fabulous fabric

My love for fabric was reborn when my sister and mom gave Avery a quilt for her nursery. I am now obsessed and love to frequent our local quilting shops. Since my intentions are never to make a quilt *gasp* it took the sweet ladies that work there a while to trust me with their colorful threads, but now they know it's in good hands. Although I wish I had the skills and the time to quilt I will post some crafty stuff I've made with these folded, frayed fabrics! But only if you "ooooh" & "aaaahh!" despite the fact that I am far from being a seamstress:) Here's a thank you in advance!

I love that card... and I really love the fabric. I bought some really cute michael miller fabrics and made an apron (a la candice stringham and her mom)...
that green print kinda looks like the fabric i used 'cept mine was brown. I can't wait to ooooh and ahhh over your creations. and now that my HOF entry is in, i can get back to my yummy fabrics...I emailed them and told them they should make paper!
