Busy Beaver Kinda Day
Lori Holt's "Bake Sale" fabric line one more time. I have been drooling over this fabric for oh so long. Lori is hosting a sew along if anyone is interested in joining in check out her blog!
Sassy Little Apron's for our little girls today. Super sweet apron pattern for little or big girls
We have water!!! It took until after 6:00PM yesterday for the repairs to be completed, having that stash of water was sure nice. I still have it setting on my counter just in case. Sure enough they were back at it today but only to clean up the mess in our neighbors yard so the back up water wasn't needed. Hubby and I are researching additional ways to have emergency water on hand!!
After a much appreciated shower today I got hubby a box of goodies in the mail Kara and I made over the weekend before going to the fabric store to purchase the "Mixing It Up" quilt pattern. That's where the trouble began. I was laser focused on finding the pattern then getting OUT but I had to walk by the fabric too get to the display, oh Lord. Maybe just a piece or two. I know I can use scraps and my stash for the pattern but it seems wrong to not have just a little of the fabric line in the quilt. Birthday's..... I have some GF Birthdays coming up, they all love play time in the kitchen I could make gifts! SOLD
I did have $60.00 in rewards bucks in addition to a $25.00 gift card that helped but still...$54.00 out of pocket. Of course the car demanded gas on the way home to a tune of $63.00. Post office wanted $21.00.
Well, well...It was a busy as well as a spending kinda day. Tomorrow I am grounded. No matter what else goes on I have to get busy cleaning up the sewing room. I should be aggravated with myself over bringing yet more fabric in this house but I'm not. That's a sure sign of a fabric addiction don't you think?
I have a couple of young friends (suckers) who are taking up sewing. What new too sewing lady wouldn't love a nice box of cute fabric all for free I ask you. Filling up a box or two might be the only way I will ever get the sewing room back in order.
