Today I ran into the fabric store because I needed to find some thread to hem a pair of Jess's jeans - she is going back to school this weekend.
I haven't been in the fabric store for many months probably because I have been going to yarn shoppe's lately instead. But walking into the fabric store caused a magical thing to happen. It ignited a spark. I walked along the rows of fabric allowing my hand to gently rub against each one much like a playing card attached in the spokes of a bicycle wheel. The earthy smell of new textiles wafted to my nostrils. I began seeing the fabric made up into different projects.
I made my way back to the home decor fabrics. And I bought a piece of this yardage.
For a special project I found in this book.
And while I was at the cutting counter I found this fabric. Although I have no idea what I'm going to do with it, I bought a yard of it just because it makes me happy when I look at it. Do you have any ideas?
I think I see some sewing in my very near future (like this weekend :))
