While the weather outside is frightful...

Like a million degrees!
Inside is quite delightful.
Cause it's like Christmas in July again, from "Island Batik".
Twice a year they send their ambassadors, boxes of goodies.
July, being a perfect month to get us thinking about those cooler weather projects!
Each time they are bigger and better, and this is no exception.
Aurifil, gave us tote bags and thread, color charts and stickers...
Hobbs bless their hearts, sent us not 1, not 2, but 3 packages of batting!
Then there's the fabric.
Glorious, glorious fabric!
The batik foundation bundle, is from the Basic and Blenders collections
They are available "ALL" the time.
I'm loving the new "Check it out" line.
So many ideas with checks running thru my head.
White, black, gray batik...
Must have's for your stash, especially if you love applique like I do.
The white is my new favorite. 
How many times to we say "@&$*", when we see colors showing thru our white fabrics.
Yards of delightful batik's.
5 yards of a neutral, we always need them.
I use this "almond" all the time.
My heart goes pitty pat!
Then there stacks and strips, so much beauty to the eye.
All of that and my favorite guy!
Oh how I'd love to show you, but as you can see,
it says Surprise and it will have to be!
A little hint, that I can share...
It won't be long before it starts looking like Christmas hare!
OK, I can't really come up with a rhyme for share.

A big thanks to...
You guys are the best!
til next time...
Keep on Stitchin'
