"Oh Fabric Mart! Oh Fabric Mart!
I love your wonderful fabrics....
You fill my closet with ease and flair
You fill my heart so I don't have a care...
Oh Fabric Mart, Oh Fabric Mart
I love your wonderful bargains!!!!!"
(sung to Oh Christmas Tree!)
Thank God its March because I ordered fabric Monday evening and it had arrived when I walked in from a very exhausting day! Suddenly all seemed right with the world and I didn't have a care...okay, I know you won't get that last statement if you are not a "true" fabricaholic! As previously posted I bought 38 yards of fabric because Fabric Mart was having the mother of all sales....
So this is what I got:
5 yards of a rayon/linen in treebark
4 yards of a red linen
4 yards of a dark pumpkin linen
4 yards of a cornflower blue linen
5 yards of a rayon/poly/lycra (RPL) blend in dark taupe
which just happens to match the 2.5 yards of dark taupe pinstripe super 100 wool that I got from Fikret Fabrics last Saturday ~ woo hoooo!
6 yards of a poly/wool blend in a dark blue/periwinkle pinstripe and
2 yards of a periwinkle wool gabardine which coordinates with the pinstripe fabric
4 yards of a poly/rayon black crepe that is heavy and textured,
and finally 4 yards of a dark gray wool jersey
38 yards for the grand price of $137.40...it is amazing how spending a little money on fabric makes my whole day so much brighter! Ahhhh the possibilities that can come out of this box...ahhhhh the joy and pain that can spring forth...ahhhhh the outfits! Yes, I am one happy go lucky fabricaholic tonight!
I was gonna close with no more fabric for me for a fortnight but after looking it up on dictionary.com, I realize that a fortnight is only 14 days!!!! So I guess no more fabric for me for several fortnights! But I'm kewl and it's okay 'cause I got dreams in a box today!
