I've spent the day going through my fabric stash. Fabric Stash? Yes, I have a fabric stash, only it is not as vast as say my button, my beads or heavens, my yarn stash. But it is still considered a stash, regardless of size.
Perhaps you've noticed mention of this to the right, in my sidebar? Yes, I'm now on Twitter, and this will give you, my readers, another look into my world of crochet, coffee, and perhaps beyond. I am hoping it fills in the void between blog postings.
So what is the hunt for the perfect fabric all about? I'm wanting to create a bag liner for a crochet project -- the CGOA is opening registration for the summer conference tomorrow and I'm thinking I am going to want a crocheted bag to haul my goodies from the hotel to the convention center in (a short walk). I haven't found a perfect fabric match yet, so I'm going to Game Plan B and checking all the blouses I've recently earmarked for charity donation.
I did mange to find a website with great "how to" instructions for sewing a bag liner ... and for those that know me well, they know I'm not a sewer, so the clearer the instructions the better. There's a reason my sweet Mr. Dee calls my sewing machine an expensive winder as I use it mostly to wind bobbins of thread to crochet. To actually use it for sewing, well, won't that be a surprise to Mr. Dee? ((grins))
