Sunday Stash #23

It's been a productive weak for research but not for sewing. I am helping the school librarian put together a brochure of  recommended books from the 'NSW Premier's Reading Challenge'  and 'Children's Book Council Australia'.  
It probably took me about 6 hours and that was just trying to research the age appropriateness of each title. I managed to slip a few good classic titles into each level as well as one indigenous title as well - The Hobbit, The Silver Sword, Playing Beattie Bow,  The Fat and Juicy Place. It should be a good selection of books.

Anyway onto fabric...

I was thinking of joining the 'Texting Whilst Sewing' group on Flickr and so I indulged in some text prints from Ayumi's Etsy store. I just purchased one of her fabric grab bags for variety.

I am not sure if I will get time to enter now that the 'Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop' and 'Practically Paper Piecing Blog Hop' are immanent. But they are lovely to fawn over all the same.

Of course she always slips in a couple of sweet extra scraps and a lovely note!

And speaking of text prints...have you check out the stunning quilt that Rita from Red Pepper Quilts has been piecing together this week? I can't wait to see how she will quilt this one.
