My Favs on Thursdays | Fabric Crush

Jan 9, 2014

It’s Thursday!  (Holy crap, is it really Thursday?)  This has been a hard week to get through, only because it’s the first full week of work I’ve had to endure since before Christmas.  The holidays being on Wednesdays broke up my work weeks and it’s been nice.  But now?  Five days in a row at a desk job?  Gross!

Rambling aside…it’s time for another Thursday link-up with Nicole and Meghan for ‘My Favs’.  Join in the linky party if you want to play along!

I have this weird habit of scouring the internet for fabrics and then developing major crushes on some of the designs.  Yes, I know: NERD ALERT!  I’ve got a million ideas for sewing projects but never enough time and sometimes I create new projects just to fit these fabrics into it.

My FAVs this week are in the form of my current fabric crushes.  All designer items.  All super adorable and some are already ordered and on their way to my house.  It’s a shame but I live in an area that doesn’t have much in the way of fabric shopping.  There is a JoAnn’s in a neighboring town but you can’t really find the quality and designs that I’m looking for.  TGFIS (thank goodness for internet shopping).

Michael Miller & Robert Kaufman are apparently my fabric designing favorites right now.  All six of these are made by one of those two and I want more!  More, I tell you!  Give me all the fabric!!
