If you are of a nervous disposition, I advise you to read no further! (Don't worry - it's not spiders, it's something MUCH worse!) Today I had to pop into Rugby on an errand, and while I was there I decided to see if I could buy some red fabric. Recently I noticed that my red drawer was a bit depleted, so thought I'd see if I could add to it. I successfully bought a couple of fat quarters and a half metre for a good price, and returned home in a happy mood. (This is where it gets really shocking!)
I always wash my fabrics (usually in the washing machine with everything else) but since I didn't have any washing to do, I decided to wash them quickly in the sink. When I put the first piece into the water, this is what I saw!
