SNOW SNOW SNOW and New Fabric

Well, it's been a very snowy day! We were to get 8 to 10 inches and i'm not sure exactly how much we had, but it was alot. Here's a picture taken out the window towards the pine tree and you can see the snow coming down. It snowed most of the morning and finally stopped about 2:00. But it's January in Ohio, so it can just keep snowing!

So...in my previous post i titled it New Fabric and Previous Quilts...but forgot to post on the new fabric...DUH! Here is some beautiful fabric i bought at the Red Rooster this weekend. I was going to do it with the Crazy Eight pattern, but now i'm thinking i'll hold on to it for a while and see if something else comes along. I was thinking of purchasing another lavender from this collection so it's not too over-powered with peach and coral, but now that i look at it, i sorta like how it looks. I think there may be just enough lavender. It's the Gypsy Rose collection by Moda.

and here is the Christmas fabric i purchased...it was 40% off and it just struck me as pretty. I think the paisley could be used not just as Christmas material, but I saw a quilt made of stockings at Busy Little Quilter and thought these would be pretty for that also. It is on Amanda's December 3rd post and it is adorable!!

this too is Christmas fabric...

Have a great day!!!

Love the fabric. I love orange shades as a favorite for putting together. It's so cheerful.
Yes, snow and more snow here in Ontario just north of you across the lake. I don't know where we are going to put it all! Just the thought of it melting is mind boggling, lots of flooding to come I think. Lovely post as usual.

How I'd love to live where we received frequent snow falls, but alas Oklahoma just doesn't fit into that catagorey. Lovely fabrics, always nice when you can get them at a discounted price.
