When in Norfolk the other week, I saw a gorgeous fabric shop, and through the window I could see a huge bolt of this:
As it was a Bank Holiday, the shop was shut. My lovely MIL offered to go pick some up for me as she was staying in the area for a few more days.
Now here's the point where I made a stupid mistake. I thought it would look good for the backing of H's quilt, so I looked up the size required in the pattern, made an adding mistake and asked for 5 yards, without even thinking about what that would actually look like. (I was only 1/2 yard out) I didn't thinking about price either - it came in at over £60!!!!
Now, I'm not blaming the shop or my MIL, but that's not cheap and I don't know whether I should use it as the backing, sell it or save and use it sparingly? Ideas gratefully received!
PS - this post title reminds me of my favourite joke: Why did God only make one Yogi Bear? Because when He tried to make another, He made a Boo-Boo.
