Catherine Whall Smith . . . was successful in finding more “Bird Seed” fabric!

As mentioned in my last post, I save the selvage edge of my fabrics to be able to purchase more fabric at a later date.   I didn’t know at the time I started the “Hay . . . Keep Your Distance” pieces that they would turn into a series. My plan is to do at least 12.  The beautiful “Bird Seed” fabric is key – so I started searching the internet for more.  In my search I came across this color wave of the design.

Love the colors – so after awhile I did put in a bid, it was countered, I accepted.  Here it is;

There was always a nice note in the package. Will put that vendor on the “BUY FROM HERE, AGAIN” list!


STUDIO UP-DATEThe weight of each “Barriers” panel is getting heavy – so the edge of the green shutter has to support that weight.  My thought was to resolve the issue with an iron-on stabilizer fabric. One of my “go to” fabric stores is in Vernon, CT, so I headed over there on Thursday and found out that on Monday it had started a “Going Out of Business” sale.




Battings, etc. were all gone early in the week – still lots of beautiful fabric. So head over before the end of the month.
