My name is Kat & Im a fabric-holic....

Is there anything sweeter or more exciting than the smell of new fabric?
Prints or solids?????
or raw, unfinished wood just awaiting the feel of your brushes?

Ohhhh the possibilities...the potential...the ideas!!!! To Take a half yard of blank osnaburg, & then to see it after a little sewing, stitching, a little painting, shading & highlighting, & then final touches with artist pencils, ooohhh the birthing process just excites me. I have been creating dolls, bunnys, chicks, & have been having the best time painting wooden eggs. Ive been painting little saltbox houses, willow trees, & grazing sheep on these eggs. I sit them on a lil wooden holder, that I stain and tie a small strip of homespun fabric to.
So although its dark, chilly, and pouring rain outside, my spirit is embracing the up coming spring thyme.
The laundrys done, grocery shopping done, dinner menu planned, bills have been paid....Nothin but me, new fabric & supplies, great ideas, and a song in my heart...."Im singin in the rain"....

I love goin' to the fabric store! Then when I come home, I like to lay everythin' out across my kitchen table and just stare at it before I put it away. :> )
