Ever Such Graceful Frogs

I found this fabric on the JoAnn's Craft Store website and couldn't resist buying a yard or two.  I haven't the faintest idea as yet as to what I shall do with it.  But the very notion of graceful frogs doing yoga was irresistible.  I just had to have this.

Now, I know I am trying to limit my stash purchases to tools and supplies for finishing up the charts I have.  I also know that this fabric doesn't match any chart I have on hand so it's not as though it will come in handy as a backing fabric.  Besides which the design repeat is just too darn large.  But the fabric caught my fancy in  a way nothing has done in a very long while.  The design is on the back burner of my imagination for now.  It's only a matter of time before I come up with a project to suit it.

I expect every crafter has done this at some point or another: buying something as "inspiration" for Lord knows what future project.  I'd love to hear other peoples' stories.  If you've done something similar, leave a comment.

I love the fabric. I can't wait to see what you do with it. I had a similar thing happen to me just a couple of weeks ago. I went to a yarn shop and while I was there looking and touching this one particular hank jumped into my hands. It was so squishy and just the right colors so it came home with me. I had no idea what I was going to do with it until I spent about 2 hours on Ravelry and tried 5 or 6 different things. I finally settled on a very simple shawl that can also be used for a scarf. It is making the most fantastic fabric. Enjoy your new fabric!

I have definitely started doing that, buying a fabric "just because..."
This one is great, I love the poses the frogs are doing.
