I still haven't found what I'm looking 4

Woo hoo! I'm wearing Skirt 4 today, and this is one of my favorites; I love to live in this skirt! I wish I had more like it in lots of different colors... Maybe I have to go to the fabric store later today? But where are the cool fabric stores in Dallas? I couldn't even find traditional seersucker the other day, and that made me sad...
*************************************************************
I posted U2's lyrics in my title because I still haven't found what I'm looking for in a fabric store in Dallas, and all I want is to find the fabric that I want!

First, I went to Golden D'Or Fabrics on Harry Hines.

I'd heard about places like this, but I had no idea they existed. This was a H-U-G-E warehouse full, FULL - floor to ceiling full, of bolts and rolls of fabric.
This is the back room of Golden D'Or where all of the clearance fabrics are.
Don't you just love that orange and yellow jersey mesh?

How about this print? Maybe a skirt???

Nah...

At the Bimbo factory outlet for un poco sabor de Mexico... a little Mexican flavor.

Next stop: BEST Fabrics.

This is the place for great decorator fabrics!
Above: plaid dupionis
Below: Fuzzy furs

But I still haven't found what I'm looking for...

What do I want? Kelly green jersey knit and traditional blue seersucker. I guess I'll have to look on line, but I did discover two new fabric stores in Dallas.

I'm looking for other things too, but I realize that I have to stop looking and let them come to me.
