You Don't Always Get What You Want

I'm hopeful that the quilt I'm going to make will feel like it is full of things I love. I think I've picked fabrics that will make me happy every time I see them.

I received some of my fabric yesterday. Instead of the city fabric I had ordered, I was sent this:

Timeless Treasures Mini-C7710 (pink)

Very funny, universe. Very funny.

Note: Yes, the seller is sending me the correct fabric. For the record, I don't hate this fabric. I might even use it in the quilt. It's just that the universe is yanking my chain by sending me fabric that shows the crafty tools I've had to work to accept as a good part of my life. "Oh, you're trying to be okay with being a crafty, sewing and knitting person in the same camp as the goose clothiers? Why don't we see how serious you are about this. Are you comfortable with fabric sporting sewing machines?"


  1. Uhm... I think I need some of that fabric to make knitting project bags out of. ;-)

    1. You're right. That's excellent project bag fabric.

  2. Well at least there's a bird on it! This post made me laugh. . . out loud of course!
