Shouldn't have

I shouldn’t have done that.

9 yards of this fabulous linen
with trees
and a cow
and a bridge and cars

Of all the things I should be doing yesterday, like tons of laundry, working on a piece with a deadline, and preparing hand work for Easter family time, shopping was not even on the list. Yet I’m sitting here with yards of new and thrifty fabric and yarn and big rolls and small rolls of fibre that’s neither fabric nor paper. It reminds me a little of Lutradur, so I’m guessing polyester something. Some rolls are definitely felt which I hope can take the heat from the iron; the sales lady had no idea.
I do need a bit of change, and think my new purchases will be fun to play with. Some of them are already destined for specific projects, so that makes me feel a little better about the unplanned and unnecessary shopping spree.

Most of the fabric went into the washing machine before I got the camera out, but look at these – how could I resist this red table cloth

or these adorable dogs on a French designer duvet cover?
I’m back on the list this morning though. Boooring…


  1. You haven't been banned from the fabric store yet? That linen is
    very cool, and another tablecloth, well HOW could you resist. Can't wait to see what emerges.

  2. Those DOGS! Those white flower balls on RED! LOVE!!! What a great, if unexpected, shopping trip. Have a wonderful Easter with family.

  3. Don't feel guilty. It's for the greater good of all!

  4. Oh, I think you should have. I know you'll do wonderful things with these!

  5. the unplanned and unnecessary shopping spree

    There isn't such a thing! LOLOLOL What treasures you found - love the tablecloth and duvet cover especially!

  6. Who could blame you? I can't wait to see what you do with all that wonderful fabric!

  7. Great fabric finds!! Some creative projects will come out of these for sure!

  8. The linen is MORE than fabulous. Love the dogs, too and the red. What a fun shop!

  9. Hi Nina Lise,

    You would have so regretted it if you hadn't...think of it as naughty, but nice :)

    Hugs, Sharon
