Happy Mail.

Don't you just love it when anything other than bills arrive in the mail?  I know I do!  And my favourite kind of mail is fabric :)  (Big surprise hey?!)  So when this gorgeous Riley Blake fabric arrived I just had to share.  Isn't it beautiful?  It's Bohemian Festival by Lila Tueller.  The colours are vibrant and fresh - nothing less than you would expect from Riley Blake fabrics

 After admiring it... for longer than I should have I have hit the sewing machine to do some 'work' and absolutely love how this quilt is coming together.  The fabric is so soft and wonderful to work with.
What am I sewing you might be wondering? Well I am retesting a pattern I showed earlier on the blog and hoped to release at Sydney AQM but my littlest princess (a mummies girl) has slowed progress a bit because she has been 'a normal baby' and still wakes numerous times through the night, has reflux and is super clingy to mum so sorry to say although I love my job, being a mum is my first and best job at the moment (I digress).  I wanted to retest the pattern to be sure all the kinks are ironed out before releasing it - and I wanted Bohemian Festival to be the fabrics used for the quilt cover. 

Hubby was awesome on Saturday and took the girls for 5 hours to give me some uninterrupted sewing time and I made some good progress.  Fingers crossed the girls will be kind to me this week and allow me some more time to sew and hopefully finish the quilt top.
