Elizabeth brought a great hostess gift - wine and fabric. The fabric was beautiful, a gray, pink and black plaid, pictured here.
Unlike the wine, which didn't last long enough to have its pictuer taken, the fabric has been aging ever since. But this past weekend, I finally decided what it wanted to be, and I pulled it off the shelf. And there wasn't enough.
Normally, 2 yards is plenty for most projects. Because of the complexity of what I have in mind, I needed more like 4 yards. I knew where the fabric came from, and I tried there. No luck - sold out.
I mentioned to Elizabeth by email that I was looking for more of the fabric, and she said casuallly, "I have 2 pieces at home. I'll put them in the mail for you tomorrow."
She's getting a thank you in the form of something from my stash, and my gratitude for helping a fellow sewist out of a tight spot.
This is why I love this community.
