I just went in for thread (uh-huh, sure...) but I had to *browse* didn't I? They have a wonderful variety of off-the-beaten path material. In the little town where I live, we have Beverly Crafts and Fabrics, a chainstore, Wallll-mart (bleech) and one small LQS that caters to a certain clientele. Sew n Sew seems to cover more genres of fabric. I was busily eyeing the new Japanese fabric, next to the new shipment of Judi Rothermels when Frank came and got me. "You've got to see these..." He took me to the non-quilting fabric section and wanted me to touch this exquisitely soft, plush yummy. Ohhh... it was nice! Yup, it was minky, in all these fun colors.
Next thing I know Frank's asking the clerk at the counter if those panels are for sale and how does one go about getting one anyway? We mutually agreed it would be fun to have one as a wallhanging to commemorate our 28th year. I thought later, if we couldn't travel abroad for our anniversary, at least we could go there together in our mind.
Thanx for the memories drhrt. It's great to see life through someone else's eyes once in awhile, as well as the LQS!
