That is, my resolve to back off the fabric purchases in favor of diminishing my ever burgeoning stash! I really thought this was going to have somewhat of a positive outcome but I weakened……’caved’……melted……bought!!!!! The thing is, yes, I visited my LQS (local quilt shop) last Saturday with the goal of picking up some fabric for QOV (quilts of valor)….and that is exactly what I did! I knew there would be some reimbursement from the quilt group that I belong to ‘cuz what I didn’t use in a QOV would find its way in to the group’s stash that is available for everyone to use in such donated projects. But, that was like the little crack in the damn that grew. Last Monday was quilt meeting day. I knew there would be fabric there for purchase but I felt I was up to the challenge, after all, hadn’t I just satisfied the “I must buy” urge???? Arriving early, I was greeted by all this…………….. And this………… I mean, what’s a gal to do???!!!!! The fabrics were from a quilt shop that had closed and the gal had opened another (and stocked it with its own inventory) in a neighboring town. These bolts had found their way in to the basement of her home….which is now sold and must be packed and moved!! The fabric must go!!!! (and not to the new house!!!!!) Okay, so I was doing her a favor(!?) and helping her out so she wouldn’t have to take so much back!! That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!!!!! Am lovin’ these fabrics
and have no specific ideas in mind…..but they are ‘neutrals’…..they will fit in so many different color arrangements…..really!!!! But, then, I saw this little bundle of 1 yard cuts…..”score” ……..my colors! And I have a partial bolt of dragonfly print fabric at home in this color-way!!! Yippee!! (I think?)No shopping for me for a long time…..I promise! (fingers crossed behind back and smiling). Sigh…..Well, an artist needs paints and a chef needs ingredients….and….and…….
