Sunday Stash #241 – (No) Fabric Left Behind.
So I have a little success story to share with you today. I spent this past week in Hong Kong, and I didn’t buy a single piece of fabric! Wha-wha!? I know, right? I even managed to find a fabric shop, I went in it, I perused the shelves, and I walked away empty-handed. That’s called self-control people, and apparently I still have some of it buried down deep. I’m obviously tapping into the reserve tanks, so I need to make sure I get them filled with some healthy distraction soon.
However, I didn’t have it when I went to Wal-Mart in Gulf Shores, Alabama. I’m not normally a Wal-Mart fabric buying person (no hate!), but as I was shopping for my Pop-Tarts, I wandered into the fabric aisle. I found this funky, illustrated airplane fabric for the collection by Emma & Mila, so I picked up a third of a yard for like two dollars! What was even better, I found this fat quarter of metallic anchors stuffed in the display without a price. I asked the friendly Wal-Mart customer service representative at the cutting counter (and then I laughed) how much it was. “Oh someone left that here, you can have it,” she says to me. What type of crazy person leaves behind fabric? So obvs I stashed it in my back pocket and tried not to look like a thief as I walked out the front door!
And if you must know, brown sugar and cinnamon Pop-Tarts.
