I am just bubbling over with excitement at the moment- because not only do I have a church rummage to visit on Friday, but on my way to work this morning I saw a sign for one this Saturday at one of my all time favorites! Seriously- it makes me all nervous and sweaty. I know very weird.

Back to sewing and finds from San Fran. Fat Orange Cat also included these amazing bias trims in my little stash.


They just bring me back! I feel like I am ten when I see these patterns. I am planning an apron and maybe small doll quilt to showcase these great patterns.

These may be old news to some folks, but I am so inspired by these books from Lotta.


Picked 'em up in Japantown in San Fran. Dang I love that place.


I love the photography and the projects.


and my fingers.

This book has me all excited to start printing on fabric. What a better way to use what you have? I have the paints and this weekend I hope to have the time.




I also bought these fabrics while there.

Whhooahhh, so many great things in this post. Love the bias tape - yep, it reminds me of my childhood too! The books look great, and wow I REALLY love that fabric. Can't wait to see what you do with it all :)

oooh look at those fabrics...where pray tell did you find those? Great polaroids too!

Oh my gosh! All of that stuff is beautiful! I've been restraining myself from buying the Lotta Prints book until my "Use What You Have" quarter is over. I just know that, if I make an exception for a book like that, it's going to lead to silkscreening equipment and who knows what all else!

I'm quite jealous you have Japantown near you - an amazing resource - what wonderful finds!

what a great haul! Have you ever checked out the blog stitchindye? There's a link on my blog, but she just posted about potato prints on fabric. She's got some great stuff on her site
