This has been a fantastic week for new supplies coming in!

First up, I received a package from Connecting Threads. I only needed two of these fabrics - the Faux Linen in anthracite and the Mirage Wine, but I just couldn't resist the others for only $2.96/yd!! The four fabrics are called Penny Candy in colours turquoise, candy pink and persimmon. I don't know where these brights will end up, but I'm happy to have them on the shelf!

Connecting Threads fabric - great colour!

The second package I received was from Superior Threads. I bought two cones of the King Tut last summer, and really liked the quality and low-lint, so when I needed some yellows for an upcoming quilt, I checked out their stock.

I picked up 3 spools of #984 Pyramids, why not buy the cone? Well, I'm going to be running several machines simultaneously, so it'll be easier to have spools. The colour range from yellow to gold is subtle, and I think will really blend with the suede-look fabric that needs the top-stitching.

The cone is #906 Autumn Days. The colour ranges from yellow to orange to red to green. I'm not sure that it will work as well as I hoped - the green is darker than I wanted, but I haven't tested it on the fabric yet so fingers crossed it'll be perfect!

Superior Threads King Tut 100% cotton - what great colours!

And finally, I received a shopping bag from a friend this week. Yay!!

Just look at these jewel tones! I have no ideas yet how to best use them...there may be enough for a twin quilt here if I choose the right size of blocks. Thank you Ashley! Also in the bag were a few pillowcases and covers, mostly of poly cottons, and I'm going to use them for some bags.

Taffeta fabric in jewel tones. So luxurious!

I hope you had a chance to add to your fabric collections too!
