There’s only so much blame I can place on my friends (one friend in particular lately). In between classes this week, she asked what I wanted to do and I said “can we go to the quilt shop?” Oh, sure . . she could have said NO! But, she didn’t . . she drove me right to the closest quilt shop. We both enthusiastically walked into that shop, headed straight to the sale shelves, loaded up, found a few things from the not on sale shelves, had our fabric cut, paid our bills, started to walk out of the shop and ran into two sisters . . one of whom had taken up knitting socks after she sat behind me on a bus trip for hours and hours while I was knitting socks. They told me about a yarn shop nearby which was owned by their niece so . . I said to my friend “can we go to the yarn shop?” And . . she drove me over there!
I don’t feel bad about the fabric (though I really don’t ever feel bad about my purchases) because most of this is already designated for a project.
The four fabrics on the right go with the fabric on the right . . not the same collection or anything but they do match and I think I can get the look I’m trying to get, though I may not even use the fabric on the left in this particular quilt.
A couple of batiks with no purpose in mind but I liked the.
Yarn . . pretty yarn; soft, fluffy yarn. Enough yarn for 8 pairs of socks.
Really . . I’m not adding anything else to the sock yarn or fabric stash for the rest of this year!
