Thimbles and Love.

For the longest time I have been searching for a thimble. Not just any old thimble, but a replacement for my very damaged but much loved plastic thimble that I refuse to part with, and can't seem to stitch without...it's like an old friend :)

Today my search took me here...

...a very dangerous place for fabric lovers in Mosman Park. And while I was supposed to be "just along for the ride" while Evana fed her new addiction, my heart almost stopped when I found the haberdashery section.

It's just like my old thimble...but better! Metal, not plastic! Expensive, but so so necessary when blanket stitching. YIPPPEEEEE!!!
It only got better...

Amy Butler's brand new fabric line...Love. What an appropriate name...it is TO DIE FOR delicious, and I have just the thing that I'm going to make with it :)
The shop was so full of beautiful things, it was very difficult to be restrained...so much funky, modern, bright ,colourful fabric, books galore, and inspiration around every corner...

...oh dear.
My fingers are just itching to start cutting and stitching!

The thimble is great & all, but gimme the fabric!!! I saw this range on all the Houston Quilt Market wrap ups & fell in love with Love. I can't wait to see what you make with it.
