This past weekend we had the Crazy 8 shop hop in Idaho and Washington. I went with 4 friends and had a great time. I bought quite a few odds and ends including Terial Magic. I had never heard of it, but I'm anxious to try it. I also bought a Trolley Needle Thread Controller. I hadn't seen one of those either. I just have to get used to using it!
I am making a giant tree skirt and chose these fabrics. I need to add a red, I'm not sure why I didn't think of that, but I need a garnet red since Idaho produces garnets and I have been to a garnet mine. The tree skirt will be representing Idaho. I have a plan, just have to get going on it!I also bought a bag pattern and these fabrics. These are my all time favorite colors, so rich and deep.
I also decided to do the Magic of Christmas sew along from Lisa Bongean. I had this leaf fabric in my stash for YEARS! I found a couple Fairy Frost blues and they looked great and on the shop hop I purchased the silver and lavender Fairy Frost fabrics and made the first block. I am thinking I will just use blue as the accent, perhaps a star setting, but I will see how this progresses.
