confessions of a thrifter

I'm not supposed to be buying any new fabric till I've used up what I've got.

When I do start buying again, I'll only buy with a particular project in mind.


They were my *fabric guidelines* until I saw this



It screamed BUY ME....actually, it wasn't even for sale - it was part of a display in a thrift store - so I asked the lady if I could buy it! It's a huge piece and she gave it to me for $2, so at least it was a bargain;-)

And I don't know what I'm going to do with it. Any ideas?



Then seeing as I'd already broken both my self-imposed rules, I brought this home too.....both rules broken again!


There were two lengths of it attached to a wooden ring????????? I've chopped one off and put it up on the wall - you'll have to wait til tomorrow to see that one. What should I do with the other? Isn't it gorgeous!

i didn't read it properly.
i was talking about the other material, the one you asked about, rach.

Oh, yeah that other stuff would mke very funky oilily style tiered skirts...perfect for T and E-R.

With the tapestry I would either cut it into squares and make it into a mini wall hanging quilt or otherwise each pic would make a cool pincushion...gifties for xmas/birthdays????
