Going for the fabric.


Thrift shopping this week brought these two aqua and green pillow cases and a bright pink and green sheet to the inventory. The sheet is listed on my store butterflyplace.etsy.com and the pillow cases have been set aside until I decide what my imagination can do with them. Actually I'm not ready to part with them.


I'm beginning to enjoy green. The olive green sheet which is 100% cotton I'm going to use as backing for quilts I will be donating to local hospitals. The paisley fabric is home decor fabric with a few bad spots that I'll clean up and list on my store. The beautiful green, maroon and blue print fabric was a wonderful find. It is "Guaranteed Dutch Java Print" fabric. This was made in Holland and to my surprise is quite expensive. May list it, May not. Still undecided. It's about 2.5 yards long and I could make something. Okay one more thing to do.


Then there was the great fire department fabric. Once this is trimmed it will be listed. I don't find a lot of fabric for boys so this was considered a score. The orange and yellow pillow cases just happened to find their way to my cart and are already listed. The universe is telling me to keep on going and that the day is not too far off when I can do this full time. I am building a second store and I'm so excited and to think that this is so much fun. My addiction to fabric is earning a few dollars. Not rich and never want to be. Just having fun. See everyone next week.

I found your blog through Sir Thrift A Lot's linky party. Love all your vintage fabric. A fabric addiction is a good one to have.

Hi Pam,
Thanks for looking at my blog. I have loved fabric since I was seven years old and it never gets old. I wish I had half the fabric that I once had. The things I would do with it. I just can never say not to the vintage.
