New Fabric from London - LIBERTY!

Sew, I haven't been sewing at all for ages ... I hit a block after all the Christmas sewing and the purple quilt. Too much for me ... I did make my swap blocks, but that is really it. Since my youngest son is home for spring break, I won't get any done this week either, but next week, we are going to our timeshare at the beach and we are all in need of some relaxation! (Yes, I did just back from London, but that was an all out walk-fest ... fun, but I'm still tired!) Sew, I am taking my machine, taking blocks I finished years ago but never got put together and finishing the blocks and hope to start putting that quilt together.... that said, I have been on a fabric diet since September ... been doing fairly well, but had to buy at Liberty ... way too expensive, but the most wonderfully soft an beautiful fabrics ... got carried away! Back on the diet now! My camera is dying so these aren't great, but you can see why I loved them, right?

Oh, what a fabulous time with my son! London and Paris were great, but spending time with AJ was even better! I even found a few fabric stores!!! Went to Liberty of London and bought way too much (moneywise) fabric but it is gorgeous! Also found a little, tiny shop in one of the many markets we went to that had only been opened a week so I had to by something from her too!! Happy to be home, but really loved my trip and can't wait to get back! Hmmmm. Means I have to decide what to spend money on ... saving for plane fare or fabric ... oh well, I have a large stash!!! I'll post more pics later! Just been home one day and jet lag has set in!
