K80, lil S, and I went back down on Friday to get some swatches of colors we liked that I could take to India and found the store having a 30-60% off sale! They are consolidating to one floor (sad) but we SCORED! I snapped some pix and then we went to Panera to partake of their Free WIFI and some yummy eats so that we could chat with McKay and N8 and show the finds. We were all in agreement and went back and to buy.
We are on a SERIOUS budget but came out with some incredible deals and fabrics that fit right into our color palette; it is amazing how well they fit in! Textures, Stripes, Florals, Geometrics, Velvets, Cottons, and Silks! Blog Reader, Rachel H, gave some excellent advise about looking for fabrics and was spot on. It is easier to find the fabric and fit the palette around it but we were lucky enough to find affordable fabrics in our palette. She has done some awesome work with fabrics herself!
Lil S was so patient with us in a big fabric store with so many little nooks to hide in and rolls of fabric to climb. Luckily by the time we went back to buy she was out and we balanced her on the fabric while we lugged the heavy bolts of fabric to the front. Just another example of how the kids are coping with this project that their crazy family is working on! But the stories and pictures will be priceless.
