Garage Sale Find: Sorry Sandy

Dear Sandy Klop,

You know that I love your designs enormously, and I hope you also know that I think you are one of the nicest people in the fabric industry.  I am sorry that you have to be reading this and seeing the attached photo.  I felt like I had to purchase this bag at a garage sale today for $2 to save it from itself.  I tried not to look the seller in the eye when I saw your lovely orange dots in the most unfortunate of marriages.  There was, thankfully, well over a half of a yard that remains unsullied in the bag.  I promise to unpick the unbearably tacky sports themed fabric from the blocks and to pair them with another fabric more worthy of your good name.

Sincerely,

Susanne

p.s. I did also find a Viking Professional hand blender for $10 in the same metallic grey as the $20 KitchenAid Artisan mixer I scored last weekend so I feel like the garage sale karma is in my favor at the moment.
