OH NO!

I went to the quilt shop yesterday at lunch just to look around and take a break from the BS that is work. Anyhow, I found some new fabric and pulled it out to look at the label. $11.49/yd. I literally shook my head and looked again thinking my eyes were playing tricks on me. OH NO! What am I going to do? Eat or make quilts, cloth my child or make quilts? I guess I could cloth my child in a quilt. I was starting to feel like a hoarder before when it came to scraps. I know the sight of $11.49/yard is going to send me over the edge and cause damage to my already damaged brain. I know I read the prices were going up. That's INSANE.

Wow,over $11. It is certainly time for me to know exactly how much fabric I'll need rather than guestimate.

I was in a shop a couple of weeks ago, intending to buy lots of fabric to make a specific quilt. $11.99 a yard! Yikes! I think we'll all be on fabric diets!

A price like that is what we here in Victoria, BC consider a half price sale. We pay anywhere from $16.99 to $21.99 for a meter of quilting cotton so that is why we like to shop in the States.

Wow, better use of the stash. Hope I don't have to find another hobby!
