First, let me tell you a story…
This post comes after a day of consoling my oldest son about the, rather abrupt and shocking, death of a pet. Don’t be alarmed. It was not a well loved dog or cat, but Herman, the hermit crab who’d just come home with us on Sunday. Not only did he climb OUT of his shell, he also (because he was really small) climbed OUT between the bars of the cage and somehow got over to the middle of the hallway were he was….squished.
I shit you not.
My husband and I exchanged a lot of incredulous looks about the odds of something like this happening and worried looks about our kids’ reactions to this really bizarre event. But with a promise to replace him (and an additional promise to let my son keep his empty shell AWWWW) they were OK. So, we took a rainy walk to the pet store after school and brought home a new crabby friend.
NOW, you wanna know about that Mood (MOOOOOOOD) fabric, amirite??!?
Silk/Cotton!! With deer!! Are you dying?! Lie to me if you aren’t.
The print is super sheer, look how my hand shows up below it.
This next one shows it layered with the striped one, which is how I plan to use them. It’s also silk/cotton, which will make whatever project they become the most expensive one I’ve ever made.
Let’s talk about this Cotton/Lycra blend, shall we. Isn’t it fucking awesome!! I can’t decide which side I like best.
It absolutely BEGS to be made into something that utilizes both sides. Something with a princess seamed bodice, yes? It needs to be fabulous so I’ll stop feeling bad about the beautiful Mood employee who nearly threw her back out wrestling the bolt off of the rack.
I didn’t do nearly, not even CLOSE to, the damage that some other meet-up members did. But for my first time shopping with the big dogs, I think I did OK, lol
