Little Surprises

Love getting double cherries.  It's a little thing but it doesn't happen often so it makes me smile.  And it's a "good" surprise.

A not so good surprise is getting shorted fabric!  I bought some yardage at Joann's for the bridesmaid bags I worked on earlier.  The last piece I bought to finish the bags, got washed, like I do with all my fabric.  (Yes, I'm one of THOSE!)  lol  And this is what I got when I went to cut it.  About 3 1/2" off.....on both sides!!!!  So about 7" of fabric that I paid for and can't use.  I asked the clerk when I went back there for some other supplies what their policy is.  She said to bring it in so they can look at it.  I don't like this kind of surprise.

I doubt my daughter's friends look at my blog but just to be sure, I won't post the bridesmaid gifts but wanted to say I'm glad that job is over with!!!!  But they're awfully cute.

This is the invite to my daughter's shower.  They went against my objection to have a Halloween shower, complete with costumes.  This mother has no control over her daughters!!  At least the decorating has been easy to gather up.  Kelley designed the invitation.  We tell her she should be a party planner but she said she can't give up her day job!  :o)

Hope to keep coming back to the blog but things are starting to get crazy!  I even got medication from the doctor to keep me from bride-mom-overload.  hehe  I am enjoying the ride though, that's for sure.

I'm not surprised to hear that, after washing, your fabric looked like that... not at all. If you wrap 2 layers (folded) fabric around and around a cardboard bolt... that kinda thing is going to happen. Doesn't happen when fabric is wound in a single layer around a round tube... but it's much harder to handle in shops on a tube. Hope you can find additional fabric...

ugh! when i used to work for a chain fabric store (which was purchased by Joann) we had a unwritten policy to make sure the yardage wasn't stretched out of alignment. yes, we cut lots of 2"-3" strips, especially during sales, but we had happy customers.

Hang in there Liz! The wedding will come together! It's so frustrating getting fabric like that!
