Favourite Things Friday with Shay

Friday is with us again which means I get to tell you about a Favourite and link up with the lovely SHAY at Quilting in my Pyjamas.
My Favourite today would have to be the nice little collection of fabrics I am slowly gathering for some sort of tribute quilt to William Morris. Trouble is I cannot decide what I want to do yet.

I keep pouring over my book of William Morris designs and oh there are so many and so little time.
I have done the "Michelle" fabric thing and flung them around my neck and caressed them and oohed & ahhed over them. What's that you say 'You don't do that when you get new fabrics' Whoops!
I am very happy that after dancing around the fact I wanted do a quilt like this I finally started the fabric building and didn't miss the boat as I usually do when it comes to ranges of fabrics.
So enjoying looking at these lovely fabrics and dreaming and planning is my 'favourite' today.
I thought I would finish today with a little quote from one of my favourite books...."Little Book of Moments of Pleasure" by Paul Wilson.
"Hurt Your Face" go on "LAUGH so hard you hurt your face"
I wish you a wonderful weekend filled with things that make you happy.
Namaste,
Blessings Michelle x

  7. William Morris fabrics are beautiful aren't they! I think you should keep on admiring them until you really know what you want to do with them.

  8. Beautiful favorites. Sometimes I have to wait a bit before the fabric tells me what it wants to be when it grows up. Hope it shares it's secrets soon.

  9. I buy fabric all the time and then wait for it to speak to me. The right pattern will pop into your head but in the meantime - keep collecting!
