Readers, I was fabric shopping earlier in the week with an old friend -- more about her in a bit -- when I saw this sign at Fabrics For Less on 39th St. (now combined with Chic Fabrics). Behind it was a cute vintage tractor-print -- quilting cotton really -- for just $1.99 a yard. It took a few days for me to make up my mind, but I was back there this morning and grabbed, alas, the last four yards.
