wrapped around it—even her tag is charming. I’ve been using that agenda/day planner this whole year and just love it, now I’m ready for 2009. You can find them at her Etsy store.
These beautiful cartellas (Italian for portfolios), one for bills to pay and one for to-do items, were made by Lesley (Small Meadow Press store and The Bower blog). Lesley has elevated irksome tasks from the mundane to the celebratory. The inside of each cartella is as lovely as the exterior.
Lesley also made the card on the left, inside is a sweet note from her. Aren’t the index cards the prettiest you’ve ever seen? And just look at her adorable little tags.
Have a great weekend!
