Use up our Fabric? BwaaaHaHaaaa!
I have a little story to tell about meeting an internet friend in person yesterday... I am a member of quiltart online fiber artists from around the globe. This love of fabric is universal!
Two of us met at my local guild quilt show, and got a chance to connect in person after months of emails. We took a chance and it paid off! More about meeting people tomorrow!
After we looked at quilts together, we talked about our collective stashes.
We decided, absolutely no fabric purchases today!
After all we have so much it's hard to find a particular fabric when we want it.
Surely we have what we "need" by now!
It's right now, overflowing baskets waiting to be filed with it's peeps.
It's a colorful sculpture in the way!
It is an avalanche waiting to happen!
It's a colorful testament to my taste!
It is choices, a palette, comfort and excitement!
Back to yesterday's story. We could buy trims, threads, jewelry but really, no more fabric. And we supported each other in our resolve. Until...
we bought more fabric. My purchase was the basket of two hand dyed half yards, total $7 in the members' store. What a find!! Had to get it!!
Admit it... you'd have bought it too!
Now where is it going to live??
