Did you notice that little picture of fabric on my 12 on the 12th grid? I thought I would tell you a little more about it.
I was wandering the aisles of our local fabric store Mill Ends. It's a hard little shop to describe. The fabrics are mostly seconds, though there are a few new things to be found. Actually I wish that I had gone with someone who had more sewing sense than I do. I'm sure many of you would be much better at unearthing treasures in the giant piles of remnants.
Anyway, I was wandering around the cotton aisle when I spotted that fabric and my heart stopped. As soon as I recovered I wondered why in the world I had to have it. I had no ideas for it...no patterns in mind...but I bought it anyway. I'm practicing the craft of not ignoring such a visceral reaction.
Later as I was cleaning out my email inbox I spotted this:
Maybe the fabric reminded me of this dress? Just a little? Maybe. Oh well. Either way I'll probably make a skirt out of it. I've been gathering momentum to make this little number that has been making the rounds in blogland. Here's hoping this little cut of fabric will be the winner. And to hoping that it was worth trusting my instincts.
