Fabriholic

i think i might be addicted! These are the fabrics that i ordered over the past two weeks. I just loved them and could not help myself. I have plans for some and others i just could not walk away from. i know it is bad...but so so pretty. i think i might use the birds for Avery, and the seahorses and octopi for a shower curtain(maybe), and the rest was just irresistible. i better keep on making.
Besides ordering more fabric than one girl can use at once i have been catching up on unfinished projects and crafting up birthday presents for new little friends. This crocheted dodecahedron(did i even spell that right) was a challenge to me from a friend. She was hoping i could make it for her little man for his birthday and i did it!!!
This is a little set i did for Avery's new friend. i love the IKEA hippo fabric. I work well under pressure, the party is in just a few days. Bring it on...what is next?

they're all so cute! I have a fabric habit too, but I never make anything so I've cut myself off. Love the crochet dodecawhatever! Where's the pattern??
