A Present for Myself!

I got myself a present today. I ordered this:


And this:

And this:


That's right, I ordered all of the Dolce fat quarters! Thirty four of them! That's eight and a half yards of fabric! Enough to make two quilts. I'm so excited!
You can check out these fabrics and tons of others at the Fat Quarter Shop.
Well, the pink sheath dress is done. Don't expect pics anytime soon, though. It's too cold here to take pics outside right now and we're expecting daytime highs in the single digits later this week. I really don't have a good spot to take photos in the house and I can't get a well lit shot indoors anyway. But someday in the near future I should have several finished projects to share.
As for the pink dress, I don't really like it. There are still some subtle fitting issues, which I'll share later when I have photos to illustrate, but the main problem with it is the fabric. I pressed the living daylights out of that dress and it's still sloppy looking. The fabric just didn't want to cooperate. Oh, well. It was a wearable muslin, right? I'll probably wear it once or twice just because I did put in the effort to finish it, but I'd really like to make it again out of something else.
In the meantime, I'm off to do something I hate- mending! Ugh!
Oh, yeah. Happy New Year!
