Oh GJ's, you've done it AGAIN....

I went to GJ's Discount Fabrics yesterday to buy some more of this Michael Miller spot fabric to finish the bib. Oh Lordy... it's just HEAVEN upstairs!! EVERYWHERE I LOOKED I saw fabric I NEEDED!!!
The new Amy Butler furnishing weight fabrics are to-die for (or buy and make bags from...). And this range below (designers name escapes me...!!) from FreeSpirit is also a fabulous furnishing quality. PERFECT FOR BAG-MAKING. And I spied this (below) and had to have some.. there was 1.5 metres left on the roll, and at only $15 per metre, well.. what started out as "a little dress for my wee gal" idea has turned into a dress, matching hat and a bit extra to play with....
I didn't dare look in the back room.... although I was distracted by the New Look pattern stand on the way out. Bought a little pattern for the wee dress in the cute fabric. A little birdie tells me that the patterns will be going on sale next Wednesday ($5 each)..... shhhh.

Love the spotty fabric - your bibs are so cute! Such a practical design.

Super nice fabrics. Those Amy Butler and Denyse Schmidt furnishing weight ones are crying out to be made into bags (and/or hats).

love all those fabrics you have bought and I can just see a little dress in that last one. Can't wait to see it. I am actually making one of your bags at the moment for a sample in the the new Anna Maria Horner dec weight fabric. It's great.

I think you've convinced me I need to go there! I used to live right near there, but didn't sew back then, now I'm quite a distance away. I'd better save my pennies before I go...

ooh Nikki, you scored some great fabric there. The red spot is lovely as is the Denyse Schmidt pink ribbon flowers....

I'm very excited to do another of your courses (I'm in the group that BigCat's Emporium has arranged)..

Hi Nikki
I love how you said "fabric you needed", not wanted :) Look forward to see what you're going to create with it.
