WIP Wednesday

Wednesdays sure roll around quickly don't they . I have shared some of the things I have been doing like the beach tote but behind the scenes I have been doing some Christmas sewing but can only give you a sneak peak for now but be sure to come back for the Think Christmas blog hop coming soon to many places that you love thanks to Madamme Samm and the Cuddle Quilter Lesley our friendly hostess for this event.Here is a sneak peak , don't look too close now ;-)
 This little project is complete but again I can't show you just yet just tickling your imagination .
 I received an email telling me there is  a sale at Lucy's, a fabric shop in town and what is a girl to do but go check it out . Since I am taking part in a class in the fall and was looking for fabrics for the jacket I plan on making I figured it was a perfect time to check and see what she had on hand . It was not easy to choose as there are so many gorgeous fabrics on sale ,I might even have to go back but for now this is what I picked up , the photo is really not the best as the fabrics are a much sharper color than showing here . Thanks Sherry for your help in choosing fabrics :-)
The fabrics on the bottom I bought simply because I like them and will not be used in the jacket . 
I am linking up today to the Needle and Threadnetwork be sure to stop by and see what everyone is up to .
 Before I go I wanted to tell you that I made a decision on my RWB blocks from the blog hop , 
I read on Lesleys blog about the need for quilts and quilt blocks by the Phoenix Quilts , to read the history behind this cause be sure to check out this blog and do what you can to help , I have mailed off these six blocks , not a huge contribution but I hope they can be of some use .Thanks to Julie for taking on this monumental task with the help of many more volunteers . Several hundred people lost their homes and Julie has organized the gathering and making of quilts to comfort these people who lost their homes due to fires , so sad . 

 Thanks for the visit.
hugs Sheila
