It started out innocently enough. I was finishing a project that had been sitting in my to do pile for years; making an Easter tablecloth from a cute bit of fabric I found. I put the top together, then decided I needed to put some flannel on the back. I didn't have a piece big enough, so I went to Wal-Mart to buy some. That seemed alright. I was finishing a project, I didn't have what was needed.
Then I stopped at Goodwill on the way home and found two giant pieces of flannel. How could I not buy them, after JUST purchasing some new because I didn't have any in my stash? Also there was a neat bit of fabric with Asian writing. I couldn't pass that either. Oh, and another pretty sheet.
That was just the beginning. Then I needed to buy fabric for the graduation quilt for my nephew. I made an earnest attempt to find things at home that I could use, but my fabrics are mostly pink, or with flowers. He didn't want that. So then I had to go to the fabric store again, and I always wanted one of these "Jelly Rolls" of pre-cut strips, and they had one on sale, and I had a bit of Christmas money left, so I got one.
Then I had to go back to Wal-Mart to look for a bit more fabric for the quilt and THEY had jelly rolls on super clearance. This is where things really get out of hand. I bought four. But for the same price as the one I got at the other store! Still...
Sheesh. I'd better get to work.
