Fabric Crazy

So ... I went a little fabric crazy last week. I had gotten an order of wonderful aprons in fabrics designed by Tanya Whelan. I thought I'd spend a few minutes on line locating some of the fabric for myself. WELL ... it was ALL so gorgeous I ended up ordering all of these beautiful prints from two different websites. They happened to arrive on the same day. I put the two piles together and here they still sit, on my counter. They are so pretty to look at that I can't bring myself to put them away nevermind cut them up to make pillows!! Oh what to do?

Now for my next confession ... after what was supposed to be a few minutes one day that turned into hours over several days ... I had a great time searching Tanya Whelan's lines of all of the fabrics she has designed. I have now set up an account to order the bolts wholesale. I have looked and looked at all of the patterns and I think I have it narrowed down to 11 or 12 prints I am going to order. I guess once they arrive I will have to make myself actually use them and maybe even offer the fabrics for sale. Only time will tell!!

Thanks for visiting ...

Tanya Whalen is one of my favorites. I could look at fabric swatches forever!

Sometimes I even have a hard time cutting a piece. I know it's crazy but true.
