Some things from the week : The fabulous fabric I bought last week at the Crafty Planet in Minneapolis. The cute horse fabric will become a skirt I think, for Jaia. The 2 purple are Echino fabrics – I absolutely love them. Heavy almost linen like.  The other flowered one I bought just because I…

Introducing Charlie and Faye! They are both girls, Charlie’s name came with her but Row changed Faye’s from Star.
