Well at least for the next 9 days! *LOL* I am sitting in front of my computer at 6:45 pm on a Friday afternoon...that in itself is a big deal since I don't normally arrive home until well after 8 p.m.
My office closed at 3 p.m. today and even though I didn't leave at 3, I was out a 1/2 hour later. Took the subway down to the garment district to pick up some lining and some zippers - didn't accomplish the zipper part, Steinlauf and Stoeller were closed but did visit my friends at Ebad Fabrics (if you are ever in NYC fabric shopping, stop by and tell Nabil hello - they have the best price on beautiful linens!). He also talked me into a beautiful a 3 yard piece of black herringbone twill linen. This will make a great pair of pants!
And now I am home, taking some time to surf the web, open my mail and rest up! My order from SewMamaSew was in the mailbox and I am thrilled at the pieces. Tomorrow I will pick my baby up from the sewing machine store - she is ready! There was a message that my machine is at Sears but I am a little leery...we will see! No matter what, I am sewing tomorrow. Picking out my first pattern and going for it!
I will post my all about my sewing vaca here!
