Purchasing fabric online

My daughter and I didn’t get to the fabric store this weekend, however I have had a chance to check out a few online fabric stores…

Ordering fabric online is a strange concept for myself since I’ve always purchased it from brick and mortar stores but I’m willing try something new. The first blogger that got me interested in possibly purchasing from online fabric stores was Quilts, etc.,  if you haven’t checked out Karen’s site you should. Her site mainly focuses on the numerous gorgeous hand sewn quilts that she creates, her work is inspirational. I’m always impressed with her skills and the gorgeous fabric that is displayed in the quilts she makes.

I think Curls & Q might also purchase some of their fabric online. I love their site, it’s an eclectic blog and has a delightful mix of knitting, sewing and various other crafts..

I must say this above fabric has me tempted… Isn’t it lovely? If I want to make the purchase I’ll have to act on it soon,  since the sale ends tomorrow. Also if I do make the purchase it’ll mark the first time I’ve ordered fabric online.

I love brocade silk and I think this would work up nicely in a package I’m sending to someone. I enjoy sending packages to people and do it often throughout the year. It doesn’t have to be much, but its my way of letting them know I’m thinking about them. This past year, I’ve added two blog pals to that list (Q and Nicky ) and I’m really looking forward to sending them something. To be perfectly honest, I’ve been working on their packages for a while and just when I think I’m finished I decided to add something else. I really need to stop that you know. ;) I’ve given myself a few more weeks after that the boxes are being shipped.

I’m really looking forward to getting my embroidery sewing machine tomorrow, it’s a shame that I won’t have too much time to play with it, since I have a board meeting tomorrow evening. But you know I’ll be squeezing a few moments of playtime. How could I possibly resist? ;)

    That is so beautiful! The dragon and the phoenix – would be ideal for a couple’s wedding outfits, suitable for both the groom and the bride. Too bad I would not be needing that! LOL!!!
