My Lucky Valentine

My Mr. T. knows that he's a lucky guy.  He's married to me..., but that's just ONE of the reasons that he's so incredibly lucky.

He knows that FABRIC makes me happy, lots and lots of fabric, and he never, ever takes issue with my many purchases.  Heck, he probably thinks that I could be crazy for DIAMONDS or something! He's getting off cheap! But it's fabric that makes my heart go pitter-patter.  Well, and him, of course.  Although we did not "know" each other as children, we did attend the same schools from elementary through high school.  I remember him from when I was 10 years old.  He was the tallest (and handsomest...) boy at at Peachland Elementary.  We started dating when I was 18 and he was 19 and he has been my Valentine ever since, 47 whole years worth.  That's some kind of a record/miracle these days. We like to say that we grew up together because we were such incredible BABIES when we got married!

But I degress.  I wanted to show you my new fabrics. I always look ahead at the various lines scheduled for release and have been waiting for this one.  It is the new "Larkspur" line by 3 Sisters for Moda.  I have been searching for a line with the same feeling as the old Moda, "Luna Notte" line. Do you remember it?  It had beautiful soft colors, lovely prints and a bit of a vintage feel, which I totally love.  I've had wonderful success selling thread catchers made from those fabrics.  But alas, there appears to be very little left on the planet probably because I purchased most of it! When I saw the photos for "Larkspur", I knew that it was the perfect line for more thread catchers using my Sew Sassy Thread Catcher pattern like this one.  I will be getting started with my new Larkspur fabrics this afternoon, but I had to lay them out and just gaze lovingly for a moment. Ahhhhhh!, such a feast for the eyes...
