New Fabric

Just as I was composing a post in my head all about using up scrap fabric and stash reduction, I found myself at Crafty Planet and picked up a yard of this.  Erin McMorris' line for Free Spirit called Weekends.  This is the "Go By Bike" print that I immediately fell in love with.  I seldom pick up a yard of new fabric the way I used to since we are trying to be tight with money these days.  But Crafty Planet is a dangerous place to be with a tenner burning a hole in your pocket.  Luckily I had just gotten a 15% off coupon, so I felt that justified the purchase.  :-D 

So.... next post will be about using up existing fabric!
