Hows that for a snappy title? (Snort!!!)  Okay, remember yesterday's lovely moire? It really is cream and not grey. On my screen is looks grey and nothing I did changed it. Hey! You over there in the corner...I heard that and I will take some photography classes someday...I promise!

Ok, ready for today's addition?  How do you feel about tone on tone? How do you feel about paisley?  Do you like silk? How does red....bright shiny red strike you? How about tone on tone bright shiny red paisley silk?  And maybe a splash of green sheer tone one tone paisley with a loop or four attached just for interest?  A swath of lavendar-on-not-quite-royal-purple almost corduroy paisley do anything for you? And then how about lame lamay gold on black slinky shimmery paisley? Can you embellesh anything with these?

And just because it's Sunday....a couple of cute little kitty cut outs for appliqueing.

And never any charge for the bird nest filler.  I see the black cat has been in it.

Okay for a chance to win this Build A Box of fancy fabrics and embellishments and anything else I might take a notion (pun intended) to throw in there....follow my blog and leave a comment.  You don't have to tell me what you might do with today's goodies but that might add to the fun. Oh, yeah if you are a no-reply blogger and are returning today, did you get my reply from yesterday's comment or not? Cause I replied to everyone!  I'll need your email at some point.  Check back often...can't promise something every day but I'm gonna do my best!

Wow! Those are some very nice fabrics. A couple of years ago I bought a needle punch attachment for my sewing machine. I plan to do some very funky pillows using all types of fancy fabrics and needle punching. I was it on the web once.
Those fabrics would be perfect.

Hi Cheri, it's Kathleen in CT from Lib-Quilters. At first I wondered what I could do with your fabrics, and I wouldn't want to take a chance away from someone else would could use these. Bu now count me in! My daughter has been making necklaces with beads and fabrics like these (and also 'slinky' scarves), following tutorials she has found online. Then I thought about using some of your fabrics to embellish a wall quilt.
And your cat silhouettes drew me right in! Now I want to make a freestyle quilt of cats using your silhouette shape. More ideas!
Thanks very much for sharing your fabrics. I enjoyed your blog post today, describing your fabrics.
Good day to you,
Kathleen in CT
