So busy

The urge to quilt has been getting to me lately but I have been so busy with work, kids, husband, house and college classwork that I haven't had anytime to.  I have been able to work on a few hexies while laying in bed and I did avoid homework and housework for about 30 min. yesterday to do some machine quilting on a christmas present....but I have a quilting itch that won't go away.  You can bet your buttons I will be spending lots of time in my sewing room over Christmas break.

I have been buying some fabric though......some lovely stuff that I can't wait to play with.  Here are a few pictures.
 From Pink Castle Fabrics....here is the stash builder bundle for the month of Oct.  Suppose to be lime green but a lot of these have a mustard yellow ting to them and I don't really care for the shade that well....  but the lime green ones sure are pretty.
 Here is the gothic line...a few of each.....love them.  Didn't get to work with them at halloween but maybe for next halloween I will have something done with them.
 Here is a variety of things I picked up.  The raven fabric (can't remember the line) The grey print and the black print are from Parson's line and then the fat quarter bundle which I can't remember the name of at the moment (all of which I got from Intrepid Thread)
I already had the print fabric, which I am dying to cut into even though I don't know what quilt pattern I want to use.  But  I picked up the solids on the top of the bundle to add with the prints.  Think whatever I do will turn into a super cute quilt for me to snuggle under!!!  Love the foxes on the prints!!


**oh, on a side note....I have made a new friend which is saying a lot since I am friendly to everyone but have very few close friends.  Think she and I will be good friends for sometime which makes me happy!
