Watch out girls, I may have the best husband...


So equilter sent me a teaser gift certificate. They were willing to give me $6 if I signed up a "friend." So I signed up hubby & they gave him $5!


He got me two of these Laurel Burch Panels.
You see, I have a lot of Laurel Burch - the cat charm collector in me had to get some of each....
But I did not have much of any... partial fat quarters for the most part.
But when Holly sent me this:
Kitty Capers
I knew that something Laurel Burch would be perfect for the back (the border is a Laurel Burch cat print)... & so it sat because I only had "scraps"...
Now I have a good bit of that back on its way from equilter. I shall use my GC to get the rest.
Thanks equilter. Thanks hubby. Thanks again Holly. Thanks Laurel, you will be missed.
& heck, there is a baby carriage on that panel, maybe that will be the spark... (If not we are going back to the specialist after the cruise in January.)

Gorgeous fabric, it's going to make a superb back. I hope the carriage is the spark for you, crossing fingers.

Now that is what I call bright and cheerful fabric! Wonderful.

It's good to have "friends!" It is a gorgeous fabric. I gave my brother a cross stitch angel, and somehow when I was making it, I kept thinking of it as a fertility symbol. It worked for them. I'm sure the carriage is a fertility symbol for you.

Yeah! A cruise in January. I think that's the perfect time to get some sunshine.

I got that same e-mail. She didn't tell me if I signed up she'd get a coupon. Oh well.

Ah! That Laura Burch is beautiful. Very clever of you "using" your husband as your friend. (Well, he is isn't he?) Your box of fabrics looks like something I could jump into!

That's wonderful fabric, Amy :) I usually cheap out and use muslin for backing.

I have tons of Laurel Burch fabric but seem to have a block as to how to use it. I love the stuff, all of it! But I'm afraid it will be forever stashed away... sigh, seems to be my mode of operation lately.
