I needed some yellow for the borders of my Irish chain top, so I went online and purchased this stack of yellow called "candy corn." While I was online, I found some sale fabric I liked, so I snapped it up: some cute chicks and dogs,
The package came Friday, but I was impatient about having enough yellow, so I went to the J-store.
Where I found an adequate yellow and two other must-have colors. Then I turned around and saw this:
I was on the phone with mother discussing yellow when I spied it, and I had to hang up. I was over-come with fabric lust. The photo doesn't do it justice, of course. It is a vintage-looking cactus print. I love it.
I had to have a bit of this kitty print; although I am not sure what I'll do with it. MY CAT is on the fabric, so I couldn't pass it up. Right?
The past week I had stopped at a garage sale on the way to work and scored a couple of pieces of fabric:
I love border prints
and bold florals.
That's why I have been staying clear of shopping. I have little restraint in the face of bargains and beauty.
But, I have lots of yellow fabric now. Of course I may not even use any on the Irish chain. I am thinking the green and red will be better frames around it.
Is anyone one else in a stitching malaise? Is it the weather? Or may I blame work week stress for the weekend collapse of my sewing plans? Or maybe I have shopper's fatigue?
