fabulous fabs

So Carolyn and I did no knitting whatsoever during our trip to Australia. This does not mean, however, that the trip was completely craftless. We went to a fabric store in Sydney and peered into windows of ribbon and button shops (they were all closed, or shut, if you are Australian). We also went to a cute fabric shop in Darwin, and when we reached Melbourne we happened upon a really great fabric store: Patchwork on Central Park. They were very nice in there, and the owner even let me snap a photo of her:

The shop had, pant pant, Japanese imports. I restrained myself (I’m not telling about Carolyn) and just got a few small pieces:

Can you see the mushrooms on the pink and green fabric? I had to get the crocodile one, of course, since Australia is known for all their crocs. Now, what to make?
