Rejected! And an Ode to Charity Fabrics
|Poo. At least I got the coupon.|
But you don't care about my donation woes, you want to know how the quilt is coming!
|The answer is, well.|
I was actually wigging out a little this afternoon because the red fabric originally hailed from Country Quiltworks, the store I almost cleaned out. Or would have. If I hadn't know Glenn would kill me, that is. Anyways, so I looked around this afternoon to see if it came down to it whether or not I'd be able to find more, or whether I'd have to substitute something else in, since I only have less than a yard.
|Iron. Is awesome. I am lacking it, apparently.|
Country Quiltworks was one of the 5 or so stores they had on record.
Luckily, The Fabric Shack has it in stock! HOORAY! I have them bookmarked just in case I run out, and if I do I will make an emergency order for a yard or two. It's such a lovely fabric too, I might buy some of the other fabrics from the collection. But if anyone buys out the red, I will hunt them down.
So I wanted to talk a little about my charity case fabrics. I know you all have them, those fabrics you just couldn't resist to plump up an order, or were on sale, or whatever. For some reason, you bought them on a whim. They're a little homely, a little off in color or design, but you thought, "I'll find a use for them surely. They'll go great with that green I've had kicking around forever."
|This was destined for the Marchen quilt... until Jess said no.|
|Impulse buy. Will probably never get to use. Except as a pillowcase.|
|Here's to you, Mr. "Color is never quite right for whatever I'm working on".|
College is awesome.
That is all.
