Too much reading and not enough sewing...

This is what arrived for me today from the lovely Corinna at Crazy Quilt Girl Fabric Shop. I searched everywhere for one shop I could buy all 3 different varieties of charm squares that I've been wanting... I found them all in Corinna's shop, and at a fabulous price too I might add!
I can see the quilts pictured in my head that I plan to make with these pretties, lets just hope they turn out that way!
These are: Candy Kisses, Sorbet & Glace...


What a lovely stack of squares these are...


This is my newest bag - all for me - I refuse to part with this one! My last one I grudgingly passed on to my Mum, who is addicted to bags, so I've made myself a new one, and it's quilted at that! I just loved this fabric!


And I even made myself a little mobile phone pouch to match...



Above is my 9 patch quilt top all done. I wanted this one to have the palest pinks, greens and blues. I'm looking forward to getting it finished, but I've been so busy reading that not much sewing has been getting done!
I'm a huge Twilight fan... as alot of you are! I've just finished reading the House Of Night series, and they are just brilliant! I couldn't do anything else at all until I was done. Now I'm just looking forward to the next one... Hunger Games was another on the list that I've read - it was also very good. I feel like all I've done is read for weeks now, when I get in the mood I just can't stop! Sewing will just have to wait for now...
I have a pile of books a mile high to read, plus more in my Amazon Cart to order... I don't think I'll ever be done! But it's what keeps me happy! I pass on all of my (suitable) books to my son Jay to read - he's just as bad as me, lol. My hubby says we've forever got our heads stuck in a book!
Best wishes, and happy reading, sewing or whatever it is that makes you happy!

Hi Jenelle,
You know I will have to have a read of these Twilight books, everyone keeps raving about them & how good they are, so it's no wonder you are hooked.
Love the charm squares, we have a shop near where I work that stocks just about everything made by Moda & Moda Home....& yes it's just as addictive as Twilight!
The quilt top looks really pretty, you have done a great job.

Hi Janelle I'm a Twilight addict too I read the books two times and watched the movie heaps can't wait for New Moon to come out. Love those charm packs I wish you didn't put the link to the shop because now I will have to go and have a look and will probably end up spending money. Like I need more fabric. Take care Carol

I love that bag. It is adorable. My mom is addicted to bags, too.
My daughter loves the Twilight books. I will have to tell her about the House of Night series. I have a stack of books I want to read, too. Can't find time for all of them.

Hi Jenelle,
Ooh, I can't wait to see what comes out of all those pretty fabric squares.

Hm, nice bag, I'd like to be your Mum and pince that one.

Your quilt in the making is very soft and delicate in colours.
Have fun finishing it.
Stay warm,
Hugs,
Anna
