This, my friends, is how a new
obsession stash begins! One yard at a time.
I’m using the same rationale that I used for building a quilt fabric stash and a yarn stash . . I can’t buy it locally so I need to have enough on hand to keep me busy.
Vince was home when the mail came and he said “Here we go again . . more fabric!” I tried explaining that there are so many different kinds of fabric, that’s like saying “we have to buy groceries” when we’re out of toilet paper! I buy toilet paper at the grocery store (no, I don’t . . but some people do) but you could have a pantry full of cans of green beans and if you have no toilet paper . . you’re up a creek! I didn’t have any knit and I needed knit so . . I now have at least enough to keep me busy while I decide if I like making and wearing this type stuff. Some of the fabric I bought is to make leggings for Nicole and Addie.
As farther justification for the
obsession stash build up, our local J. C. Penney is on the list of chopped stores. I would have been very surprised if they had kept it open. I don’t go in much but the last time I was there, it looked pretty empty. That leave us with Walmart and a Beall’s store that I’ve never once been in. It’s a good thing I do not like to shop at real stores or I’d be one miserable shopper in this little town. To get a pair of tennis shoes or a pair of socks or any kind of lingerie . . it’s Walmart, Beall’s or drive 2 hours one way. Even though it doesn’t bother me, it is kinda sad for the area. There are people who would not move to a place that has almost zero shopping without having to drive 2 hours.
