I took advantage of a very rare chance to run to the fabric store today. I wanted some white to work on a new pattern. Did I "need" it in this exact moment? No. I have a number of projects started, as always. But, I just wrapped up the next pattern for Here2There, and I've already prototyped the one that comes after that one. So I've been thinking about taking something I worked on last year and doing it again for the next pattern. Thinking that I'd change things up a bit, I had it in my head to work on white instead of black... something bright and happy and fun. Something crisp. I've been stewing for days about grabbing some white and setting up some pieces I can work on when out and about. I've found that working on the applique for my current "year quilt" has been perfect for odd moments in the car. So I took advantage of an unexpected moment, and went to get white.
Do you see white in that photo? Exactly.
I did get some. But I had a moment of doubt at the store, and then I fell in love with a green and decided I could go an entirely different direction and work on this fabulous green. And as sometimes happens at a fabric store, one decision led to another, and another, and a stack appeared.
As a backup, I also got black. Some things never change!
Feet seem to be summing things up these days.
