So. I went to a fabric shop on Saturday and asked for three metres of white homespun fabric. The assistant looked at me, frowned, and said: you're not going to put that into a quilt, are you?
She could have said: are you making a quilt? I can show you some other lovely fabric that you may not have seen.
That way, she would have created an opportunity to sell me something more expensive but she didn't. She assumed she knew what I was going to do with it and didn't approve.
How odd. What's with fabric snobbery?
