FMF surprise...

My FMF obsession is gathering pace and I have had a lovely, lovely surprise through the post all the way from Australia.

I am now the proud owner of this:

I'm not sure if I will ever be able to use it, which seems a waste really, but at the moment I am just enjoying seeing it neatly folded! It was wrapped up in purple tissue with a little thank you card enclosed which read:

Well, I just ripped that paper apart! And look what was inside!

An extra piece of fabric from the collection! Thank you so much Kelly! I absolutely love the grey colourways because I am building a quilt for my loft bedroom in greys and greens and so these are fabrics that I will definitely cut in to!

My collection is steadily growing and these also arrived from here.

I am a happy bunny today!

A quick update on my neck for you: I went to see my surgeon yesterday and as it was still quite swollen, he aspirated it for me - yep, needle in the neck again! Thank goodness it's still numb! Anyway, I have managed to massage all of the glue off now and can concentrate on making the scarring fade. It looks much better now, not gory at all, but I suspect I may need it aspirating again... We'll see...


  1. I'm glad the fabric arrived safely, and quickly! I thought the vines went well with the grey, so I'm glad you like them.
    I only discovered FMF quite recently, and am well and truly obsessed!!! LOL
    I like the look of your stash. I don't have all the fabric you have yet, but I'm working on it!
    Kelly :-)

  2. Oooh, fabricy goodies always help take my mind off horrid stuff - but I have to say the mental image of necks, needles and glue is quite striking!

  3. What beautiful fabric. I may start obsessing about FMF soon!

    And I too love looking at fabrics neatly stacked and folded. Currently admiring my latest QuiltHome acquisitions while G's at work!

    Needle + neck=eeek! But so glad it's all healing up.

  4. Lovely fabrics. I have the same passion but for paper! I am glad that your neck wound is healing up. x

  5. Goodness me! Given the choice I'd take the fabric over the needle. I hope there are no more medical procedures in your immediate future.


Hi! Thanks for leaving me a comment, I really enjoy reading them and I will try to reply if I can find an email address for you...
