Let's start with fabric. This sounds totally boring, but I love solids. I recently got my hands on a Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton Solids Color Card, and I don't know how I lived this long without it. Pure heaven.

As far as prints, my current favorite is pretty much any shade of Lizzy House Pearl Bracelet.

I also have a thing for the Running Stitch print from Patty Young's Lush line.
And I love this amazing Riley Blake Chevron fat quarter bundle that I (sort of) won at SNAP (thanks, Amy ;) This is one of those fabrics that I'm going to be afraid to cut into. I'll just look at it for a while :)
And pretty much anything polka dot makes me happy, too :)
One of my favorite sewing tools is my quarter inch piecing foot for my sewing machine. It has a guide on the right side that helps you sew a nearly perfect 1/4" seam every time. I use it all the time.

My bias tape maker is another sewing item I can't do without. I have a 25mm (1"), and this size has worked for every project I've ever needed bias tape for.

Now for something non-sewing related... Have you heard of SMASH books? I was introduced to them last year when I won one in a giveaway from Malia (of Yesterday on Tuesday). It took me a while to open it up and start using it, but I love it! And my four (almost five!) year old loved it so much that we got her one for Christmas. A SMASH book is kind of like a lazy man's scrapbook. It can be anything you want it to be. It's a pre-embellished journal and comes with a half-pen/half-gluestick attached. Genius! They just started selling SMASH books at Michaels and Target, so keep your eyes open for the books and really cute accessories.

Now for a tough question... what's my favorite project I've ever made? I think it's a toss up between my Little People tote bags...
and the Sherbet Pips quilts I made for my girls...
