Did I paint it or not?
I almost never shop for commercial fabrics, but today I needed a binding for a wallhanging that is almost finished. I looked through hundreds of bolts of fabric in 6 different stores with no luck, atleast no luck for a binding fabric. On a clearance table though, I did find the deal of the week! This fabric was marked down, so I got 2 yards for $3. I love it as a background, and I can't dye or paint it myself for that price. So, the answer is no, I did not paint it --- atleast not yet.
