After all the holiday gifts were done and given away, it was time for a FART (Fabric Acquisition Road Trip).   Karen, owner of Fabric Smart, announced she was having a  a sale and who can resist that!  Me and three fellow quilters decided this would be a perfect way to end 2017, so we hit the road.

Driving to meet the ladies, I received a text from my husband.  I never use my phone while I drive so once I got to the meeting spot, I checked it out.  Here’s what he had to say:

“I went into your closet and I was shocked – totally shocked – at the small amount of fabric you seem to have.  It is your duty to maintain a certain stock of fabric so you can continue to make those wonderful things you make.  Therefore, I command you to spend like there’s no tomorrow.”

Then he sent a follow-up text:  “Sarcasm.  It’s one of my many talents”.

Back to Karen’s shop ( I ignored this funny man)…  The sale was great, the drive with all four women talking over each other was perfect, and lunch was yummy!  I can’t think of a better way to end the year.   I wish the same for each of you.  And thank you Karen for treating us well.  click here
