A "Moods" Lunch

Today I met my girl, Elizabeth, for a quick lunch date at Mood. Once there we met up with Meg, who has a new gig working at Mood...can you say envious!  Yeah that would be me, having a job where I'm surrounded by fabric would just be mind blowing to me!  


Meg is also blogging at Mood Sewceity Blog, so follow the adventures of Swatch the Dog, hear about new fabrics that are in the stores and online at their online site and meet some of the wonderful and incredibly helpful staff. Seriously this ain't propaganda, remember this outfit?  It wouldn't have been so wonderful if Jeremy hadn't taken so much time and helped me get "the perfect fabrics" for the Christening Gown.  


I also want to encourage you to get a Mood's Reward Card.  I love any fabric store or site that rewards me for doing something I do naturally ~ buy fabric! *LOL* So if you're a local to either store, get a card!  I've already put a dent in mine! 


I've got some photos to share from my Mood Lunch:

And what followed me home:
On the left a cotton print
On the right black silk satin

I've got plans for the black silk satin...so stay tuned!  The cotton print is rattling around in my brain so I don't know what it will become yet, but isn't it lovely? This little junket has definitely jump-started my sewing mojo and I'm raring to get next to my sewing machine and sew sumthin'!


...as always, more later!

  10. It is always fun to spend time with people that love to shop for fabrics and sew! I noticed you both were wearing coats. It has been hot here in the Houston area for a month, in the mid to upper 80's!

  15. Carolyn, I'm sure you are aware of the fact that in order to add your blog to blog list one must mispell the word fanatic and put your site in as "fantaticdiary.blogspot.com"
    I'm writing this in response to one of your commenters not being able to follow your blog. I had the same problem when I started following you and was dissappointed until I went back and looked at how the spelling actually was. I'm not criticizing, so don't be upset with me.
