    So, the other day I was in Joann's WITHOUT my daughter and I was in heaven. I had an armful of fabric bolts and was happily checking out more. I was in the bargain aisle and I knelt down to check out a bolt that caught my eye. Then I heard..."RRRRRRRIIIIPPPPP!"
    I just stayed down, reached back and felt for the damage. Oh....My. My jeans had just ripped out. I don't mean a little hole...I mean "bottom-hanging-out" ripped out! I sat there for a minute and contemplated..........then got up, pulled my jacket down and made my way to the cutting table! No way was I leaving without my fabric!!
    On the bright side....I HAVE been collecting jeans for a denim rag quilt for years. Usually it is my Hubsters jeans. Now it will feature one of my casualty's too!!
    :)
    Have a fantastic day everyone!! :)

    That would be so embarrassing, but glad you stuck it out and got your fabric.

    That would be my luck too! Hey, a sale is a sale and you just can't let a rip stop you from shopping! LOL

    The moral to that story is - always wear a sweater or jacket that you can take off and tie around your waist to cover your butt............
