One of my local fabric stores has a "fat quarter Friday" sale every week. Buy 3, get one free. This week I decided I needed to treat myself to a fat quarter Friday. I needed some more yellow, orange, and blue for my newest project: the Bottled Rainbows quilt along. I've been intrigued by this quilt ever since Rachel at Stitched in Color first mentioned it, but I didn't think I had the stash for it. Darn if she isn't persuasive though! She kept posting links for scraps and Kona bundles, and pretty soon I could no longer resist. I can't WAIT until my rainbow gets here so that I can start sewing!
While I'm waiting though, I also have been trying out a new craft! Crewel! I've wanted to try this for a while, but I knew I wanted to start with a kit since I didn't know what I was doing. Most of the kits out there, however, are... a little grandma-ish. Sorry grandmas of the world, but that's not my style! Then I found Tako Fibers on Etsy. Oh my goodness. I love everything about her kits. Super easy instructions, modern designs, and even the packaging is so amazingly adorable. Love, love, love.

I think I'm going to turn it into a pillow. Fantastic, no?
Oh, and I'm also finally quilting my Pop Garden quilt. Yay!
