About five years ago I got my hands on some velvet curtains, cushions, and sample material from a store that was going to get a "face lift' . My heart skipped a beat at the sight of all that free fabric ( even though I had no idea what I would do with it ). Over the years the excitement of this acquisition wore off. It ended up in a trunk under the stairs.
Handling this 'treasure' was more challenging than I thought. The fabric was stretchy , uneven, of different thickness and it frayed a lot. It was frustrating and I was angry at myself for being so impulsive and taking it without thinking. Not to mention the valuable storage space this lump was taking up - You know that space that other fabric could be using........
The thought of throwing it out crossed my mind and on a few occasions I even pulled it out of the trunk - only to put it back in for another few years. Like everything in life the right time came for it.
Just to think that I almost threw the fabric away. (on more than one occasion! ) -Nonie
