Happy Saturday!  The weather is beautiful here today - after a few days with well-needed non-stop rain.  The temperatures are down and everything looks fresh and clean!

Yesterday evening, I finished up my last Crowjacker.  Check out this spooky & very, very scary collection:
 I stitched these figures because I thought that the Crowjackers were just about adorable, so I was a bit surprised to find that the Moonriders are my favorites now.  Hopefully, I'll get around to finishing them up this weekend!

I also started on my second Fremme bird picture.  This one looks a bit more stitch-intense than the first one, so it will be interesting to see how long this one will take to finish up...

Before I jump on to breakfast, I wanted to show you this super-sweet fabric collection by Heather Ross for Kokka Fabrics - this is my latest fabric obsession.  This is the third collection in the "Far Far Away" series.  I love the themes, the colors, the artistry - everything!  Kokka Fabric is a Japanese company and is the same design house that also prints up the Echino brand (another of my obsessions).  Anyway, being a Japanese collection made with fabrics that are a mix between cotton and linen, the prices are a tad high... one can always dream, right?  Anyway, this is Far Far Away III:
My favorites - Snow White in  light blue and green - the birch trees are wonderful!
Playing With Horses in brown - cow-girls playing with horses; who'd thought about using that for a fabric design?

And here is the pretty Far Far Away II collection, with Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, and Owl & The Pussycat:
 Some examples of finished goodies - some sweet bags from Blue Nickel Studios:
A gorgeous quilt, Sand Castle, from Chasing Cottons (pattern available for Ay $ 10):

Finally, here are some snippets from the first collection.  Unicorns, The Princess on the Pea, snail repeats and frog-princes....  Love the colors!

A lot of the fabrics from the earlier collections are still available at Etsy - quite a few of them at outrageous prices, but still...  ;-)

Talk with you in a bit and Happy Stitching!
