My Special Assignment

As you can see, I couldn't even wait to take a picture before
I unwrapped this gorgeous bundle!
It's the new line of fabric by 3 Sisters.
I haven't seen a 3 Sisters group that I didn't like. This one
is no exception. I wonderful palate of cream, brown, blue, red and pink.
I get to make a shop sample with these and the little pattern that came with the bundle.
It's all half square triangles. I think you can even
download the pattern at the United Notions web site.
(the pattern shows a really slick way of making the HST's, so it should make up pretty fast)
Ah, so nice.
I haven't gotten to make a shop sample for anyone in a while...
so I really appreciated being asked!

Also, I am happy to say that the hubs is making wonderful
progress this week in his recovery.
So, this really is a great week!

Sherri and I are getting lots of pictures of finished Full House tops for AYOS!
It is going to be a great parade!
If you are playing along... 
Don't forget to email one of us a picture and a link to your post showing your project.

I'm so glad to hear your hubby is doing well. I have been keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers. Besides being happy that 'the hubs' recovery is coming along, I'm really a tad envious of your beautiful Papillon. I picked it as my favorite new upcoming fabric and have never wavered. It is sooooo gorgeous. Can't wait to see the finished project.

I'm so happy to hear that your DH is recovering well. What a stressful time for you and your family. How wonderful that things are looking up. Have fun working on that project with such lovely fabric!

Well, I wouldn't have thought to grab my camera first either! LOL Great fabrics to play with! I'm happy to read your hubby is recovering well too. Have a great weekend!

Lesley said...

That Papillion is going to be gorgeous.

That's cool that you get to play with the new 3 Sisters fabric. I love all of the 3 Sisters fabrics too. They have a very pretty Christmas fabric coming out this year. Good news about your hubby getting better. I just emailed you photos of my Full House quilt. It's one of my favorite Schnibbles quilts and looks great hanging on the wall in my bedroom.

Yummy! I love this new aqua, red and gray trend in fabrics.

Happy Hubby is doing well.
Love your stack of Papillon fabric.
I loved it too, I just got a layer cake & some charm packs of that line.

Mary said...

My first thought was if you're making a shop sample, your husband must be feeling better. I'm really happy to hear that but I'm sure not as happy as you are! Is he home yet? Continued prayers coming your way.

Mary said...

PS - I can't seem to get in to the site for the pattern. Can you send me a direct link? Thanks!

Glad to hear your DH is improving...thinking of you. I have just received my Full House pattern...may not make it for this months parade!

Glad to hear your hubby is feeling better ... and that fabric is just DARLING! Love, love it! :)

Just when I think I don't need any fabric, Moda comes out with Papillon! What is the name of the pattern? The one on the Moda site doesn't have hst's. Thanks.

Carol said...

Oh Sinta I'm so happy that your hubby is doing better and that you're getting some sewing time...you are going to have so much fun doing that one...gorgeous fabric!

Cheryl said...

Great news that your husband is doing well. Love that fabric! Big hugs to you all!

Carrie said...

Hallehooyah! (Yes, I spelled it that way on purpose.)

I'm so glad to read that DH is recovery well ~ though I feel like a crumb for not getting a chance to check in sooner even though a mutual friend has been keeping me up-to-date. The good news is that it's good news, right!?

Prayers. Hugs. Good thoughts. All of the above for you and DH. :)
