But I'm not really all that upset about it. LOL!
I went to the LQS this afternoon looking for bluebonnet fabric for Cynthia's siggy swap. I wanted something that would represent the area I live in and couldn't think of anything more appropriate than bluebonnets. And I also needed a nice white to use for the signature part as I'm all out of good white muslin. I found these pretty bluebonnets and a solid white moda. Then I couldn't decide what to use for the accent fabric in the block. I finally settled on this yellow (it's really more a sunshine yellow that shows in the photo). I think it sets off the blues and greens in the other print very well. Since these are for a swap I'm letting them slide on my "no fabric" challenge so this isn't where I went bad.
THIS is where I went bad. When I was wandering around looking for the bluebonnets this pretty pink print just jumped of the shelf into my arms. I told myself I'd just carry it around and pet it while I was there and then put it back when I left. Yeah, maybe in some twisted alternate reality world! In this world I found myself actively looking for go-withs. LOL! As you can see I caved and have now added 10 YARDS to my stash!!!!!!! And fabric that I have no idea what I'm going to do with at that. SIGH!!!! The one in the back on the left is a dark green and the one in the back on the right is a rich deep blue. The colors didn't show up very good in the photo but take my word for it, they look luscious!
Now to find a pattern to use them in right away so they don't sit in my stash. AND I can't forget the 30 yd penalty I have to pay for buying fabric without a specific-right-now-need. I'm allowing myself 1 month to use penalty yards so I guess I'd better get cracking if I want to use that 30 yds myself instead of giving it away! And I think it would be best if I stayed FAR away from the LQS for a little while. Don't you?
