Who needs a nap?

Distracting me from my distractions are a whole lot of cozy, beautiful things coming soon.....Gathering Flowers Quilt pattern, Flower Patch Pillows pattern, a reprinting of some favorite fabrics (on smooth voile!), the Proper Attire Skirt pattern (wait till you see- and from size xs- 3xl!!) and of course all those other new fabrics and 3 new free patterns too. By my calculations I should be able to take a shower in about 18 days.

All I can think about is soup and a nap (where I will dream about sewing).

So there's a little inspiration ~ have a gorgeous weekend~ it's cooler here today...there?
xo, Anna
