I can tell you exactly how many Hobby Lobby stores are in a 50 mile radius of my house. (There are 13.) The people there are all very nice. How do I know? Because I called each of them yesterday on a mad hunt for the buffalo check fabric I posted about the other day. And guess what?
I am now the proud owner of 11 yards of buffalo checks! I officially needed 12 yards, but am hopeful I can make it work. I also have my mom on the hunt in Ohio, so maybe she will get lucky. The best part? Hello, clearance sale! $7 a yard, my friends, marked down from $24.99! No wonder this stuff was hard to find!
Now my next step (and I say this with a huge intake of breath and lots of trepidation) is to call my local sewing machine store and actually schedule a lesson so that I can make these curtains. Don't laugh, I am serious! OK, you can laugh a little. It is kind of bizarre to imagine me behind a sewing machine, no glue gun in sight.
Thank you to all of you who made helpful suggestions and even offered to check your local stores for me. Talk about nice! And now I am off to...wait for it...read my sewing machine instructions. Seriously, don't laugh!
