Per my promise to myself, I finally made it to a small, locally owned fabric shop last week. While Keep Me In Stitches doesn’t have a huge fabric selection, the fabric they do have is gorgeous — it’s all about quality, not quantity, at this store. I spoke with the owners, and they’re just so proud of their store and their fabric selection. As well they should be.
And guess what else? They have Amy!!!!!!!
It’s pretty much impossible to face a huge display of Amy Butler and not walk away with at least a yard or two. If it weren’t for the price, I would have walked away with a lot more.
I used the green polka-dot fabric in the reversible bib I made for a little girl this weekend — the first of two bibs for my friend’s special order.
And while I know I said that I would cut the binding on the bias the next time I made a bib, I couldn’t bear to slice into my brand new Amy Butler fabric at a diagonal. So, again, I fought (and won!) to get that straight piece of binding around the curve of the bib.
While I had the camera out to take pictures of the bib, I tried to snap a few shots of Quinn, who was lying in a sunbeam on the window sill. When he gets into a really good mood, he can’t sit still. I call it “squirmy.” It’s like he’s so happy and excited, he doesn’t know what to do with all his energy.
As you can see, Quinn is in a very good mood.
