Well I pretty much fell in love with its clean lines and easy to navigate pages and the retro feel that the store has. I like the way the store is laid out and I love how it links to the blog too. It was this link that led me to this post about a gorgeous table runner!
Well I knew there and then I needed that table runner in my life - its colours are perfect for my newly decorated kitchen, so I bought it and here it is!
Now clearly its on the window in my sewing room in these pictures as my dining rom table is full of shizzle I couldn't be assed moving!! Naughty aren't I? Anyhow the table runner was so easy to make up I did it in an evening!
When I ordered the goodies to make up the table runner I also ordered some of the very sought after Ed Emberley 'Happy Drawings' fabric for Cloud 9, to make Hunter some more baby trousers. These fabrics are organic and just so darn cute!
More recently I've ordered some Anna Maria Horner Velveteens to add to my stash. I'm hopefully going to make a giant star quilt using this pattern from Jeni and inspired by this quilt from Katy.
As I ordered the velveteens I noticed Annie had a pre-cut bunting kit from Laurie Wisbrun's Modern Whimsy. I adore this line and figured this purchase would kill two birds with one stone - my need for bunting in the sewing room and my need to own some of this cute fabric!! Agreed?!

I can tell you there are some beauties on there just now that Annie ordered on her recent trip to Quilt Market in Kansas City. I clearly will be requiring these beauties in my life.
As well as great fabric Annie sells everything from Aurifil to embroidery threads, Yarn to knitting needles and Trims to dressmaking patterns! In fact the current offer is 15% off Figgy's dressmaking patterns valid til June 26th.
So I think what I'm trying to say is if you haven't visited this great store, you really should!!
