No stitching.........

I didn't get to do any stitching so I'll show you some of the new Hoffman batiks that I purchased from Batiks Plus, the internet store with 40" yards.  Only one store near me (20 miles) carries the Hoffman batiks and they were already out of a lot of them.  I really like some of these new colors.  If you click on the photo and enlarge it you will be able to read the style number and color.  If you sign up for their newsletter you will get a gift and also emails with specials now and then.

I spent 3 hours yesterday trimming bushes and cutting down goldenrod and aster plants and volunteer raspberry plants that migrate from my neighbors' yard.  Also I picked up all of the branches that fell with our bad wind storm a couple weeks ago.  There won't be a brush pick up until April so I had to stack it in the back garden for the winter.  It will give the birds a place to perch while they watch the squirrels eating their food, LOL!

Hi Wanda, I love those batiks - I want to run and get a few pieces but I'm trying to curb my "appetite" awhile longer. Every October I go on a fabric shopping trip to Lancaster, PA with Faithful Circle and Milltown Quilters - it's always a fabrilicious trip.

I've missed reading about your critters, I hope they didn't get blown around too much by the wind storm.

great looking fabrics, I visited the link you gave, I had not looked at that one before.
The birds will love the branches to sit on and take shelter from storms.

The batiks are wonderful! I sounds like you got a lot of yard work done. I may have to take a half day vacation so I can get mind done. By the time I get to the house after work it is almost 5 so it doesn't leave much time before it is dark - I hate this time change!

Those are gorgeous!!! The ones labelled shrimp and wisteria are particularly stunning. What a treat it must have been when those arrived in the mail. :-)

Lovely colors in your batiks. Can't wait to see what you do with them.

You and your beautiful batiks. I might have 5 or 6 batiks in my whole sewing room, I love what you do with them!

As always you select the best of the best fabrics. They are a designers dream.

You will be so glad your yard work it done when the temps drop and it feels like winter.

Your stack of brush may invite critters in for a winter home.
