WTH is up with Fabric.com???
I have been a really good girl in the fabric buying department...using what I have in the stash and not ordering on line, even deleting the sale emails from all my favorites without reading because I know I am weak. Last week I couldn't take it and convinced myself it was my patriotic duty to stimulate the economy so I placed a small order at Fabric.com. I needed some grey to go with an argyle double knit in the stash. I am not bold enough to cover my body entirely in argyle...I need a little something solid to break it up. I ordered some beads to make some jewelry and some other yardage. Here's my grey poorboy knit:So I emailed them and yes, they did apologize and are sending me the grey, thank you very much. I start looking at the other pieces and my silk charmeuse is in 2 pieces! WTH!!! So I complain about that. I knew I was not getting the full 2 yards as I had gotten an email saying they did not have the full 2 yards. What I did not understand (and to be fair, upon review it could be my interpretation of the email) is that the fabric was coming in 2 pieces. I'm sure I can do something with it and perhaps I am just being a cranky *itch. I'm just saying the communication could have been more clear, like "hey dummy, we only have remnants left...you want 'em?" That I get. I sure hope this is not a reflection of the Amazon merger because I was really hoping that would be a good thing! Okay, enough rant about Fabric.com. I don't need to swim in negative feelings. On a positive note, Julia asked for some pictures of the dresses on me, so I had Tom take my picture when I got home from work last night. Please excuse the tired glazed over look. With the sweater and without. And here is the Tippi Hedron dress. Wow, I really need to take the pictures earlier in the day. Not looking as perky and cute as I usually do...I'm such a comedienne! I will leave you with a picture of Jo...pure cuteness any hour of the day!
