I received a concerned email asking me why I was quitting and closing down Cluck Cluck Sew….which means I should probably start posting regularly again! Also NO…I’m not leaving or quitting or closing down, it’s just been on the backburner and it’s hard to jump back into it regularly. You can’t get rid of me that easily!
I have been sewing and I have the (super cute) scraps to prove it!
I’ve been buying some spring-ish florals and cute prints that catch my eye. Those strawberries are by Riley Blake, the collection is New Dawn (that whole line is so cute). The florals are also Riley Blake, big florals are from Flower Market, and the little floral with carrots are from the line Easter Egg Hunt.
I’m finally updating my Sugar Dish pattern after saying I was “working on it” for the last… oh I don’t know…7 years. I wrote this pattern in 2010, I cringe when I look at it in black and white on copy paper. Bless you if you bought this pattern back then!
This month all of my kids will be in school for the first time in a year! Hallelujah. It’s still only part time, but it’s a perfect transition back into the classroom. I’ve loved having them home so much this past year, but they reaaaaally missed school and it was starting to take a toll on their mental health.
Six weeks ago my kids let our male rabbit out in the yard at the same time as our female rabbit…and now we have a litter of 8 fuzzy bunnies! Man they are fun….and maybe the most held/loved/played with bunnies ever.
My latest fabric crush is these Bee Basics by Lori Holt for Riley Blake. I bought 1/2 yards of my favorites to try them out and mix them in with my stash.
Honestly they feel rougher in person than the Blossom Basics by Riley Blake that I use in everything, and the Blossom Basics are even cheaper in price. The print of these is perfect and I love the range of colors available though. I’ll give them a whirl and see how they compare.
So there’s the most random Thursday blog post ever…all to let you know that I’m over here snuggling bunnies and buying lots of new fabric I probably don’t need! ;)
