ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLACES: I absolutely adore the local fabric store from its selection of fabrics to sewing machines to the super friendly staff. I love wandering around and inspecting all the super cute fabric. How awesome are the fabric in the photo above? Perfect for a travel-themed quilt or quillow.
I immediately thought of my sister, Becky, who lives on a dairy farm when I spotted the dairy-themed fabric. If I was a millionaire I would have no problem spending it all at the store. Seriously. I could easily pick out a dozen bolts of fabric for so many different projects.
Of course, I have to closely inspect a beautiful pillowcase on display. Piping! Who knew piping could be added to a pillowcase? I absolutely love the added element, making the pillowcase look more polished and professional. I need to remember to experiment with piping next time around.
Ruffles! I never thought about a ruffled trim on a pillowcase! How cute is this ruffle on another pillowcase on display? The store inspires me every time I visit. Even if I’m too poor to spend a fortune, I still walk out with inspiration and whatever I can afford (usually something on clearance).
I like the idea of owning a super fancy sewing machine, but I couldn’t justify spending a ridiculous amount of money for it. If I made a living creating beautiful and amazing quilts and quillows then maybe — maybe — I would be OK with spending a fortune on a sewing machine.
How cute are the fabrics of foxes and zoo animals? Will someone please donate a million dollars to me so I can buy all the fabrics I’ve been keeping me eye on? I would spend the rest of my life sewing so many pretty things. OK, maybe not the rest of my life, but at least for a few years.
