I knew they wouldn’t have our Ace blanket, but they did have a huge selection of throws and blankets in traditional patterns. They did have my favorite pattern (Glacier Park), but I don’t have an immediate need for it. Who says I can’t practice discretion??
The real reason we came to this store was for the fabric. They sell Pendleton fabrics by the yard. I know wool isn’t exactly Texas Summer fabric, but I’ve got some ideas.
So we got a ton of red and gray buffalo check wool along with some plain black wool. It was in the remnants bin for $5 per pound. We bought 9 pounds. One of the red pieces is sewn on all sides and could be a throw without any sewing.
Here’s a close up, so you can see the texture. We also got a yard of gray wool. It was originally $54 per yard, but was 20% off. Luckily we bought a duffel bag at Ace and stuffed it full of fabric. We spent $88 total, and I seriously need to get on making pillows or something. Wool is definitely a winter fabric since it’s heavy and warm, but I don’t know if I will be able to wait that long to make something out of this.
PS. A big happy birthday to Nick! He turns the big 2-7 today!
