My new boyfriend

Lately, I've been getting a little tingle when an email from my new boyfriend drops into my email box.  My heart beats a little faster causing my pulse to flutter, my throat gets a little parched from the desire, and my credit card starts to itch...knowing it's going to be used soon. 

My new boyfriend is Sawyer Brook Fabrics.  Lately, I've been stalking him/them like nobody's business.  I've recently made a few small purchases and they have added such an awesome wonderfulness to my fabric collection & future garments that I'm putting my old boyfriend on hiatus.  Yes, I'm fickle like that! 

The last two pieces purchased have already been prewashed and are sitting with the other fabrics from the collection waiting for August to roll around so that they can become garments in my August 6Pac.  And yes, I've planned my sewing out that far ahead...well actually September too but we just won't discuss that part of my obsession right now...mmmkay! *LOL*

So why am I being unfaithful to my long time love (shush I can't say his name - he might overhear and be jealous and we just can't have that!)?  Well because he's good for my basic needs and every once in awhile when I need something a little different.  But SB *sigh*, well SB is providing some much needed spice...something a little distinctive...a little unusual...and sometimes a girl just needs something that deviates from the norm...y'know what I mean?

The transitional fabrics that Sawyer Brook is offering now just fits the bill for my present needs.  I know, I know transitional as in summer to fall 'cause who's thinking about fall when the weather here today is 101 degrees farenheit and with the heat index bringing it up to 115 degrees...but fall is coming!  And I already know what the last of my summer sewing is going to be, so my thoughts are turning to transitional sewing...and this is where my new boyfriend is more than satisfying my needs!

This is what I ordered today...and I have plans for each piece! 


Rustica - a cotton/lycra blend


Backwoods - a jersey knit print


Provence (rust) - a jersey knit


Provence (plum) - a jersey knit
I just couldn't leave the twin behind!

There are no stragglers in this bunch because these all coordinate with pieces already in the collection...isn't that fantastic!?  See how my new boyfriend has already eased into my life, working with the existing collection?!  Isn't that so very thoughtful of him!

It is with much anticipation, that I await this box of new goodies!  Cause I need something to take the edge off of this stiffling heatwave!

...as always, more later!

  14. Caroline,

    So sorry, to report to you, SB has been MY boyfriend for over 25 years. Yes, I have been a cheater, but SB is my real love and I always go back to him. We have had an incrediable relationship. We have produced some lovely offspring also. Linings, and buttons; oh the buttons!

    Since we are sewing sisters, and famlies share, I am very happy to share my beloved Sawyer Brooks with you. :)

  15. Oh Carolyn...I have to agree with Valerie. SB and I have being having an affair on the sly for years now. My husband knows when he sees those brown paper packages arrive that I've been unfaithful! Gotta lov'em!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well, why not? You are your own woman, self empowered, responsible for your own... Anyway, I have been ordering from other sites lately as our "husband" has not had too much to excite lately.

    I'm gonna mosey on over to SB because you've posted some nice stuff. ;)

  17. Beautiful pieces... love that rustic apricot.

    ReplyDelete
  18. WHAT? You mean SB's cheating on me? We're only at the necking stage. How could he? LOL

    They have such eye candy on that site, don't they? I MUST limit myself.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Mmmm, loving those knits, can't wait to see what you do with them. I might have to pay you BF a little visit, just a little look-see, you know...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Your boyfriend sure is a keeper. Love that jersey print!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. LOL - there's a new man in town and he's definitely out to win your heart!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Well, at least you are honest and all the boyfriends know where they stand :). Looks like great new fabrics are coming your way, I might have to pay more attention to their emails. Your old boyfriend just sent an email with some 75% off categories, have you been tempted? LOL, enjoy your new fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I LOVE SB! I have never received a disappointing fabric from them, and the swatch cards.... it's a very good day when they come.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I have been doing business with SB since they were on Rt 101 in Amherst, NH, under the original owners and then the next owner. They have a fabulous eye for quality and you won't see yourself coming and going with their fabrics. Cust. Service is excellent. I think you will be very happy in your new relationship.

  26. LOL, I am about to start planning for fall but you've already done it! I'm sure you'll have a nice relationship with your new guy already providing such lovely fabrics.

    ReplyDelete
  27. ooohhh...fabulous! I will have to check SB out!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. They look like perfect fall fabrics. I am amazed you can plan so far ahead, I usually start changing my mind as soon as I take a pattern out of the envelope (which is why things happen so slowly round here!).

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ok so I chatted with your boyfriend this morning he's sending me something by UPS. lol!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Your new boyfriend is two timing me! I have been loving their fabrics as well. In fact, I'm planning on getting the Provence fabrics. The Other Carolyn.

  31. I love SB. I am lucky to live about 40 minutes away from them. I have a friend who works there. She gets paid in fabric. Can you imagine? If I only lived a little closer. What a dream job that would be.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have been visiting their site more frequently myself. I have a piece of fabric in my current summer stash to make into a dress.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hmm while you where out looking for other boyfriends, this was around the time that I met your main squeeze. My card and I visited a lot and still like the goods.
