Has This Ever Happened To You?

You run to the fabric store because you need just one thing to finish a project. 
Usually it is something small, a notion, pattern or a yard of fabric or trim. 

Here is what I went to the fabric store for:
I needed to try another pattern for my Week #2 project: the fleece hat for Lily Bear.

And here is what I came out of the fabric store with:
Ever happened to you?

$8.00 pattern vs.$100.00+ fabric and patterns.

Fortunately for me, this was mostly paid for with gift cards I got from Christmas (thank you dad and step-mom as well as Joanna).
Hopefully we will see some of this fabric in the next few weeks being used in the weekly projects.

  2. Yes it is dear. Smile and nod :)

  3. That's funny. Whenever I say "I'm only going to be a minute" my son says sure, you never take less than an hour. I always answer with but I know what I want, I'll just get it and leave. He's over that one too! SewBaby - I read her blog and I don't even have little kids. At least I think it's the same person. Have a good one, stopped by from The Selvage Blog. Good job on the pouch.
