Nothing in and nothing out this week. I went out in the pouring rain to buy fabric for a flannel nightshirt but decided to wait.
Last year I asked for a flannel nightgown for Christmas, and the guys went to a half-dozen stores and couldn’t find one. Do they not make them anymore? I’m a big fan of natural fiber and can’t believe how hard it is to find 100% cotton anything, especially jeans. I now buy all my jeans at Goodwill where I easily find cotton and pay a small fraction of the price I’d pay anywhere else.
I hadn’t made the connection between the increasing prices at the quilt shops and the increasing prices of all other fabrics. A little slow here, but I get it now.
I checked out a rug-making book from the library in a quest to bust massive amounts of fabric before the end of the year. The book wasn’t quite what I expected, but the more I think about it the more I think I can adapt some of the patterns to work with the fabric I have and streamline the process to cut down the time.
I’ll let those ideas bounce around in my head for a day or so and get back to you.
