Everything has ended up piled up on the cutting table ~
The other things on the table are ~
This studded trim from M&J Trimming...and these trims also...
(Rolls of polyester organza & polka dot ribbon)
I work close to M&J now and for the last three months I've managed NOT to go in...but I had to waste some time the other night prior to meeting a friend for dinner...so I stopped in. They are having this amazing warehouse sale. Rolls of trim and loads of ribbons and embellishments, laces of all types are all $20 a roll or less. Most of it around $5 or $10 a roll.
That's how all of those amazing things came home with me and truth be told...I'm going back. If I was a costumer I would just go in with a couple of hundred dollars and go crazy that's how good this sale is! However, I'm just a greedy sewist...so I'm going back. If you're in the area, I suggest you head on over!
I also broke my self-imposed fabric diet and indulged in one of those 50% off the entire website sales from Fabric Mart. This showed up this last week...
(A black/tweed reversible doubleknit, a Pucci-type ITY knit
a blue/green chevron ITY knit & blue cotton chambray)
Ojolly is selling these amazing sweater bodies and two of them showed up too. I'm excited about these pieces. I've wanted some for awhile and am really thrilled to own them. Check out her shop, there are some amazing things there!
Lastly, I've been slowly but surely buying 100 sewing machine Schmetz needle packages in all sizes from Amazon. My goal is not to have to buy a needle again anytime soon. So these last packages showed up this week too.
So much buying has been going on but no sewing. Thus the messy sewing table full of things that I need to find spaces for in the sewing cave.
I don't know when I'm going to sew again, but when I do, I have given myself more possibilities to work with and to help me sew better. Also, I'm just checking in...making sure that you all know I'm still alive! *LOL*
I've been spending a lot of time with the grandkiddies lately and I have this picture from this afternoon before our dance party to share...
Miss Lena and Miss Sammy before we danced it out!
...as always more later!
