Yeah how many times have you said THAT?
That was me this morning before my drive to Jersey - all I needed was a zipper and some thread...but there was a Memorial Day/Weekend Sale! Which means I needed way more than one or two things.
I needed piping for a nice detail on the blouse I am sewing ..and then I needed cording for something at the shop and then there was the quilting section....
I am not a quilter per say - I make the occasional baby quilt (yes Jeff and Martha, there will be one for you too) but not large quilts. One would think that I did, I mean with the evergrowing collection of Fat Quarters and random yardage of beautiful cotton prints. Smooth cotton fabrics - with that lovely nice weight to them. I love Amy Butler prints, along with Kaffe Fassett (very Klimt like some of them), and the Michael Miller prints are fabulous too!
I like fabric with a sense of humour.
Then there are all of these amazing novelty prints with a Retro feel to them - such as 1950's housewives doing laundry or baking in the kitchen. Or that swirly 60's groovy feeling.
I also like asian prints - such as geisha's and sushi :) - not necessarily Geisha's eating sushi - but you get my point.
So what do I make with these fabrics, you wonder - if I am not the big quilter that my stash says I should be? - Purses, sewing notion cases, lingerie bags, cloth napkins are so nice, tea cozies (can never have too many), Knitting needle and notions cases...and nothing at all....I think this is really when I need to say:
Well enough for now! If i keep looking at my fabric fabric stores that are on line, I might just buy more fabric....and we can't have that - can we? (YES!!!!!!!!)
