Impulse Shopping

I am very tired and strung out these days.
Luckily, my sister bought me a gift certificate for my birthday for Hawthorne Threads, yay!
So look what I bought today!

Robert Kaufman House Designer - Cozy Cotton Flannel - Typewriter Text in Grey

Patty Young - Just My Type - Type Keys in Gray
Patty Young - Just My Type - Letterpress in Gray
Yes, all grey. They called out to me in monochromatic unison.
They said "Add ME to your stash! Add ME!"
So I did.

That's the kind of gal I am. Always ready to rescue a lone piece of grey, texty fabric.

PS I found them here: type, keys and large type.

I love the typewriter keys! What a fun print. :)

I'm sending you a virtual strong coffee and some caramel slice to assist with the tiredness :-) I'm sure the shopping helped though. I'm pretty sure fabric shopping cures everything except a shopping addiction. It's all good.

sorry you are feeling so worn out. Hope you can take a bit of time out soon and enjoy some quiet sewing. Those new grey fabrics are wonderful :-)

It's so nice of you to rescue those fabrics - they'll be right at home with you! Hope you feel better soon, sending a big hug xxx

Hope both you and your father are feeling better soon. Those wonderful grey text-y prints should cheer you a bit! What a nice sister gift.

I love that fabric talks to you too. We have that in common...been thinking a lot about you lately.
