Also check ebay - out of curiosity I searched ebay and etsy - one person on Etsy is selling a yard of Mario fabric for $10 plus shipping and on ebay there are several listings for mario appliques (so you can cleverly place an applique where you need it and use plain fabric Wink  Only one person has mario fabric there right now and it's a total rip - a piece about the size of a fat quarter and it's going to $5.50 plus shipping. sigh...
You might be better off with the applique or something like that possibly...

but definitely do a google search.  You might get lucky there - novelty prints like that can be hard to find - they come, then they go and then they're gone for good... or at least a long time.  Cry

Oh!  For you Dr. Seuss lovers though - coming this fall to a store near you - Dr Seuss fabric!!  Yay!!  It'll be by Kauffman so if your local store carries Kauffman fabrics, start nagging them to order it!

OK, so I was serious when I said I had to have a string garden. So I un-potted my much-neglected orchid and made it my first experiment with this. It might actually be better for it, because (now that I've done some research I've learned something) orchids are air plants and grow on the branches of trees and stuff in the wild. Their roots need a lot of circulation to thrive, so I think this will work wonderfully. Also, orchid roots are naturally in a ball, so there wasn't any dirt involved.

And, since I didn't post any pictures of my garden when I got it planted, here are some now.

The whole thing:


This is all in the walkway of our front yard. Our back yard is completely shaded in the summer, which is a great respite from the Alabama heat, but not so great for tomatoes. So instead of digging up our yard, we decided to go with containers, which we've done before.

Nom nom nom ... I can't wait for that first tomato sandwich!


Cherry tomatoes:


The cukes are beginning to grow, too:


And basil. Can't live without lots of basil (and pesto!):


I'm most proud of this little guy.


All the other plants (and a bunch more not pictured, like green peppers, more tomatoes, parsley and dill) were seedlings when I bought them, but I grew this one from a cutting from the basil plant above. It's the first time I've ever successfully done that! I think I'm gonna do a couple more, because basil grows really well here.

OK, time to do some actual crafting now!

Wow Pjherb that quilt is beautiful!

Deeder I love all your plants and herbs. I need to grow my own basil too. We love to make our own spaghetti and pizza here. Tongue

Thanks for the heads up on the fabric girls. I did look at those "rip-offs" on ebay. Pft, I would have to salvage every bit of scrap to make 1 measly project.  I might check out etsy in a bit, but will most likely do an applique type of thing.  Maybe I can convince Dh I need an embroidery machine for my birthday, anniversary, or Christmas? All are towards the end of the year, so I should plan out my wish list, hahaha.  Grin

Deeder that looks awesome! I hope your plant thrives now Smiley I have yet to take pictures of mine, it looks like after the string is wrapped around them that they hold their shape amazingly well! Its been raining here for the past 2 days now on and off now, so hopefully it will let up so I can find some places for them and get some pictures!!

Thank you so much. I will put it to good crafting use. I already have a long list of things I may get with it...The list exceeds the prize though, so I will have to prioritize.

hmm. How much fabric would you be looking for with a mario theme? I have 2 left thumbs when it comes to sewing so I'm really clueless (I just bought a yard of quilt batting for my sis to sew me a knitting needle roll....she burst out laughing when she saw it, and asked if my needles had grown that she'd need that much....).
I'm asking because a new store just opened in the city near me (today actually) and they have a Ginormous fabric section. I am hoping to get back near the end of the week and can see if they have anything that might work for you Smiley
Only problem is that I'm in Canada so shipping may be more than usual (guessing you're likely in the USA. I WISH we'd adopt your flat rate boxes up here. Our Canada Post is insane atm. Last thing I sent to the states I actually used Fedex because they were cheaper!  Shocked).
If you'd like me to peek at what they have just let me know and what sort of pattern/theme you were wanting. Smiley

Grats Deanna! I felt as busy as you were, with graduations, birthdays and holidays.  Undecided Takes up too much crafting time, but it can be a nice break.

Not looking for too much Mario or game themed fabrics. A yrd and one half? Enough to make a laptop sleeve and a small pocket game sized cozy. Hopefully I can find something that fits his Geeky needs.  Cheesy Maybe Joann's will have something? It will never hurt to look, unless your my husband or our debit card.  Grin
