…A fabric diet that is!
When I got home from ballet (with Sparkle Jane) Monday night there was a large box on the counter. “Something came for you,” said Husband.
“Oh, it’s fabric!”
“I figured that,” he replied.
Now, that was not strictly fair. First, I almost never buy fabric. I, for years now, mostly sew with scraps. Even other people’s scraps. I only buy backgrounds and backings and not too many of those. Second, I didn’t say I WOULDN’T buy fabric. Third, this was a Very. Good. Deal.
Last year I was the most fortunate winner of the 350 Block Challenge prize: A gift certificate to the Fat Quarter Shop. Wow! What luck. A person could get lost there, but I finally decided on (what else?) a grab bag.
Using the gift certificate and a discount coupon, I was able to get this lovely stack of beauties. Much of the fabric is solids and small prints or basics that I was thrilled to see. And just enough novelties to make it fun. Those hippos are darling. I hear something for grandbabies calling to me!
Thanks to Shelly, the sponsor of the 350 Block Challenge, and the fine folks at the Fat Quarter Shop. Ah, the delight of stash enhancement! I am certain there are at least 25 yards here. No guilt. Good thing I wasn’t on a diet!
