New Flower Petals!
Sometimes I have a clear vision and plan for what I want to dye next. Sometimes that vision turns itself into something totally different. That was the case with this week's new fabric. It turned into something so much better than what I envisioned!
I wanted a variety of beautiful rich reds for my new Stash Pack of fat eighths. What I got were some amazing textures and as I ironed the fabric all I could think about was my friend, Becky, and her amazing applique. The textures in these fabrics are amazing and are perfect for fussy cutting applique shapes, like flower petals.
Ironing took twice as long because I kept playing with the fabrics. Stash Packs are perfect for applique because you get lots of variety for the same price as yardage. Each Stash Pack has 10 fat eighths.
Extended Fabric of the Week
Since I'm on a Stash Pack kick AND there's still time for Christmas gift shopping, I've extended the sale on the Crayon Box Stash Pack for another week. This pack is great for people participating in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Check out the RSC project that Alycia made with a Color Wheel Stash Pack here.

I can see why ironing took longer. When I dye fabric, the ironing takes longer than usual because i have to just stop and look. There are so many lovely possibilities.

Vicki, that fabric is a thing of beauty, and I think there will be quite a demand for it. You should be extremely happy with what you have created!!
