I Love Fabric Mart

Yesterday, I showed you my new SWAP.  I mentioned that I still needed three fabrics to complete the plans.  Well, Fabric Mart came through for me with not only the fabrics I needed, but at a 35% discount to boot.  Yee Haw!  I have updated yesterday's post to reflect the addition of the new fabrics. 

While I was buying the three fabrics I needed for SWAP, I may have also tossed in another three goodies and a mystery bundle.

Behold the bounty:

These three are the SWAP fabrics (silk crepe de chine, silk blend burnout print & silk animal print):




And, these three are the "just 'cause" fabrics (all three are RPL suitings):







And, that my friends is why I <3 Fabric Mart - like a great friend, they are always there for me when I need them.  Now, I just hope that none of the SWAP fabrics sell out before they get to my order.  If that happens, I may have to cut a bitch.  What?  Seems harsh?  It's fabric acquisition, people - there is no room for niceties when it comes to fabric acquisition.  Sheesh, I thought you'd know that by now.

LOL at your last paragraph! Don't get in the way of Shannon and her shopping cart! Seriously, I know what you mean about FM, they are killing me because I've stopped shopping...the ship sails in 21 days and I need to have vacay money! And I have loads of their other goodies in my fabric collection now. I'm sure that you will get your pieces their counters have gotten much better!

Lucky for me that none of those fabrics were in my shopping cart when I pressed the "purchase" botton at FM. I'd hate to have you mad at me for getting your swap fabric! LOL

I had to read the line "cut a bitch" three times before it sunk in. hilarious. Thanks for the laugh, and can't wait for your wardrobe pics/reviews/posts.

Definitely no niceties in fabric shopping! Hope you get all your pieces.

lol, at least I'm safe. I'm off fabrics (and sewing actually) for a while. :D Can't wait to see YOUR stuff though!

I love Fabric Mart too. I look up their 50% & 35% sales and end up spending about a million pounds which the customs man ALWAYS catches and charges me another million pounds in tax! Carol, they post to UK so maybe Aussie too. Lovely stash - relatively well planned.
