Last week we were at Spotlight selectig some gumnut baby fabrics (below)for a quilt, and next to them was some Spot fabric. I could clearly see his brain ticking over; working out that he needed a good reason to buy them, and saying he wants to make Edward (his cousin) a teddy quilt for his 2nd birthday in August. How could I argue? So we came home with some Spot as well! He also has plans for a quilt for Eleanor's Care Bears for her birthday. And several times he's brought home pictures which he thought I might like to use when designing quilts.
(A note to any fabric manufacturers - it's wonderful to see fabrics from Australian childrens' books - how about Possum Magic, please?)
