Even though I haven't been doing much crafting, I have managed to do a little shopping! A couple of weeks ago, one of my favorite online shops, Shabby Fabrics, had a fabulous sale and I picked up these:
Woo hoo!!!! That's 88 fat-eighths of bright fabrics in a rainbow of colors. I'm afraid my picture does NOT do them justice. What a treat! In person they are absolutely gorgeous. My initial thought is to use them to try and make one of those gorgeous patterns from Kellie Wulfsohn of Don't Look Now (I'm thinking about the Rainbow Lollipops... but I haven't decided for sure). I'm not quite ready to commit to that yet though. So for now, I'll just gaze happily at my pile o' happy brights.
Also, kind of hiding to one side in that pile, is a pattern I've been eyeing for some time, the Happy Stacker Ring Toy by Heather Bailey. I think it will be a lot of fun to make for baby sometime in the near-ish future.
