A hunka hunka burnin' love

I've always been crazy about red pickup trucks.

I saw this fabric at Joann Fabrics a few weeks ago. Didn't buy it. Went back two days later, and it was all gone -- all of this and all of the Christmas version of it. Turns out somebody happened by and bought every inch of the fabric they had -- bolt upon bolt of it. He said his sideline is making pajama bottoms, and that's what he planned to use the fabric for. So how did I get this piece? I ordered it online. Had a little problem with the order, and the rep on the phone mentioned they still have 60 yards in stock, just in case you want to sew some red pickup trucks yourself. Ask for "wranglers" from the Alexander Henry Fabrics Collection, 2005. This year's collection features cowgirls!
