fabric + cake = bliss!

soo it's been a wee bit quiet here! i have lots to share with you, a finished quilt, a quilt top, a tablerunner and something a bit geeky! but first some fabric eye candy. 


i love this fabric collection (wildwood by elizabeth olwen) the colours are totally *me* at the moment, i did buy this fabric with a plan, i'm going to make the night sky quilt by thimbleblossoms i just need to add 16 more fat quarters and then it's cutting time!


jodi from pleasant home was having a sale in her etsy shop and as soon as i saw the orange and navy bundle i just had to have it! it's a mixture of denyse schmidt and juliana horner which you could only get in joann stores in the U.S. jodi doesn't normally ship to UK but very kindly made an exception for me!


i added the navy and orange bundle (above) to a few fabrics! i think there is nothing better than a big ol' pile of fabric all messy! ok i love neat, organised pictures of fabric, but messy always wins! this is my initial pull for my big autumn-y quilt (which i am super excited about) i may add and take away a few prints but i really like the mix i have here


and finally cake, not just any cake cinnamon roll cake *yum* after seeing lots of scrummy pictures over on IG i just had to make it! and the culprit that started all the cake baking susan over at canadian abroad  really after reading her post you'll be reaching for the flour and cinnamon!

  4. I love that color combo--I actually just bought a few yards of Elizabeth Olwen and Denyse Schmidt from the same lines last week, I love the blue and coral together. Also, that cake looks delicious.
