A Little Bit of Carefully Considered Shopping

I bought fabric this week. Craft Warehouse was having a truckload sale and I was able to find the medium pink I need for a baby quilt tutorial I've got planned...actually two different choices for the pink. The one I don't use for the front may wind up as the back. I also found the perfect blue for another quilt, if there's enough of it.  I've got my fingers tightly crossed, but I'm pretty sure I'm deluding myself. I was sure there was a little over a yard. At the cutting counter, it measured as 3/4 yard. By my ruler at home, it measures thirty inches.

Oh, and there's sock yarn. I've finished a dozen socks so far this year, all from stash. So I don't feel at all guilty about picking up a color way that I've been drawn to for months, in a brand that I know I love knitting with. (it also doesn't hurt that I had coupons!)

I love the yarn color. Those will be some great sock! I hope you have enough fabric for your project. It looks like you are going to be busy!

I try to use what I have for my little projects but it sure is nice to find what you need during a big sale! You did good!

They look like good purchases to me! Hard to use fabric without buying some. Have a great week.
