The first store I went to in Springfield, Oregon is called 'Something to Crow About'. It's a very lovely store that I've been in and out of for about 10 yrs. whenever we chance to be in the area. Normally I head right over to the homespuns and grab whatever is new, but this time I spent most of my time drooling over the reproduction fabrics in an agony of indecision. There is never enough money....
The next store my husband took me to in Eugene is called 'Piece by Piece'. I've only went one other time almost two years ago, but it is a fabulous store if you want modern fabric. So much eye candy that I was dazzled once again and I'm not 100% sold on modern fabrics if you know what I mean.
In both stores I stuck to the fat quarter selections and only bought according to 'in the moment love' instead of looking at a list of what I might happen to need. Today I finally had a chance to look at what I bought and play with it up next to some of my stacks-of-lovely-fabric-intended-for-future-projects. The ten fabrics I laid out in front are ones that key in very well at least one of those stacks! Some of the fat quarters are the exact piece of fabric that makes the whole entire stack of fabric sing! Isn't it amazing how that happens? Honestly, I just bought what it felt like I couldn't live without. Yay for the early anniversary present! Can't wait to play a little more after I get this stuff washed up and put where it belongs.
