So, at my house when socks and things go missing, we say that the Underpants Gnome took them. This was my late husband Derrick’s version of comedy that stuck. Gosh I miss him. He was hilarious. So, we don’t have the Sock Fairy stealing socks, but the Underpants Gnome. Let me tell you, he is hungry because I have an enormous bag of un-mated socks and underwear with holes (They couldn’t be because they are 10 years old).
So, when I felt slightly guilty about the Fabric package in the mail, I decided that I would blame the Fabric Gnome. I like him way better than the underpants Gnome. He left me this fabulous pile of batiks from Hancock’s of Paducah.
So, the folded pile is a sample pack. There are 40 pieces at least 14×18 (most nearly fat quarters). It was $19.99. Holy Cow. They are very lovely and luxurious. There a few duplicates, but I won’t complain. Such a steal. I am having a difficult time not going and buying more, especially since they sent me a 15% off coupon after that order. The other pieces are one yards that were $3.99.
Odd thing, I love batiks, but have only made a couple of small baby quilts. I got these with the plan of making myself a quilt. How weird is that? I already have a jelly Roll and was looking for a few others. This will be perfect.
Beware of the Underpants Gnome
