I didn't actually find Lilly Pulitzer yardage, but I found 4 pieces of clothing at a garage sale. They wanted $20 but all I had was $17.00. They didn't want to go down, but I guess they knew I would love it more than anyone else and finally gave it to me. I win!
I bought them thinking I would cut them up and make a small doll quilt for my niece for Christmas, but now I can't bring myself to cut. I want it all to myself. Like the Seagulls in "Finding Nemo" ...mine mine mine mine MINE!!!
I always buy thrifted clothing, especially vintage clothing, thinking I'm going to use it for fabric, then end up wearing it instead. The good thing (or sad thing) about the 4 pieces of clothing is they are size 4 and 6 and....um....that's not my size. Shux! (Who is a size 4 anyway!?!? Grrrrrr). So off they go to my Lilly Hoard Box, waiting for the mood to strike.
