Loss of control...

Most of this year I have been trying to keep my fabric purchases to a minimum. I didn't even buy any fabric when I was in the fabric paradise of New York... Today though...



I went a little crazy. I came home with 22 metres of fabric... I popped into a fabric shop in Buda which I rarely visit, just to see what they had (always a bad idea...). They had this cool comic type fabric so I bought the last of it. It's cream with a green print. My camera made the colours funny.



Then on the tram home I was looking out the window and saw a fabric shop having a closing down sale (!!!) so I jumped out to have a look. Crazy low prices for really nice fabric. So I kinda went a little overboard. They had really nice plain fabric which will be perfect for dresses so I bought what was left of the black (more than 13 metres... :S will be a lot of dresses....) and two metres of a very dark blue. And then I spotted a gorgeous blue striped silk remnant which I just could not resist. I'm thinking it will become a skirt.



When I got the receipt I remembered that I had bought fabric in that shop many years ago. Such a beautiful receipt - like from another era. Actually I guess it is old. It has a place to write the fillér on it which were the smallest Hungarian coins which went out of circulation in the 90s, well before I even moved here...



Then I went into a third store, again just to see what they had... It's a chain, the same as the first one I went into today and they had the same cartoon fabric IN DIFFERENT COLOURS!!! So I had to buy it in blue too... maybe I will make pants, maybe bags. Not sure yet.

They had just one metre left of this spotted fabric. This is what happens when I don't go shopping often enough - I miss out on all the great fabric! It would make such a nice jacket but I think I only have enough for a skirt... What do you think I should use it for?
