Leaving a conference in Dallas, I took a little side trip to IKEA in Frisco and went to Carrollton to hit up a quilt store, which was a bust. However the town square also had a really nice antiques mall where I got the fabric above. The tag said “poodles fabric” but I would think those guys are lions. Someone else voted poodles too so let’s just compromise and call them loodles. There was a booth in there with a dizzying collection of vintage buttons, all carded and sorted by color and composition — pricey but not outrageous — unfortunately I was too hungry to concentrate and had to leave to meet someone, so no scores on that front. But if you ever find yourself in the north Dallas suburbs, it’s worth the trip.
