Hard Economic Times, Joel Dewberry, Dolly Dresses & Dumpster Diving

Economics suck. Unemployment and layoffs are equally sucky. Mr. Coffee has been without work since November ’09. My fabric stash is dwindling––except for the wool I use to keep Kongko lovers in hats {although I am sure cyclists would be lovin’ some Spring stylin’ on their heads}. I am coveting all things Joel Dewberry. I love his Modern Meadow collection. Especially the Sunny Day… it has O R A N G E ! OOO…look how pretty it blends with my blog! At least it does on my Mac.

Don’t even get me started on the Dolly Dresses line from Lakehouse Dry Goods… so kAyOOOT.

“Hi. I’m Robyn and I’ve become a free fabric HO”. I search for fabric giveaways. I read the local FreeCycle list. I stand along the freeway ramps with my “Need Fabric” sign. Ok. I don’t. Am I suffering from Dwindling Stash Disorder Syndrome…the dreaded DSDS? GASP! Get the paddles. “CLEAR!”
Yeah, I’m whining. I’ll be fine.
B U T… isn’t my I-Rescued-This-From-The-Neighbor’s-Trash {score!} Chair just screaming for a cushion made from some fresh fabric?

Oh…Happy St. Patricks Day to all! This Hungarian descendant is cooking corned beef & cabbage
