I innocently dropped in at Fabricland yesterday to buy a spool of white thread. What could be more bland than that. Oops! There was a sale of quilting fabric at buy one get the next 3 metres free. Then I spied the lovely Oriental looking piece and I was lost. I got 2 M of it and one of each of the others because the best part of the sale is that you don't have to buy 4M of the same fabric. There was a minimum of a 1M cut but who would want less than a metre anyway. The worst thing is that the sale is on for quite some time yet and I am almost sure to have to go back for more. Oh well, my stash is not all that big yet so I don't feel guilty. It's just the problem of which ones to take. There were at least a dozen others that I wanted but none as much as the oriental print. The next problem is what to do with it. How do you cut into something like that? I was even thinking of some item of clothing like a robe or skirt. Any ideas?
