My obsession with Joann's has finally gotten me in trouble - big trouble. But how can I resist the many 50% off coupons that arrive through my snail mail and virtually right here on this computer? And I am allowed to use them at the same time. What store do you know of that lets you do that? And rarely is there a week where a Joann coupon does not exist. I refuse to buy anything there full price - I don't think I have bought anything there full price. Truly. If I don't have a coupon I find that they have amazing sales anyway and half their stuff is 40-50% off. Like this weekend. I found that the clearance section was an additional 50% off. Also, ALL special order fabric was 50% off. How can you beat that? That is why I am in over my head, way over my head.
I bought a lot of fabric. And a book. But I needed to buy the book because I bought a lot of fabric.
It is a sick cycle.
Well all this fabric, except for the Waverly paisley, was bought from the clearance section for next to nothing. I am planning on making pillows out of it all. Cute, stylish pillows to spruce up the space and add some color. That is not my problem though. I bought the zippers and I am ready for those. The Waverly paisley doesn't worry me either. I am already replacing our bathroom window treatment. This is way more fun.
No, what totally worries me and makes me almost pee my pants in fear is the light blue/green velvet fabric. Yes, the fabric that I bought for $6 a yard (originally $24) so that I can make a new slipcover for our large, awkward armchair in the living room. Yes this one, the one that Lola loves and is white.
Black Dog + White Chair = Disaster
Yes, thats the chair.
Well, this is what it looks like now.....
It is going really well so far.
And that book I bought for $10 at 50% off - it is of NO help. None. So I am on my own - with the fabric already cut in sections.
