But I remember it, and the reason is simple: I get to see it every day! :)
After being hidden away in a closet for years, I finally pulled out the bulletin board and got it ready to hang on the wall--to not only add a little color to a blank space, but also to help in our homeschool.
Here's the blank wall, see?
And the bulletin board, also blank.
Then, when I went to the counter to buy it, I asked the lady for one yard. "We don't sell this fabric by the yard," she explained. "We sell it by the panel because of the design."
Well, that makes sense. And speaking of sense, I should have had the good sense to take the tape measure out of my purse and measure the cloth exactly to see if I needed one panel or two; but with keeping an eye on Tobin, Shav, and Moriah who were "helping" me shop, and feeling pressure from the growing line of customers behind me, I instead quickly blurted out, "I'll take two panels then."
I came home and discovered that was twice as much as I needed.
At least my mistake wasn't too costly. All in all, I only paid $12.59 for the fabric; and now I have some extra to do something else with, right? Someday? Years from now, when I am once again inspired to do more than just the tasks that provide for our basic needs? ;-)
Much more inspiration!! :)
