I was fine...really I was! I mean I was even surfing the internet fabric sites and had NO and I mean NO desire to purchase anything. I got tripped up by fellow blogger, yeap...it's Adrienne's fault! *LOL*
Y'all know I've been experiencing an extreme case of borderprintedness...and when Adrienne posted this piece, I just had to have it...especially when she made it so easy by sending me the link and telling me the cost $3.95 per yard. But I was strong...I bought just this one piece:
Then I went to Metro Textiles and usually I can get out of there without purchasing anything when I'm with a group of people...but once again a fellow blogger got me caught out there! This time it was AllisonC. I've had two yards of that fabric for over a year. I was just going to make a shift dress with it, with the black portion of it being the body and the border up at my bustline. Then Allison used it the other way and it made think of a Sophie Theallet dress that Michelle Obama wore last year, and I needed more yardage. So on Tuesday, I bought 3 additional yards:
Finally, by the time I made it back to Metro Textiles on Friday, there was no will power left and when I walked in and saw this lightweight stretch cotton by the door...I just had Kashi cut me three yards. It's so darn hot here and another tank dress made from this with a orange cardi will be great.
So that's how I fell off the wagon. I didn't buy a lot of yardage and still haven't seen anything on the internet fabric sites that I must buy yard upon yard of...but there are 9 additional yards here that need to become something and something fast! *LOL*
Ladies, I would like to thank you for the inspiration and I do appreciate you sharing your finds with me! *smile*
...as always, more later!
