My enviable Fabric situation, and My own little Dork Fish

So, you want to know why my fabric situation is enviable? Well, here's the reason.

$5 a yard fabric. Yep, $5.
And this? This is a local shop, that's $1 a yard. Not. Kidding.

The beauty of this shop? It's all on rolls, big huge heavy rolls, and 2/3 of the fabric here is Robert Kaufman! Now, only anbout 1/4 of their stuff is quilter cotton, but digging through the rolls can provide some real finds.

Okay. Now for the Dork Fish part of our day. Ahem. This is not for the squimish. Well, it's not horrible, but it ain't pretty, either!




Just look at it.

See, this is what happens when you stop yourself with your face! He was less than impressed.
