And so what is she to do but call up myself and a couple of my aunts for a free fabric feeding frenzy? I'm actually pretty proud of myself, to avoid physically being pushed out onto the street by my own fabric stash, I kept the taking to a minimum and snagged nothing (well, almost nothing) that I wouldn't have bought for myself at the store. Sorta.
Anyway, one of my prizes was a HUGE bag of buttons... and I love collecting buttons. They're so small, so colorful, so unique, and you just never know when one will come in handy! I'm looking forward to sitting down with my new collection and sorting them into mason jars by color... I know, thats a little sad isn't it? Oh well...
