Lavender Bliss

Went a did a little bit of stashing. I stopped by a local fabric shop called Quilting Post. I swear, I could buy a piece of every fabric I saw! I picked out a few I liked and settled for those. Too bad I don't have room for one each. As I was checking out I happened to look down and see this:


Ooo, Lavender, my favorite scent! Lavishea? I picked up the little sample tin and opened it. Holy crows, real Lavender bliss wafted out. I tipped the cake out into my hand and rubbed it a little. Smooth and buttery. "This is lotion?" I asked the lady ringing me up. It really, really was. I snatched up a tin and handed it over, only later thinking to ask how much it cost ~ not very much ~ as it turned out. Well, I did say if there was a Lavender lotion I'd buy it by the gallon tub, remember? 

This lotion is amazing! It isn't greasy at all, just the perfect stuff for stitching. It smells incredible and I mean like "you-wouldn't-believe-how-yummy" incredible! It does come in other scents and unscented as well. There is even a manly-flavored one. My hands are going to be so happy this winter! Don't you hate snagging threads on cracked, scaly fingers? Lavishea has a website so you can click here to see if some place near you sells it or you could buy it from there. I am not associated with Lavishea and I wasn't asked to write this post, I am just a happy customer!


Here are the fabrics I bought. Two possibles for the Prairie Schooler ornaments and three fat quarters of the sweetest Halloween prints ever. I simply adore that candy fabric ~ so cute! The red check is nice but I'm still looking for some that is yarn-dyed and not printed, although this is a good, high-quality print. I am hoping to go to the city to Jo-ann's Fabrics this weekend. Do you think I could convince Dash to buy a bigger house so I could have more room to craft and stash?

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

I just bought some of that Lavishea this week too. I got Yarn Bar...it's a spicy sort of fragrance.

Hope it keeps my fingers snag free this winter.

Happy New Year to you. Have fun at the Joanns.

Jan said...

I love the fabric, especially the Halloween ones.
Now I have to go google lavishea!

Have a happy and safe new year!

Michelle said...

Lovely fabrics - lovely choice. Mmmm I can smell your scented bar from here. There is a shop in the UK called Lush and they sell hand-bars similar to what you have that you rub onto your hand. When I next visit I'll see if they do a lavender one and if they do I will get it for you to compare. Here's to a happy 2012 for you filled with many blessings xx

I may just have to find me some Lavishea for myself, mother and my girlfriend. Thanks for sharing. Super cute fabrics. I like the red check, myself.

The fabrics are really cute. And lavender is wonderful, this lotion sounds heavenly.

MartyG said...

I definitely think Dash should build a bigger house so you can have more stash. My BFF brought me Lavishea unscented back from Alaska. I haven't opened it yet but I am going to run upstairs and get it right now.

Its always so nice to find our favorites of something!!! Glad you found one of yours!!!

Pretty fabrics ... I love fabrics!! I could buy them all .. and never end up using half of them :)

Brunn said...

That candy fabric is adorable!

moreofhim said...

That lotion sounds amazing and, yes, I'm tired of snagging my fabric and threads on my poor, dry hands. I will definitely be checking out that website! Love your fabrics, too!

I finally wrote a post about the cross stitch pattern of the red bird that you so generously gave me! It turned out gorgeous and thank you so much for sharing it with me! Stop by and take a look. :)

Blessings - Julie

Shirlee said...

Myra said...

Oh that lotion looks interesting - I will have to check it out. Love your new fabrics, the candy is my favorite too. :o) If you have a Hobby Lobby nearby they have some nice yarn dyed checks.

Tracey said...

Oooooo I love lavender too! I'm going to see where I can get that! Love your fabric choices!

pandy said...

Unfortunately I'm allergic to lavender :( I like the scent but it gives me the sneezes! I want to try their unscented one for sure! Thanks for posting about it. :) That candy fabric is really cute. Take care and Happy New Year!

Measi said...

Gorgeous fabrics! I have a candy corn patterned fabric that I bought last year that looks quite similar.

Thanks for joining the WIPocalypse for next year! I've added you to the participant list. Between it and the Crazy January challenge, my TUSAL jar is going to be working overtime!

Happy New Year!

TxEm said...

I am COMPLETELY convinced I need one of those lotion bars. Finding a lotion that won't stain stitching that takes me seven years to complete has eluded me. It cracks me up that the man-scent is called man-bar.

Kate said...

Lovely bunch of fabrics and lavender lotion too - yummy.
Happy New Year!

Johanna Zweden said...

Alvast een heel goed uiteinden en een heel goed begin voor 2012, met veel liefde geluk en gezondheid en creativiteit

Never heard of the stuff before but will keep my eyes open now ;o)

Uuuuuuu...that's some nice fabric!

Ziggyeor said...

Nice fabrics! I need to look at fabrics and quilt patterns. I'm thinking of a wall hanging when I get all of these Dolly Mama's stitched for Christmas :)

Oh, great new fabrics. I think the two below will be perfect for your Prairie Schoolers.

I wish I was in america to get Lavishea ... unfortunately if I want it shipped to England ... it would probably cost lots for postage and the the tax for imported goods on top of that. Fabrics look exciting ... just about to go to the shop myself ... staying at mums is so handy ... one bus instead of two, and more time for shopping.

Sarah said...

The lotion bar sounds wonderful I will have to see if I can get it here. Looooooooove your fabrics. Happy New Year Daffy xxxx

Doris said...

Happy New Year to you and your family!!!

Lei said...

Thanks for sharing about the lotion. That is something I definitely need. Love your fabrics. Can't wait to see what you do with them. Happy New Year!

Suzanne said...

I love lavender too, it's so relaxing. Great fabrics you picked up.
