Owlie and new fabrics

I met the postman when I was going to the quiltshop today. And I noticed he put a big envelope in my mailbox. So I grabbed it and took it with me to the quiltshop. And look ........Owlie is tired after flying all the way from australia to Norway in just a few days. Clever boy. So he had to sit on all the new bolts of japaneese fabrics to rest a while.
Look at all these beautiful Lecien fabrics!!!!!!!!!!!! And this is just a few of them.
And these 15 fabrics climbed down in my bag to follow me home.
I'm collecting for a class I'm going to in february. But I'm afraid I have to cut into them very very soon.
Finished my little angle stitchery yesterday and now I have traced another little one to do. And perhaps I try my rotary cutter tomorrow. Driving the car yesterday was not so good for my shoulder so I have a little bit pain today. So today.......just reading books and watch tv.
Saying for today:
Behind every sewer is a huge pile of fabric

How lucky the little own came to Elverum....The new fabrics looks just as great as they looked in the fair....and my purse weeps ;-)

Nei så gøy, er det du som har designet lille Mona. Ja hun har jeg sydd opptil flere ganger, i duse farger denne gangen da. Kjøpte mønsteret på Lille stasjon for mange år siden. Noe sier meg at du er godt kjent der. Så fine japanske stoffer du har kjøpt. Desverre har jeg mye mere stoff enn jeg rekker å sy.... må dessverre sy med de gamle stoffene før jeg anskaffer meg for mye nytt.Mange knallfarger, og jeg som ikke er knall i det hele tatt. Noen ganger lurer jeg på hva jeg tenkte på, men en er jo i stadig forandring. Takk for titten på bloggen min og ha en fin quilte-uke.

That is one cute little owl. Sorry to hear about your shoulder. I think fabric and stitchery gets us up and running so I can imagine that you are finding it hard to rest :O)

Oh what a cute little owlie! I'm sure he just loved the visit to the quilt store. Take care of your shoulder and enjoy your day of rest.

Jeanne said...

Cute little owl! It was be very tempting working in a quilt shop every time new bolts come into the store. I would probably owe more than I would earn. Your fifteen fabrics are so pretty.

Susan said...

The owl is darling. I love those fabrics. You showed some Lecien fabrics before, and I can't find a source for them over here in the states. I'm probably not searching for the right thing. =( Can you tell me what is printed in the selvedge of the fabric?

Nina In Norway said...

I hope the little owl will watch over you and makes sure not to do to much with your arm! It’s a cute typical Australian sample! I have to buy me a big bag, fabrics never jump into mine now!

May K said...

Those fabrics are just beautiful! I could have some of them, yes! They look perfect for a Dear Jane quilt!

Violette said...

Love the fabrics. I can't wait to see what you make out of them.

Owlie is adorable and those fabrics are gorgeous.

Mary Ann said...

Sweet little owl!! And the japanese fabrics are beautiful, as well! I am becoming QUITE addicted to them...!! Here is a pattern for a heart yoyo...the regular ones are done the same way, just using a circle. Usually double the diameter of the finished yoyo. Have fun!! Mary Ann
