Since Spring was once again interrupted this morning by SNOW!!!! (IT'S APRIL for crying out loud!) I did some retail therapy. I ventured to Hancock Fabric & boy did I make a FIND!!! Here is what I found. . . at $1.99/yd I was ecstatic. It's upholstery fabric. I know I will use it for something. I was actually considering making a headboard for our bed by covering a few pieces of wood with the fabric on the right. Then I would probably need to get a new comforter. And let's not forget pillows. . . oh the ideas! Maybe I could find some comforter type fabric that matches or accents it. Oh boy, I must be manic. Anyway, the colors didn't really come through on this pic (I need a new camera - another story there) but the darker color is a deep purplish color. . ooo, I'm just so so so excited!! This was WAY too cool of a shopping trip for me! I FINALLY bought NEW fabric - allbeit on the clearance rack - but it IS NEW!
Here's a little something I created this weekend. It's not pieced together yet. . .but I think it will go nicely onto a tote or whatever I decide. . . I might add some steam coming from the top. I also think I could design a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows in it. . .oh the ideas are endless!
