The fun part about being an Island Batik Ambassador is twice a year we get the most fantastic fabrics ever!!

This box is no exception!

Notice the black fabric to the right?  That is rayon, I have an idea of what I am going to make with stay tuned.

Aren't these fabrics just out of this world?  These are the Fall/winter collection of 2017!

If you are wondering where to buy Island Batik closest to you go to their website and up top they have a store locator.


My husband and I have been putting fence up in the pasture....oh my stinking gosh, I have not worked this hard in forever.  I have bruises, cramped hands, and aching bones and in 103 degree weather to boot.  I have to admit, I do love helping him.

Today we were putting post in the ground for more fencing but lucky me we had a son come to help.  My job is tying the fence to the metal post...I can do that!!!  Once I got the hang of it, it went pretty quick.....

Fencing is hard work but once you get the system happening it goes ok and then the fence is is such a rewarding job once finished......

That makes for hot work!! Be careful.

Beautiful fabrics.

Wow, that is a nice stash of batiks.
The rayon is nice for garments. You should make a simple blouse out of it. If there isn't enough for a full blouse, then use it for the front and use black cotton for the back of the blouse.

What wonderful mail! Love those batiks! I don't work with them often, but when I do, I wonder why I don't pull them out more often. I just finished quilting my sea turtles quilt. OMG, it's so cute! Binding today, then pictures. You be careful working out there in that heat, young lady!

Beautiful fabric. I have also been wanting to create something with batik rayon, ideally a summer dress. I look forward to seeing what you create with yours.


PS - My body goes on strike in 100+ temperatures. I'm impressed you built a fence!
