My name is Anna, and I am a Fabric-aholic
OK, I confess. I have an addiction. I cannot resist the chance to buy more fabric! I went to a Ridiculous Sale this weekend. And boy, was it Ridiculous! This sale was at my favorite quilt shop in Kerrville, TX, Creations. They have purchased the building that is across the parking lot from their current building so that they can host more classes and even quilting retreats! Well, they opened up that building and stocked it with all their leftover fabric and such that they wanted to get rid of for ridiculously low prices. I ended up with a large under the bed storage bag full of remnants left over from the beautiful samples they’ve made for display in their shop. I also purchased another storage bag full of the legs of old blue jeans! Now, what in the world am I going to do with these new acquisitions? Hmm, hopefully make something fun and useful! I am thinking pillows, quilts, and totebags galore. We also went to a church thrift shop that is across the street from Creations, and scored a TON of wool clothing that we intend to deconstruct and felt so it can be used in penny rugs! The looks from the ladies who worked there when they saw us with our piles of wool clothing were pretty funny. And it was actually rather difficult to explain exactly what we intend to create with these treasures. Well, you’ll see… It was a relaxing, fun and yet exciting weekend. Oh, did I mention I took Friday off so we could go to the sale early? I am very glad that I did because there wouldn’t have been much left on Saturday to get! Some people say they will work for fabric, I will TAKE OFF work for fabric! I call it a mental health day. Luckily, nothing major happened while I was gone. I will post pictures of projects with my new goodies soon. Until next time.
Happy Stitches to You,
