sewing humor and a little extra

I thought you all might get a kick out of this one. This little goodie was part of a gift from my mother-in-law, something she passed down to me:

A funny little magnet for my fridge.  I guess we’re not the only ones who hoarded fabrics, this magnet has to be at least 20 some years old…
And I added a little something to my sewing space.  This lovely signed print from Heather Ross which I so awesomely acquired through her studio sale last fall.  And if you want some of her prints too, I just saw the other day that she now is offering some for sale on her website, how exciting!

Have a great weekend everyone.

    That is so funny! Only one who is addicted to fabric can appreciate. Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend. can’t wait to see what else you whip up this week. The pillow case dress was great I really liked the color combination.

    Ha, Ha, too funny. I think that magnet says it all. I’m well on my way.

    Love the print. I’m tempted to get one with the girls and horses – love that fabric.

    funny, funny! But, to play the devil’s advocate, I’ve considered that by the time I die (well down the road, let’s hope) whomever is around may find my fabric well nigh tasteless. I hate to think of it not being loved and used like it should. Ok, I know the magnet is just silly and funny. But, I guess I just really, really want to USE my fabric! fabric love.

    That print is me with my Flynn in a bike basket!
    I have been having thoughts lately about how awful it would be to leave my family with 500 yards of fabric to deal with…I need to stop buying and get sewing!

    I think sewing styles may change…but the fundamentals and love of fabric endure. What a great print!

    How fun to know how much you have in common with your MIL! And the print – cool – don’t know how I missed seeing that one when she put the prints on her site, but it’s great Anna!

    That button is awesome!!
    So is the print!
    I was lucky enough to get in on her last sale as well but apparently there was a mix up with my address and so I got a phone call from Heather Ross while I was noisily bathing my children to iron it out!!
    “Hi this is Heather Ross” “. . . Hi? . . . ” It was super crazy.

    My mom has the same quote in her sewing room. I have always thought it was so funny!

    Thanks for the info on the Heather Ross prints, Anna. I just ordered the Playing Horses II print for my youngest’s room. It is too adorable to pass up.

    That print is the perfect thing to put a smile on your face every time you look at it. The quote on that magnet would be so cute stitched into a quilt block.
