My birthday was this past week and I celebrated by treating myself to some fabric! (I also ended up with a terrible cold, so the fabric really was a highlight to an otherwise icky day.) I hit up a Craftsy sale and also sprung for a Southern Fabric daily special, but I'm going to spread the buys out over a couple posts so that it doesn't seem quite so glutinous :-P
I got two charm packs of Ready, Set, Go by Ann Kelle/Robert Kaufman. Two reasons for this purchase: 1) if Bean is a boy, I'll make his quilt from these because the colors coordinate with the other brights in the nursery; 2) if Bean's not a boy, it's never bad to have boy-friendly prints on hand. I especially like the bright color palate, as well as the mixer prints and the bicycles. I actually almost bought some yardage of the bicycles to make a crib sheet!
Craftsy also had some Aurifil thread sets on sale, so I got the white-black set. I've started sewing with the spool I got from my Fabric.com purchase a while back, and while I'm not completely a convert, it is nice how the thread is so thin and takes up less space in the seam allowance. I think others have commented that it's also less linty, but I don't know that I've noticed that yet.
So that's week 1 of the birthday buys! I think I'll milk these purchases for three more posts - a whole month of birthday fun!
