A Whole Stack of Happy :)

Nothing says "happiness" to me quite like a stack of beautiful new fabric....

...the smell, the feel, the possibilities :) I've been searching far and wide for a range of fabric to start a brand new project in....a range with small prints, great colours, and lots of variety. Today, I found just what I was looking for...

...and this is what it's for...
Tracey, Linda and I have decided to take on a big project this year...in addition to our monthly Sweetwater Label Crew project, that is. We are making what we lovingly refer to as "the caravan quilt", more commonly known as A Family Gathering by Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched. We have a plan of attack, we have our fabrics, we have a start date...let the fun begin!
Happiness today also came with spending the day with the lovely Lisa and Janelle, doing what we do best...chatting, laughing, shopping, and continuing our search for Perth's best patisserie :)
Lots of wonderful discoveries made on our journey today.... some gorgeous fabrics, our new favourite shop, scrumptuous lemon meringue pies, and this...
...which had my name written all over it!
Happy happy happy :)
