New Fabrics for Stash plus Kaylee's photo

I just got two packages of fat quarters that I'm very pleased with. I ordered some fabrics to see if one would work as backing for my WOTB quilt when it is assembled. I got the name of the online shop from one of the other WOTB members: . She informed us that they had some nice fabrics with Christian symbols that we might like. They are quite attractive and good quality but I haven't decided yet whether I want to use one of them for this project.

I also received my monthly feature fabrics from Grandma's Attic and just love them. The are from the Kimiko's Garden Chinoiserie collection by Benartex and are based on the fine hand-painted porcelain of China in lovely blues and yellows. These deserve a really special project. So many ideas, so little time!

I wanted to share what the Easter Bunny brought me. This is a photo of my first greatgranddaughter Kaylee at 5 years. She is wearing the pretty dress that her Aunt Robyn gave her for Christmas and looks like a proper little lady, which she really has to much energy to be. Since Aunt Robyn only had a son, she enjoys getting dresses for Kaylee, and she sure has great taste. Kaylee will get a little brother around the end of August and we couldn't be more excited.

Thanks for the tip on the fabric site for Christian (and many other) fabrics. It looks interesting.

Isn't she a doll? I dream someday of having a granddaughter to dote on, as I had all boys!;)
Thanks for the link! I love these fabrics you have picked out!

Wow, a great granddaughter! What a great family you have!
