Tuesday Diary Bits

1.  I did not sew on Sunday.  I just couldn't get it together.  I think I needed another day to rest.  So I let it go.

2.  I'm fully registered for PR Weekend in Philly.  Yes, I've committed with a little arm-bending from Karen, so I'm looking forward to seeing you all there!

3.  Since I'm going to PR Philly, I've told myself that I can't buy another piece of fabric until that weekend.  I even cancelled my last Fabric Mart order.  What the h*ll have I just done?  If you see a woman roaming around the streets of NYC with a single swatch in her hand, saying I need more fabric...I gotta have some fabric...Why can't I buy a yard of fabric?  Just give her a hug and tell her that May will be here sooner than she thinks!

4.  But on the upside ~ we are going to JoMars!  JoMars - I think I love that place as much as I love Fabric Mart, so I will just quietly chant it to myself when I get a little shaky from fabric withdrawal.

4.  Ummm, I've got five weekends left to finish my SWAP!  D*mn now I'm starting to get worried!  I've still got quite a few pieces left to sew. *LOL*

5.  I sent one of the pairs of shoes back - the tan patent pump ones from Dillards.  They weren't comfortable.  And I tried to make them work...HARD!  I wore them in the morning, y'know when they say it's the best time to wear your new shoes, still a little tight.  I wore them with stockings...naha...so yesterday they were boxed up and sent back!

6.  I'm really mad at Sheila!  Not because she did anything...well maybe she did!  She's made three amazing pieces from Butterick 5147.  I've had that pattern forever!  It's been on my to-sew list forever.  Have I made anything from it?  Noooooo...but Sheila's made some amazing pieces so I've decided that I'm mad at her! *LOL*

7.  I think I wanna sew!  I think I'm ready...of course I am...I have engagements for both days this weekend.  You know you always wanna do something when you don't have time to do it!

Okay...I'm out...these are just a few of the things rambling around in my brain.  Gotta go and watch Lost - only 8 more episodes left!

Oh, one last thing...I don't like alot of reality shows but I LOVE Dancing with the Stars and this is why!  Seriously...did she dance or was she just using her partner as a stripper pole!?  ROTFLOL!

One a serious note, please read NancyK's post today!  Stand up and be counted!

...as always, more later!


  1. I'm proud of you for cancelling your Fabric Mart order! What do you think is worse: a fabric diet or a regular diet?!

  2. Let's plan which train to take down there. Is it down? My knowledge of geography is sketchy at best.

  3. May will be here sooner than you think. May will be here sooner than you think. May will be here....

  4. If I saw you "roaming around the streets of NYC with a single swatch in her hand, saying I need more fabric...I gotta have some fabric...Why can't I buy a yard of fabric?" I'm pretty sure I'd cross the street!! ;) I'm glad your coming to PR Weekend in Phila. Ddon't forget the VW swatch.

  5. LOL, sounds like you need to rename your blog "Diary of a Fabric Junkie"! But I know what you mean . . . my stash is embarassingly out of control. I think I'll try to follow your lead and not buy any fabric until the PR Philly weekend . . . which is gonna be tough, since I'm going to Lancaster, Pennsylvania this weekend for the big quilting show and I just know that some vendor or shop is going to have some garment-type fabric that I just can't live without! Help me!!!!

  6. Hey, I'm going to PR weekend, too! I'll see you in Philly.

  7. Hmmm.... no fabric until May, that's tough. But just think how wonderful you will feel when you get to Philly - you will feel totally entitled to have a guilt free fabric binge!

  8. Oh how I wish I could go to a PR weekend!! One of these days I'm just gonna board a plane and go! Ya'll would take care of a country girl in the city, right?

  9. YEAH!!!!!!! I get to meet you.

  10. I will be at the Philly PR weekend too. I am really looking forward to finally meeting you in person. It is going to be so much fun. You canceled a Fabric Mart order? I didn't know that was possible.

  11. WOW, that you actually cancelled a fabric order shows so much more resolve and personal fortitude than I could ever hope to have...

    May will be here soon!

  12. Yeah!! I will see you in Philly... so looking forward to it. I too must curb my fabric buying til then, it's seriously out of control. My plan is to sew a garment a week from my stash til May... lets see if I can :)

    You so inspired me with your dresses and jackets that I had to take a hold of my fears and do it. That pattern was perfect for reigning in my fears.
    I'm working on the last remnant of that V. Wang charcoal fabric for a skirt from B5147, you will definitely enjoy working the pattern, each piece is a pleasure to work with. As I am hand sewing the lining to the zipper I'm thinking about which fabric to use for another skirt and another dress and definitely another jacket ;}

  13. Sounds like a fun trip you have planned!

    I don't watch DWTS, but I clicked that link... wow, her kids must be proud..

  14. I just read Nancy's post and left a comment. How embarrassing for us as a people. My 6 year old behaves better than some of those people.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! It is so appreciated!
