I did it! I went fabric shopping today! I ADORE fabric stores. I spend hours…yes that’s multiple hours every time. Fabric shopping for me can be an all day affair. Sometimes I go to all three stores in the same day….happiness!!! I live 45 miles from the stores, so you can bet that I will take my time when I get there, after all, there is no running right back because you forgot something!
I get a little crazy at the cutting table. There is something I don’t understand. I see people getting a quarter or a third of a yard cut. I look at them and think…wow, you must REALLY be good at sewing! Sewing envy? Maybe. Probably!
I don’t trust myself that much! I am so afraid of making a mistake I always get more than I need, and I never get less than a yard of anything….ever! I know it will be used for something at some point… and it saves me the long trip if I flub up the project.
When I get to the table, I always have all of my bolts in order as to how much I want from each one. I totally get frustrated when the line is held up by someone who decided to wait to plan their projects at the cutting table! I experienced that this trip. UGH… I don’t know if it is more the frustration of the person holding up the line or my excitement to take my fabrics home to get started! Is there anyone else out there who has any fabric store quirks or am I the only crazy one out there?
