"Sew", why do we have to do titles?

Trying to figure out a title is the biggest stumbling block. I can write for hours, but don't ask me to title the work!

As you can see from the heading, I love fabric. I confess; I buy (or want to buy) fabric just because I like it. There doesn't have to be a need or a use for it. I love the colors and the patterns. I seldom get pieces that go together, because often I don't care for the coordinating pieces or see a need for them (at the time). Or, if I do buy the coordinating piece(s), I can't seem to figure out what to do with them. Or, I'll see a piece that I just have to have, and then I never find anything that does match it.

Suddenly, I'm seeing several crazy quilts in my future...

Do you ever buy fabric, then get it home and wonder why? You can't take it back (at least not at our fabric store).

My biggest problem is buying fabric for a certain project, then getting it home and not liking it. Or, I get the fabric home and decide I'd rather use it for something else. But, wait! There isn't enough. Since the nearest store that carries clothing fabric is 1-1/2 hour away, I can't just jump in the car and get more. And, which bolt did it come off of? Where is the sales slip???

Years ago (like 35 to 40) my mom and I bought fabric in a place in Michigan that gave out a slip that listed the fabric content and care method for each piece purchased. That was so nice. And, that was before computers! It would be so easy to do now with the bar code scanner and printer that prints out the list for the clerk at the register!
