Yesterday, my daughter Anna and I went to the local Borders Book store closing sale. We were in search of fun craft books that we would not normally buy but rather borrow from our public library. With the "everything must go" sale going on we figured these books would be more reasonably priced and besides that we had a gift card that needed using before the store went out of business. Material Obsession 2 book was the one that I just had to have. Just look at the picture of the rows of fabrics. I open to this picture fist and the book had me. This kind of image just makes my mind go crazy with ideas and inspiration. I can spend hours in a fabric store, my children can back me up on this one, just looking at all of the artistic design and bright colors.
Here is a picture of me taken back last January at a great little fabric store in Lawrence, Sarah's Fabrics. I could have spent hours there just browsing. There is just something about textiles that makes me want to touch them, imagine, and then ultimately create something from them. Now this is going to sound a little "cheese ball", but I think they speak to me. For real!!!
