Eye Candy ~ The Fabric Kind

Today I have a little bit of eye candy for you! Isn't this gorgeous?! I got this incredibly beautiful bundle of Atsuko Matsuyama fabric from Shay's shop Simply Sweet Fabric. Have you visited her shop yet? It's AWESOME!!! She has a great selection of Japanese fabric like the above Atsuko prints and Lecien Flower Sugar, umm, yes please!!! 30's reproduction prints, you know how much I love those. She has a really beautiful bundles and yardage of Briar Rose by Heather Ross. She also still has some Pam Kitty Morning! There are patterns and hexie templates too. So, yeah, I'm loving her shop.

Fresh from the package! My Atsuko fat quarters.

I'm squealed when I opened the package. These prints are even better in person. 

 Love, love, love these selvedges. Look at that little strawberry. You can click on the picture to make it bigger I think. Definitely saving these!

Sometimes it's hard to wash a beautiful bundle like this, but I am a pre-washer so it had to be done. They felt really nice after I washed them.

I am going to make some hexies with these pretties and turn them into a pouch. I'll probably use some linen too.

Another shot of this pretty stack, just because! Playing with fabric is almost as good as sewing with it.

One last thing before I go... Thank you all for the sweet Happy Anniversary wishes. My husband brought these Mums home to me. He thought that I would like them because they can be planted and come back every year. Aren't they pretty? I've never seen any like these before.

Hope the rest of your week is great!

Beautiful Mums, so unusual. And as for the eye candy... I always seem to think I don't like pastel colours and then I se bundles like this and I realise I so love pastels. They are gorgeous and will make some beautiful projects.
