First of all--a SHOUT OUT to my friend, Vickie, who is now a featured designer on Moda's Bakeshop --cute little projects using their charm packs, jelly rolls, etc. And now her second 'recipe' is on there. Go check all the darling projects. Congratulations Vickie!!
Second, I've been having a bit of a struggle with my evil twin, Kathy (why Kathy? I don't know, but a lot of people call me Kathy by mistake--maybe it's when her naughtiness flares up??). Vickie mentioned going to a quilt shop and getting Kaffe Fassett's fabric and a lot of other neat fabrics for 50% off!! The whole entire shop is 50% off! Whoa--now that is some sale. So, 'Kathy' starts scheming to make the 1 1/2 hour trip over there to check them out. I mean, that's a darn good price! She had ALL kinds of reasons why it was a good idea. Great price that you rarely see, I LOVE that stuff, great prices, I love it, you know the story. She pretty much had convinced me that it was okay to go over and buy more fabric, because it was a really good price! I was all set to call my friend, tell her to get dressed and we're going on a road trip. Then the real me emerged and told me to get over to that studio and take out ALL the Kaffe fabric I have and figure out exactly where I'm lacking. Well........first there is this little tub--and oh look, a few projects that were started and forgotten about..........hmmm, here are the NEW bags that hubby got for my birthday..............oops, here's that pile I got what? 2 years ago?? And then there is the basket full that I got maybe 4 or 5 years ago? And I need MORE? ROFLOL. Nope, can't justify it. NO matter how I tried, I knew it was wrong, just plain wrong to go buy MORE to store in my room! And now you can understand my need to BUST stash--not increase it!
So, "Kathy" slinked back to the house and then reminded me of the local quilt store that is closing her doors in 2 more days and ALL fabric is $3/yard! I did go for a friend, HONEST! But... I did buy (3) 4 yard pieces for backings. All legal, according to Stashbusters. And my yardage is low--so I feel confident it will get used. So--I guess you can my evil twin won a little battle, but that's more justified than buying more, just cuz. And tell "Kathy" to quit pouting.
