Dreaming Of Martinique...

I finished a project today, but because it's a gift, I can't show it to you quite yet. I'm sure you do what I do when you're in between projects, or have just finished one and are too scattered to start another. We dream on our stash! Today, I'm dreaming of Martinique. Beautiful fabrics reminiscent of a romantic Caribbean island. Cool ocean breezes, coral reefs and fragrant blossoms.
I can dream on this collection, assembled for the applique' quilt I'll be finishing soon, with all of its soft and feminine colors, or perhaps...
those French General fabrics I've been contemplating for a table runner for our antique oak table?
I always return to these soft colors...restful, quiet, subtle...they all speak to me, each with their own voices. Calming my mind. Focusing my thoughts. Preparing me to start anew with a sense of purpose. Excited for a fresh start. Where will I go next? Where will you go next?
Don't forget to enter the Vanilla Extract Giveaway if you haven't yet. You can read the tutorial and, just by leaving a comment, be entered for the bottle I made in the tutorial. The giveaway button is near the top of my left sidebar. Good luck, Girlfriends!

love your stash... yours is so light and airy.. I am in No. Ohio and my stash runs to darker, primitive colors... so nice to see the other side of the spectrum.

I just love all those fabrics Donna, but Martinque and the French General fabrics have to be my favorites. I'm too afraid to cut mine - I just love looking at them in their tied bundle.

Your fabrics are so pretty and I would have a hard time deciding what I wanted to do next. Each bundle is so pretty. I will be waiting to see what you do next. It will be interesting that much I am sure. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.
