During my trip out to Sisters I *might* have spent a little bit of $$ on fabric. One of the first fabric stores we stopped at I saw this fabric line, <i>Collections for a Cause - Hope by Howard Marcus for Moda</i>. I can't remember ever seeing a fabric line that screamed my Mother quite so much. I thought I'd pick up at least a charm pack to make her something small like a table runner with a little extra to finish up the project. I tried to wing the pattern design in my head and so far managed to buy just the right amount of everything. I might even have enough left over to make her a tote bag with the scraps.
I'm enjoying working with fabric that's a bit out of my norm. Also I showed the fabric to my Mom and predictably, she LURVED it.
