I dropped Jack off at school this morning and headed off to the thrift store. I was there a few minutes before they opened, so I decided to see what the fabric store nearby held. I have been looking high and low for some more of the dot fabric I used in the chicken quilt . (I bought some off Ebay that I thought would be close, but the dots are still too big. And I need more of that fabric!)
Just imagine my delight when I discovered a treasure trove of those 1930's reproduction fabrics that I love and adore so much! I almost fell over from the excitement. And how cute is that umbrella fabric?
Speaking of fabric stores, do you sewers out there know that there is trouble in River City? Wal-mart is closing their fabric departments, Hancock Fabrics are closing a large number of their stores, and apparently Hobby Lobby is no longer going to carry fabric either.
Honestly, all of that surprises me because it seems like more women than ever are sewing, but perhaps my vision is a bit skewed. I have no idea how some people are going to buy fabric locally anymore given all the closings...
I am off to start the next napping pillow with some of my new stash!
