On fabric hoarding....

Textile Fabrics is currently having their annual Summer sale, and as with every sale they have, I like to go and stock up on amazing fabrics which I will not have a use for....for quite, quite some time...I just can't help myself...I...am...a...fabric...hoarder! As you can witness in the photo above!!

I happen by Textile every few months, but I can't make it too often because I become overwhelmed and fabric greedy and start going crazier than my wallet can afford.  I stopped in their store at the end of May, and after browsing for an hour, I approached their cutting table with a large stack of $25/yd fabrics in hand.  The very nice lady behind the counter asked if I was on their mailing list (I am) which kind of tipped me off that perhaps I should ask the question of the date of their next sale...it just so happened to be the following weekend!  So, I put all of my lovely fabric back on the shelves and prayed that they would all still available on Saturday.

The fabric that I was most jonesin' to buy was the one seen above, Viewfinders by Ruby Star Rising...doesn't it just kill you!?  Gah...I love it...like want-to-marry-it, love it.  I'm hoping to make an A-line skirt with it, because lord knows I don't need another tote bag or pillow around my house.  The weight is a heavy weight cotton/linen, surely I can make something wonderful out of it!

Now that I'm looking for it online, I see that I purchased the wrong color of that which I intended to buy...but I will live....I guess. The fabric below is what I went in search of, they must have been out of it or perhaps, my head was too swirlie from the colorful fabric goodness at 50% off, for me to notice the difference in store.
I found some really cute finished projects made using Viewfinders on Melody's blog, such as this DIY fabric covered mat:

The other fabric that I would have purchased, had I not been encountering swirlie-head fever, is her Transistors fabric as seen below...kinda kicking myself now...those color combos make me weak in the knees...but what would I actually use this fabric for?  A pillow? haha

Check out Melody's other fabrics online or at the Textile Fabrics sale, which they have 50% off all fabrics with a minimum purchase of 1 yard and 75% off all remnants in the back room.  And as if that wasn't enough, they added ribbons and trims to the 50% off sale just today...you know, exactly what I needed...something else to lure me into that store! The sale ends Saturday, July 2nd and Textile is located at 2717 Franklin Pike, Nashville Tn 37204.
