Fabric Shopping at last!

It's been a busy past few days around home what with it being school vacation week and all. Yesterday I went with my high school senior to the award ceremony where she received her first of what we hope will be many scholarships for college. On our way home, we stopped at our local Walmart, which for the record is NOT my favorite place to shop for fabric but sadly the only place around here. I was looking for something in particular and didn't find what I really wanted. That's not to say I didn't buy anything though!

Then this morning I went to a conference in Newton, which is near Boston, about an hour from where I live. I don't usually get that far away from home by myself, so on my way home I decided to stop at a Joann Fabrics that is kind of between here and there to see if I could have better success with a better selection of fabric. I think I like what I found for my intended purpose.

Fabric Shopping LootThe reds on the left were my loot from Joann's and the bright primaries on the right were from Walmart. In the middle you can see a pattern that I received as part of my Pay It Forward gift from Lyn in Australia. She knew I had been searching for a way to organize my knitting needles and crochet hooks.

So I have a sewing project in my future! I am going to use the primaries first and work up a practical solution to my crochet hook mess. If it turns out well, I will make another with the reds for an upcoming birthday gift.

I also purchased one other piece of fabric which I will show you tomorrow. It's for one of my favorite patterns to make for gifts, and for myself!

Happy Stitching!
