I wish I had time to make another one of these. I have a pretty stripe that will be PERFECT!

Sorting, organizing, and blowing out fabric continues at casa twiddletails.

Pretty much everything in the store is on sale.
I'm also listing most, if not all, scraps on Etsy.
(I announce most Etsy listings and new markdowns on the Facebook page as soon as they happen.)
