Remember That Fabric I Won?

If you recall, a couple of weeks ago I won a $50 gift certificate at an online fabric store, Fashionable Fabrics. I spent that $50 (and then some) and here's what I got. It arrived today! VERY exciting!

There's a little of this and a little of that, including some sale fabrics and remnants.

This stack is from the "Fandango" line by Kate Spain, except for the brown with white dots, which is "Mingle Cocoa" by Robert Kaufman. I see that I missed one of the Fandango prints and put it with a different group below.

In the above group, the two pieces on the left are "Farmdale" by Alexander Henry. I like the chickens. I have plans for those chickens. I should have folded the chicken fabric to better show the big yellow roosters that are sprinkled among all the little chickens. They greys on the right are "Lil' Plain Jane" by Michael Miller.

These are just a mix of a bunch of things that caught my eye for one reason or another. The blue "Sparrow" fabric on the right by Alexander Henry reminds me of my Dad so I had to have it. It reminds me of the swallows that Dad carved and painted and it's blue. Mom always said that Dad looked best in blue ... dabba dee dabba di. The woodland critters in the trees is "Tree Huggers" by Studio E Fabrics. Owls seem to be everywhere on fabric these days and I'm a little caught up in the owl craze it seems. The stuff that looks like olive leaf is from the "Nicey Jane" line by Heather Bailey . Between it and the pink is some more "Fandango" by Kate Spain. The pink spyrograph wheels are "California Dreamin" by Jenean Morrison. The lighter pink print to the left of that one is from the "Lizzie" collection by Anna Griffin. The stripe at the far left is "Welcome Road" by Heather Bailey.
These three are a few remnants that I thought might be good for some small projects that interest me. The fruits are "Willow Orchard" by Alexander Henry. The golden print in the middle is "Farmer's Market" by Sandi Hendersons. The owls (can't resist owls, as you know) is "Urban Zoologie Owls" by Ann Kelle.
