The View from up here:
Last week I treated myself to a trip to the fancy fabric store in Los Gatos that I like to go to when internet shopping just isn't cutting it. Sometimes you just want to feel the fabrics, pile them up in various combinations, and drool shamelessly all over the place, and this is the place to do it. Titus was nice enough to come with me, having been bribed with a trip to the candy store located across the street. (The fact that he really had not choice in the matter played a part as well.) Well, look what happened. I walked out of there with a deceptively small bag jammed full of Anna Maria Horner fabrics. Her voiles really are the silkiest excuses for cotton I have ever met. I have been dreaming up (another) quilt for myself using some of her Innocent Crush fabrics, and this trip pushed me over the edge.
I'm exerting huge amounts of self-control every day to not cut into these beauties. First I must complete my preparations for this weekend's craft show, then I have a little buddy who needs a T-Rex for his birthday. There are also a few fabrics in this pile for some special gals' Christmas gifts... are you tired of reading about my sewing stress yet??? There really is more than quilt-dreaming going on around here, but for now you'll just have to take my word for it.
