    very excited!

    Well I called an online fabric shop this morning that has the fabric that I have been looking for and ordered to see just how much they have. well they have the 4 yards I ordered and probably another 5 yards too. I am thinking about getting the last 5 yards because i really like the fabric and want to make sure i have enough of it. but it has actually shipped out. just got the email a bit ago about it shipping out.
    am i weird for being soooo excited about this? its okay if i am because I have the fabric that i have been looking for. (squeal of happiness) anyone else get this excited?

    It's very exciting when you find just the right fabric. If you like it that much, I'd call them and tell them you want the rest.

    As hard as you've looked and as long as you've waited, you have every right to be excited! Definitely order the rest of that fabric!!!

    After a long search for a certain fabric, I feel like yelling, "Eureka" when I find it. A couple of years ago I was searching for Veggietales fabric for an I spy quilt. When I finally found it I could hardly contain myself.

    It's not at all weird. We know how long and hard you searched to find it and it is a beautiful batik.

    It's really exciting when you have been searching for a certain fabric especially if you have seen it before and then decide you want it. I have been just as excited so enjoy your fabric. Sue

    A few years ago I was making a special quilt for my first grandchild. I think I went to about 20 fabric stores (shop hop) until I found all the right fabrics for what I wanted to do. I was very excited to find them all.

    Definitely NOT weird! I am making 4 identical Christmas throws for family members in memory of our grandmother. They are based on the vintage postcard fabric made by Kay England a number of years ago. My design needs more of one fabric than I anticipated and I was heartbroken as I wanted the fronts to all be alike. I was "over the moon" with joy when I found more online. Our grandmother used old greeting cards and typed verses, sayings or short poems on the back with an old portable typewriter then assembled them into books for each of us. The fabric brought this thoughtful gift back to mind.

    I hope you ordered the rest of that fabric - you know there's a perfect 2nd project just waiting for it!! And no, you are not weird - we all understand the excitement, the rush and the high we get from this beautifully creative hobby we all share!

    Not weird at all. Part of the fun and challenge of quilting is "hunting down" the perfect fabric. When you've found what you want, and sometimes it can be very time-consuming, the feeling is pretty sweet.

    Congratulations on your find.

    Years ago, my sis in law and I found some black/blue/white starry fabric that is a wonderful backdrop for many other fabrics. When Wally World stopped carrying fabric, we went into a panic and went to a WW 30 miles west of us (one the still carried fabric) and ordered a full bolt. 10 yds, I think???? Never been sorry one second. Still love it for many uses.

    LOL, I get that excited sometimes when I find a fabric I love even if I wasn't looking for it. Especially if it's at the thrift store or at a yard sale where I can afford to buy it!

    I think that if you really love it and they have it still, I'd order it.
