So today I started the day off over at my favorite store - Chapters. I searched through the clearance shelves with my green tea in hand and found "Baby Costumes" and "Crafts for Baby". They were only $5 each! I don't have any kids yet but the costume one is great for kids under the age of 2, so it will be a while before I make anything from that one, but for $5 I couldn't resist. The craft one has got simple ideas to make for an expecting mother as shower gifts or for your own bundle of joy when you are expecting.
I can now finaly say I am the proud owner of my very first Amy Butler book "InStiches". I've only flipped through the pages and I'm already planning my next visit to the fabric store.
I actually do have 2 projects right now that I need to start. The first is another doll bed and quilt for my other niece and the other is a pirate doll for my nephew. They both have their birthdays in March so I better get cracking.
I also have a bag that I started in November and put aside through the holidays. Now that I look at it, I'm not so sure I like it. It looks like I am going to be taking it apart and starting again this weekend.
I have been asking around and trying to figure out how to get a versitle fabric stash started. Right now I have been only buying fabric from the local fabric store when I start a project. I would love if anyone out there has some tips on getting a great stash started.
