Waiting until Monday won’t be easy

I adore hand-dyed fabrics, so much so that I’ve even been dyeing my own fabrics this summer (blog posts to come soon!!). When I heard that Melissa was selling what was left from her fabric dyeing business, I couldn’t believe it. She had indicated she was looking for someone local to purchase the lot. I really didn’t think I had a chance, as we live 8 hours apart. Turns out I did.

Melissa boxed up the fabric and took it to the post office to get a quote. We settled on a price and these lovely fabrics will be making their way to me tomorrow. There’s a slim chance they’ll arrive on Friday, but Monday is more likely. Even though I paid for them, it sure does feel like I won the lottery!
