And the winner of the giveaway is Bonnie of Institches with Bonnie! Congratulations Bonnie, and I hope you enjoy your necklace!

Isn't this the most fun fabric ever?! Well, most fun non-repro fabric ever. :)

It's the lining fabric for the Prairie Crocus Tote. I may have to buy some extra. I didn't waste time waiting for the results of my poll last post, but dove right in. I would have had the tote done, but discovered I didn't have a wool thread that matched the base, so I sent off a quick order. It came yesterday, so I can get back to it tomorrow.

And here are the hexies I have basted for the Dutch Beauty. There are 4 different ones, but luckily the pattern has a good color chart, so I don't have to worry about the layout.

I kind of took the day off after a visit to the vet this morning with Rufus for a checkup. Anyone with a cat doesn't need an explanation for the need for rest after that. ;) I'm ready to get back to sewing tomorrow, though, and as soon as I get the tote done, I'll get the silk thread project on the frame and start working on that too.

Enjoy the weekend!

Wow! How fun to open my mail this morning and find out I had won your give away. OOO -- decisions, decisions! I love the necklaces too! Thanks for offering this opportunity.

And, yes, I love this fabric -- bright and fun. I seem to be drawn to almost every piece of fabric I see. Sigh. I'm looking forward to seeing your finished tote too.
