Do I really need this fabric? I can usually find a reason. I hadn't checked the weather before I went to Quilters Take Manhattan on Saturday. When I came out of Penn Station, I was hit with a brisk breeze and wearing my too summery outfit. First impulse...go to City Quilter and get something to wrap around me. Well, this fabric just "said party"....and it was half price! So when I was seated at the event, I whipped out my yardage and covered my shoulders, ignoring the titters from the folks behind me. Yes, I could have bought a shawl off one of the many street vendors, but my Dots 'n Roses is going to appear next on the back of my Color Challenge quilt!
Does anyone have a favorite excuse to share?
