Fabric and Fabric and Fabric

My good friend Bonnie has a friend with a furniture import and customizing shop. He invited us down to select rolls and rolls of his $100-per-yard decorator fabric; stuff ready to be tossed into the dumpster. As much as we wanted! The friend even tossed in a large box of leather scraps for us.

Our first priority was selecting fabrics suitable for art classes, and then all the activities involved in children's ministries at church. We found perfect stripey fabrics for Bible time costumes and solid earthy tones for backdrops and banners. Lastly, we chose our personal favorites for home decorating. Mine are all greens:
I came home with five different designs totaling over 13 yards of 54" and 60" wide designer fabrics. What fun I'll have in the months to come! (These really are all green, not golds and khaki. Trust me.)

Man, oh man! That was a wonderful deal. Why was he going to toss it all?

I'm not sure why he was going to toss it all. Perhaps because he didn't know what else to do with it, until a local high school drama teacher heard he had it. Then he started thinking of others who might be able to use it, such as Bonnie the art teacher.
