Looky, Looky At All The Pretty Colors!!!

I can't even explain the excitement I have right's like Christmas morning as a child! For those of you who couldn't care less about fabric...well, you won't quite get me here but for those of you who understand the addiction to beautiful fabric or at least appreciate'll probably get my joy...maybe!

Anywho, so yesterday I received the loveliest package full of some of the most beautiful fabric, Sandi Henderson's complete collection of Meadowsweet! It took my breath away as I went through each of the 30 different it!

What's even more exciting is that I get to experience this childlike Christmas morning felling two more times in the very near future! I ordered both Heather Bailey's "Nicey Jane" fabric collection (which is oh my gosh gorgeous) and Tanya Whelan's "Dolce" fabric collection! Besides the fact that the Dolce Collection is super lovely, I had to buy that for the name alone...hello...if your last name is Dolce it's only logical that you own the Dolce Collection, right? Yep people, that's a lame excuse but I HAD to have it...don't judge me, okay?!! ;-)

Alrighty, so now that my craziness is being fully displayed, I might as well say that I also received the Heather Bailey COMPLETE Collection of Pop Garden, 63 different designs (I got a KILLER deal on it) and CAN NOT wait to play with it! Yes, I know, I am not only fabric crazy but I have this thing where I have to have every piece of a collection...again, don't judge me!

With all of this confession being spilled out, I'll share with you a few pictures of the new Meadowsweet fabric and the Pop Garden fabric collections! AND, as soon as the Nicey Jane and Dolce collections get here I'll give you a little sneak peak of those, too! Because I know that you just couldn't go on without it, right? Come on people, let me indulge myself in this silliness a little longer...hehehe!

At some point I hope to share some pictures of my WHOLE fabric collection but that will DEFINITELY have to be another time because I have WAY too much fabric for one little lady...let me tell ya! But when I have the time I am determined to photograph all of my beautiful addicitons...

Here a picture of the only get one pic of this because I'll be posting a few new rag quilts from it soon ~

And here is a more indepth look at the Pop Garden Collection ~

Pretty, huh?!!

Have a SUPER Day!

So Many Plans, Too Little Time

Okay, so it's been WAY too long since I last blogged...a lot has been going on! From getting a new sewing machine, tons of new fabrics and life in general, I feel like I just haven't had a moment to just sit and type away.

***OH...and to all my Facebook friends who read this, I have my blog set up so that it sends a copy to my Facebook. So, if you were wondering why in the world Mary Carole creates these Facebook Notes about herself and her crafty stuff...there ya go! It's my blog! If you want to see the real blog just go to It's much prettier over here and you can become a fan if you so desire ;-)!***

Anywho, life has been busier than 24 hours in a day allows. The first half of Thanksgiving week we took the kids to Disneyland and then came back to Vegas to celebrate Thanksgiving at home before we went on a week long stay with my mom and family to the Fabulous Las Vegas Strip (7 miles from our home...funny huh?) We stayed at a beautiful condo with 3 bedrooms so that everyone had a little space and just enjoyed our time together while celebrating my mom's 60th birthday! Needless to say I am a little (A LOT) exhausted from all of this go, go, going and as of this moment I haven't even got our Christmas tree up and haven't really started gift shopping! Being that we have 3 kids I am REALLY behind! Yikes!
As for my store and crafts...I have so much fun stuff coming up but most likely it won't really get started until after the holidays have ended! I can't wait!
Here are a few of my newer rag quilts that have been in my store for a while but that I haven't put on my blog. Some of you have already seen these but for my own records I am posting them here so that I can look back in years to come and see them so I apologize in advance for the repetiton :-)!

The High Society Rag Quilt ~

The Love To Learn and Play Rag Quilt ~

The Busy Little Bee Quilt Within a Rag Quilt (the pictures do not do this one justice). I have used two fabrics in each square creating a fun box quilt within each square! ~

I'm planning on posting some different fabrics that I will be creating some fun stuff with but I'll leave that for another blog!! I hope that you are all enjoying this Holiday Season!
