Aren't these fabulous? Any fabrics I buy must be washed before they go into my stash. Normally I don't enjoy laundry chores - unless they involve new fabrics. I find it very satisfying as I take fabrics out of the dryer and fold them. It's an extra excuse to touch and study and plan what I want to do with these. Can you tell I've just returned from Africa? All of these read "ethnic" to me. I'm not a "bricks and mortar" shopper - I do best when I'm e-shopping. eQuilter.com and Hancock's of Paducah are two of my favorite sources for fabrics. Decent sale prices and quality!

And as so often happens, once I start to use a fabric, I really develop a love for it. There is less than a quarter yard of this. And it definitely fits into buddy Cecilia's house. Her birthday is this Saturday. So here is a set of Mug Rugs (thank you, Rachel, for that idea) that I think she'll use. The batting is actually a thermal batting designed for hot stuff. Good thing she isn't a blog reader, eh?
