I have been collecting "blog fodder."
I will share some of that now.
From a now defunct web based fabric shop Catfabrics.com:
The winners of the "You think you've bought a lot of fabric" contest. These are retail customers. The names have been omitted to protect the innocent.
1st place: $13,589.41
2nd place: $10,574.06
3rd place: $9,358.49
I used to love that shop - my bill never came close to any of these numbers (not even in aggregate.) See, it could be worse.
As you know, I recently went to Australia & would dearly love to return! As a quilter I want/need to make a quilt to commemorate my experience. I searched high & low to find a suitable pattern & found one that will do the trick (I am even going to "design" 1 or 3 more...) but in the mean time I found this BOM. Lovely, huh? Lucky for me, I do not need any more fabric, so a BOM is not justifiable... However, the designer sells the patterns here at Aussie Applique. Can you say TEMPTED! (She also has a seasonal series of cat patterns and a kangaroo/koala pattern and an Australian table runner....) The patterns "can" help me "use-up" my fabric stash...
Speaking of fabric stash, I got the "in the closet" shelves up yesterday - now to get the fabric in there!
I thought I had more fodder...
Does anyone else save tidbits from around the net so that they can share them later?
