Saw this on Facebook and thought it was funny!
While on vacation I went to the fabric store that I consider “heaven”. Fabrics stacked 2 stories high and a floor space as big as a football field! SR Harris Fabric is so big and the prices are fabulous! It is also in the middle of an industrial area so poor Mr Victorian-Not had to sit in the car with some reading material while I wandered around in awe-struck wonder.
Buckets of them.
Waist high BARRELS OF THEM.
There happened to be two teenaged girls there. Know what they did? They sunk their hands into that barrel…up to the arm pits. God, I regretted being a semi dignified 50 year old because I had been wanting to do that very thing.
I looked at the silk but didn’t go for it. I bought my Silky Skies dress fabric there and after having it fade so easily, I wasn’t sure I wanted to go for silk again. So I went for a sensible cotton in a fabulous dark purple and a purple flower print that will go nicely with it. I’ve been craving a dark purple for some time. I also bought some lace appliques and buttons as well. I don’t know what it will become. I’ll let it stew in my mind for a while. See what ideas I come up with.
