summer house.

11 June 2011

summer house.

i have over 7 yards of yummy fabric calling my name.

along with a mountain of laundry, my disgusting bathroom, my kiddos baseball games,
my neglected flower beds, overdue deadlines, my overflowing email, pattern writing,
the post office, a handful of grey hairs & mr griffith himself.

where's mary poppins when you need her?!?!
:D

fabric = summer house by lily ashbury for moda <--a must have in my opinion :)

Jealous! It's lovely...one of my favorite new lines in a while!

my happy bluebird said...

Supercalafragalistic... I am having the opposite problem -- If you find Ms. Poppins, please send her over here so I can get some sewing done! By the way, how did you get your hands on that fabric already? I thought it wasn't due out until July?

Kristine said...

Wow - gorgeous fabric! Hope you get to play with it soon!

Barbara McD said...

I don't normally like the more "modern" fabrics - but these are the bees knees! WOW - how gorgeous!!!

The Army of Four said...

That slacker! She's never around when you need her!

Those colors look so cool and inviting while it's roasting outside here! Enjoy!

Pat said...

I love the fabrics that you have waiting. There is a voice that is calling me into my sewing room. I think the voice will win out and the vacuum cleaner will have to wait.

Annette said...

Oh my. I often feel the same way. Life itself can be crazy busy with its demands. I very often wish for 48 hour days instead of 24. Lovely fabric. Looks like good fun.

Char said...

I hear ya! I have all of that and more, but that fabric is gorgeous.

Dirt Road Quilter said...

I'll bet she ran away with Mr. French from Family Affair (gosh, that was even before MY time!) because the demand for them was overwhelming. That Summer House fabric is calling my name!

prairiewhisper said...

That is a beautiful collection of fabric. I can't wait to see what you make.

angelina_lover said...

She was at my house until she saw all the yumminess at your house :-( She's on her way lol

Annik Miller said...

Those are gorgeous. Why haven't I seen these before. Can't wait to see what you make :)

Heather said...

Summer House is my new all time favorite! I can't wait to get my hands on this fabric!! I am so jealous that you have it before everyone else!!

Stephanie said...

Awwwww! I am in love with this fabric line. I have a bunch of it on order from Moda and can not wait to get it in!

Magoo said...

Michele said...

I was wondering the same thing!

vs said...

I would be happy if only for 24 hours everyone forgot how to say the word MOM! Love the fabrics.

Ann Marie said...

i am not normally into the more modern fabrics, but i actually like these, what is the fabric line?

CJ said...

I wasn't on the LOVE TRAIN when I first viewed this line on Moda's site but it has been growing on me with the little peeks I've been getting here and there. Okay, today it is full blown LOVE! I can't wait to see what you are going to make with it!

Mary Grace McNamara said...

Delicious! Whatever you make with that lovely pile of fabric will be just wonderful!

Siobhan said...

Beautiful fabric. Great colours :)

Sandra said...

Here I am, Ms. Poppins at your service, what do you need?
(I'm a British nanny and have been called Mary Poppins many times!)
I can come and re-locate your fabric stash for you (I can hide it all in my oversized bag); that will free you up to do all those other things...please hurry and do the bathroom first, in case I have to use it!!

Susan said...

When you manage to get through your mountain of housework and other related things (I feel your pain)I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with these lovely colours.

Susan

Angie said...

Ohhh so pretty!

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Love Summer House!

afwifemomcrafter said...

That is some seriously pretty fabric!! The only thing on your list that would worry about are the relationships. The rest will wait. :-)

Bree said...

Your list is exactly like mine, except for the kiddo baseball game... mine's too young and uncoordinated for that. But omg, I found grey hairs the other day, too!
And yet, I'm hiding with my own yummy fabric stacks, lol!

Quilting Mom said...

Sometimes...life is just a proverbial treadmill, and the off button to rest is no where in sight...Grey hair is kind of cool and nothing to hide..(just something you earned..lol)The fabric is gorgeous!! Will have to get some...

amylouwho said...

i hear ya sister. Busy busy busy. Not enough time for the creative stuff. Actually, not enough time for sleep!

Amy said...

Oh, LOVE those fabrics! Get busy! ;-)

WoolenSails said...

I love that fabric, especially the bottom green with the blue flower, that really is gorgeous.

Thimbleanna said...

Hey Woman -- if you find Ms. Poppins, could you please send her over here? It would be a quick hop !

bethanndodd said...

ditto (except for the mr. griffith part...my guy is mr. dodd). good luck getting to all of those things calling your name...espeially that fabric! smiles~beth

lesleyworth said...

That fabric is uber-yummy! Ignore the rest (give the Mr a few mins) and answer that fabric call! Lol! If only I could take my own advice!

MimiQuilts said...

Love the fabric...I just ordered a layer cake of it for your quilt along! And my to do lists as long as yours today...hoping to squeeze in a little sewing though!

Evelene S said...

Oh I can't wait to see what magic you make with those gorgeous fabrics in such gorgeous colors.

Nancy said...

I agree. Just ordered a little charm pack for myself. Have to start small.

sally said...

I'm envious, the colors are beautiful.

Karen said...

I think you are right...I need it too!

Sues said...

Hey Rachel - cant believe it but this is the same fabric as i have in my Layer Cake that is ready and waiting for your Symchronized swuares quilt along. Havent been able to get my Aussie hands on any yardage though so as soon as its on the market look out!!

Sarah said...

I think Mary Poppins is playin in your fabric stash! I know that is where I would go! LOL Love the Summer house fabrics!

If Toys Could Talk said...

Dorothy said...

It's all your fault! I just ordered these fabrics in a jelly roll and layer cake! I couldn't stand it anymore...I tried to resist and I made it a whole day! I'm thinking a dresden plate quilt will look cute. Can't wait to see what you do with it. Smiles!

Heather F. said...

Oh the grey hairs!! They are hitting me hard right now. I always knew I'd go grey young (thanks Dad) but it's sure a bitter pill. I might just embrace it. My husband can indulge his X-Men Storm fantasy then.

Chris said...

Such pretty fabric - unfortunately, I'm on a self-imposed moratorium on buying new fabric - my goal is to make 2 scrap quilts using only supplies I have on hand, then I can buys something new! All the best - Chris

Sandy said...

Lots of things to do when you are a young mom....it amazes me all that you do get accomplished!! Hope you get to play with that yumminess soon!

Quilting Yai Yai said...

Those are yum, yum, YUMMY fabrics. Lucky lady!

twin fibers said...

oh, how I wish I had Mary Poppins at my house, too! ;)

momto2wasd said...

Summer House is one of my favorite new lines!! There's not much hoopla about it, but I think it's fantastic!!

Dorothy said...

What project have you used your Summer House fabric on? After I saw this post back in June, I had to hunt it down and buy some. I have finally decided to make your postage stamp quilt with some of it. I thought it was only right. lol.
