A) live an hour away
B) have a full-time job
C) had two sick kids and a sick husband for two of those weeks.
So, today was the big Nana-visit. I brought the boys and the dog, and of course Tony. While Tony and Dillon went out to the music store to buy some parts for Nana's organ; she dragged me upstairs to her fabric stash. Ashton watched the dog who watched the cat who was watching the dog...see photo below:
Holy cow! She has yards and yards of fabric that she had "big plans for" that never went through. Here are just a few things I scored:
1 1/8 yd of this lovely red wool. When I was about six (24 years ago), Nana purchased this fabric with the pure intent of making me a "Little Red Riding Hood" Cape. Today she resignedly handed it over to me, so I could do something with it for myself, as an adult. It is VERY tempting to make myself a cape, since there is that new movie coming out and all....Hmmm...but are there TOO many moth holes in it?? (Just a couple little ones).
And lastly, some tapestry, etc. I can make handbags that she planned on making, but never got around to. I can't wait to get some of these fabrics into projects and post them...but I need to put the brakes on my mind so I can slow it down to a functional speed...And I do have homework due by Tuesday, so I might have to do that first.
So, at the end of the day (well, about three hours later), we were all tuckered out and headed on home. I had a huge stack of new fabric to play with...and the kids and dog were exhausted!
