I waited at the cutting counter with my chosen fabric. I was going to make a doll for my daughter and this fabric was going to be the doll’s adorable calico dress.
I put my fabric on the counter and asked for a half yard. As she cut it, she asked what I was making. I told her about the doll and the dress. Oh, it will be so cute.
Then I asked her, “Do you ever wonder how many of the people finish the projects they buy fabric for?”
She looked shocked.
I love walking around a fabric store. There are so many possibilities. I dream about the things I can make with all this color and texture. I imagine the love that will be infused in the gifts to my children.
And I do occasionally finish a project that I buy fabric for. I bought the fabric for the doll two years ago. Maybe this Christmas…
