Quilters' Porn. Shouldn't it arrive in a brown paper wrapper?
One thing I like about Hancock's of Paducah is that they carry so many crazy, cutting edge fabrics, many of which are outside my comfort zone. But it kind of makes me wonder. And think. And imagine. And fantasize. Yep, a lot like porn!
I think someone at FedEx reads my blog, because I came home to find that box containing the scallop ruler and book on my front porch. Why does it take FedEx two days to move a package across the country and then four days to move it across the city to my door? It's a mystery, but I'm delighted it arrived!
And when I came home to find that box on my porch, what do you think I was carrying? This nice little bag--
And look what was in it--
Don't they do a great job of wrapping purchases at Bear Paws and Hollyhocks? It looks like a gift! And I guess it is, sort of!
More yellow polka dot fabric for the cherry quilt border--in fact, I bought all that was left on the bolt! And I found this black and white stripe too--maybe it will find its way into the outer border? Another mystery at this point! But I DO think that these fabrics I purchased today and some other recent purchases will end up either in the quilt, in pillowcases, in throw pillows, or covering the panels I put up on the wall in place of a headboard in my bedroom. Lots of wondering, thinking, imagining, and fantasizing going on here! What's that statistic about how often men think about sex? I wonder if anyone's done a study to see if quilters think quilt-related thoughts even more often throughout the day?
