The best thing ever happened: I finally made it to Home Fabrics before they closed for the night.
However, I had just 30 minutes of shopping time and therefore ran from bolt to bolt looking for that certain something for my Handsome Chair. I'm pretty sure I rearranged half the store before I left. I kept picking up a bolt of fabric I'd decided on and then leaving it next to another bolt that was seemingly better. And then back to the first. And then another. I finally settled on a blue and white chevron weave for $6.99 a yard!! Can you believe it??
Okay so I realize that not everyone is as nuts about fabric as I am, but seriously, let me just tell you that a similar fabric at Jo-Ann's would've cost me AT LEAST $19.99 a yard. Can you imagine my gleeful excitement? It was pretty intense. I also picked up a staple gun (finally) and returned home, a grinning wife.
Kyle was happy for me, but I could tell he didn't fully appreciate the good fortune of my fabric find. When I asked him (for the third time) if he liked it he explained, "It's good. I mean, fabric is either crappy or good, and it is good."
So... he likes it?
I decided to forego fixing dinner and changing out of my work clothes for some work on the Handsome Chair. I recovered the seat and called it a night. I then had nightmares of running out of fabric and having to piece mismatching fabrics together to finish the chair.
I think I have a problem.
