Random Ramblings

Happy Monday!! Wow, it was nearly 90 degrees today! I did some running around downtown and was loving it! The sun was shining, the wind was blowing and everyone I encountered was just so nice. I love those days, especially when they are Mondays! There was a threat of some severe weather today so I am so happy it held off until after all of my errands! The humidity was up a bit today but I tell you, it didn't bother me very much! All in all, a great day! I saw a picture of Amy Butler's new lines coming out this year. Daisy Chain is adorable and August Fields (home dec weight) is fantastic! Kind of a 70's flower child look to some of it with a nice contemporary feel. Daisy Chain is very soothing and calm. I don't normally carry home dec fabric but I may make an exception in this case. August Fields is so beautiful, I may need it all for myself! We will definately carry Daisy Chain and I will let you know as soon as it is available! Amy Butler is also coming out with a line of solids to match her lines which I will also carry as soon as they are available! Soccer was cancelled tonight so I am going to enjoy a nice relaxing evening with the family!

I'm in Heaven!

That song is going through my head..."Heaven....I'm in heaven...". I am up to my eyeballs in Amy Butler fabric! It's taking all of me not to take my rotary cutter and start some fantastic quilt or handbag! I am saving it for you! All of this fabric is listed in my online store, http://www.ajoyfulsoulfabrics.com/. Check it out. I just had my friend Stacy over and we are binding a T-shirt quilt she made for her husband. It rocks! She did an awesome job! I am very sad that she is leaving our area soon but that is military life. You finally find someone you can waste hours with laughing, eating and/or shopping...not necessarily in that order, then they up and leave! I will miss her terribly.

Our new fabric display arrived yesterday, didn't make it in one piece so we may end up with a new one. I can't wait to get it put together so this fabric has a permanent home. Well, I better get to school and pick up the little one.
