Ruby (again!)

...I can't seem to get enough Ruby...I know, there are other {beautiful} fabric lines out there...but sometimes a girl just gets stuck on one line for a while, and for me it's been Ruby {maybe it has something to do with having a little girl and using it to make things for her}.  So, this yardage found its way to my fabric shelf...and so has this sewing kit...


I know, I'm a little spoiled.  But my mom made me this darling sewing kit using Amy's tutorial {find it at her blog: here!}.  Isn't it cute?  Of course, I've already filled it with little necessities.


Doesn't it look like it's just itching to be part of an embroidery project?  I have another one of those to show you very soon too...and yes, I used Ruby, but I think you'll love it!

Do you have a fabric line, color combination, or something else that has been dominating all your projects lately?


  1. I know how you feel about the fabric! And I love your sewing kit from your mom!

  2. I made a Swoon quilt out of Hometown by Sweetwater a few months back and am still working my way through the scraps of it, so I've had a lot of Hometown projects! All that's left I cut into 1.5" squares but don't know yet what I'll do with it!

    P.S. Was there ever a winner chosen from the link up on this post??? : http://www.cloverandviolet.com/2011/11/stash-project-sweetness-quilt.html

  3. So cute! At the moment I'm jealously hoarding all my Tula Pink Prince Charming whilst I work out the best pattern to show it all off - the idea I'm trying to work through won't use anywhere near all of it, so I should have loads of wee projects to work through with it afterwards :o)

  4. I'm obsessed with Echo by Lotta Jansdotten and Outfoxed by Lizzy House.
    Both are on my wish list and I hope I'll have some for christmas !

  5. I love Ruby, although I haven't purchased any yet-- and your sewing kit from our Mom is soooo sweet!! Lately, I'm finding that I'm making a lot of things from Aneela Hooey's Sherbet Pip's and Little Apples-- i may be a little behind the times, but at least I can buy it at a reduced price!

  6. Go the ruby! I have so many favourites that it's hard to think of just one, but Tanya Whelan fabric features pretty highly up there for me recently :)

  7. Aliens have been consuming my sewing projects...in the form of UFOs. As I prepare for my Finish A Long and Christmas that is all I can think about.

  8. Adorable sewing kit! I love that fabric, too.

  9. Eeekkkk! Your kit is awesome! Your mom did a really nice job. Ruby is still one of my favorites too! Thanks for the link!!
