Wee !

I'm a big fan of Hillary's blog and her work, which always has a sense of whimsy about it. Since I've been hooked on sewing lately, I printed out the free "Wee Bunny" pattern to make a softie for Monkey Boy (who hasn't gotten one yet). I went searching thru my fabric stash, which I found exceptionally uninspiring. It's been *a long time* since I bought any fabric (I've been too busy acquiring yarn). Then I received an email from Michelle about a sale at the local quilt shop....dumped the kiddos on the Dearest and went shopping. Here are the spoils (click for bigger images):

sale fabrics
sale fabrics, $3 and $4 a yard
Love that middle pink one, very Amy Butler-ish


retro fabrics
some fun, retro fabrics...check out the 'spirograph' one!(2nd from the left)

some chenille for more softies

Then I came home and made this:

ETA: The web addy for the quilt shop. :) Did I mention that I signed up for a class on Log Cabin quilting? I used to quilt years ago and recently decided that I needed to make a quilt (like this) out of the boys' baby clothes. The class will be a good refersher course for me, and hopefully I don't start hoarding fabric the way I hoard yarn.

I love the spirograph one! I have to post pictures of my fabric stash additions, too.

I love all the softies you've been making. Thanks for the link to Hilary's site. It might inspire me a bit...
