Spring Fever

pink rose2In past years about this time, I was always in a frenzy. A happy plant-buying frenzy. As soon as it warmed up and the flowers put on their show, my time was spent desperately trying to get the ones I bought the last weekend in the ground so I could justify buying new ones in the coming weekend. Our yard is now in full bloom so I should be out there digging right now!

But for some reason I have yet to make a trip to the local nursery. I have some gardening plans in my head but when I have free time I find myself doing something that has to do with sewing instead. I haven’t decided if this is good or bad. I am a little sad because I really love gardening and I wish I could get a bit of that back. But today when I had free time, I found myself in the fabric section… again.

I have to say the happiness that buying new fabric brings me is pretty equivalent to the happiness that gardening brings me. I just get less sunshine.

I am going to assume some of you love to look at pretty fabrics too. So here you go. My new fabric acquisitions…

Aren’t they beautiful! My little fabric garden.

  1. Love them!!! Where did you get? Local place or chain? I want more but have plenty so I can’t justify buying right now.

    • I probably shouldn’t have either but I used up a ton of my scraps recently on a project I am working on so I justified it that way! They are all from Hobby Lobby. I haven’t fallen in love with any fabric shops here yet so I still go to chains. There are a few small ones I haven’t visited yet though so I am still hopeful there is a little gem out there somewhere!

  2. Ooh, Breane, pretty fabric! I have the same dilemma, and I don’t have three little ones in the mix. My hydrangeas need a trim, the peonies could use some fertilizer, and the backyard is neglected!
