Today was NOT a good day at work for me! Today was the kind of day that gives me a better understanding of how someone goes plum loco and ends up killin' people! So to avoid any serious jail time and losing my opportunity to vote for Obama on Tuesday ('cause every vote counts!), I hit the streets in search of a yard or two of fabric. I seriously needed something to soothe my soul because I was planning on jackin' someone up!
I headed over to my man, Kashi, at Metro Textiles knowing that I would find something that would bring a smile to my face and joy to my beleaguered soul. Of course I was NOT disappointed! Now right here I need to stop and pat myself on the back...because I was in a foul, foul mood when I boarded the "C" Train for Times Square. However, I did not go overboard and purchase hundreds of dollars and yards and yards of fabric.
Instead I purchased 5 yards of a wool/poly/lycra doubleknit (thanks Meg for letting me know he had some!), 5 yards of a rayon stretch lining in nude and 2 yards of a black/white paisley knit. I escaped with only 12 yards...12 yards of retail therapy! Now this totally up blows my stats for the month but I don't care! I don't even care that I don't really have any place to put this! All I care about is that I spent some serious time out of the office (y'all don't think I did that in a hour and went back to work now do you?), calmed the heck down and was able to deal with the 2.5 hours I had left - especially since an hour of it was spent in a meeting.
Nude rayon stretch lining, black doubleknit, blk/wht paisley knit
black doubleknit and wht/blk paisley knit
nude lining and black doubleknit (can you tell I'm loving the doubleknit!)
Okay that's it, I'm out! I have fabric to fondle and a new Threads to read!!!!
