Then a yard or two of an Asian red and black silk print and several yards of red moire taffeta (p9olyster), perfect for Christmas crafts. Then I got a bunch of decorator samples, about one foot square in a bunch of cute kiddie prints, hopefully for appliqueing on clothes or something. Love those little froggies.
Of course, when I went to work on felt purses the next day, none of these matched for lining the ones I was working on! That's the problem with buying fabric without a specific purpose in mind: You have to have quite a collection to have a good selection for what you need. That is why I swore I would stop buying craft supplies unless I had a specific purpose in mind. Of course, that means usually paying full price and lots of runs to Joann's and Michael's. I like thrifting for fabric and supplies, but with so little storage room, I hope I can find room to keep all these cool fabrics that I don't have any idea what I'm going to use them for. How I envy all of your with your studios and craft rooms!
