Sometimes It Takes Me a While to Get With the Program!

Ok, a couple weeks ago Fat Quarter Shop was having a half off some of their fabrics and I decided I would jump in on the deal.  Wow, I'm glad I did!  I don't live near any decent quilt shops so I mostly rely on the internet for my fabric resources, which works out well sometimes and other times not so much.  There are definitely occasions when I see fabric online that I think I would love only to feel lukewarm about it in person.  Then, there are times when the opposite is true. I had seen Tammis Keefe's fabrics online and was amazed how everyone was excited (in blogland) when the fabrics were reprinted.  I just didn't get it.  But now I do!  They are so lovely in person.  I also somehow missed out on the Bon Vivant and was able to get a fat quarter bundle at the same time.  These are also amazing in person--the maps and the poodles are my favorites. 
And there is my little OllieBear playing with the fabrics as I photograph them.  This is his last day as a baby:(  Tomorrow he turns one.  We can't imagine what life was like before him!!!  He has been a sweet little treasure to add to our family.

I know what you mean about fabrics. I have ordered some from the internet that I ended up not liking, and some that I have seen on the internet that I didn't like, I fell in love with when seeing them at the fabric store. Scales can be so out of whack when you are just looking at a picture. And your baby is so cute!
