fabric love


fabriclove.jpg, originally uploaded by tinkerellen.

fabulous fabulous fabulous weekend. the fabric store, loved it! and it's minutes from my house. this could be trouble. i ended up sewing all day with a friend. i've already made a little something for mother's day gifts, an awesome bag which i'll show off once i finish the handles, and a great reversible headband out of the very top fabric. i'm so in love with my sewing machine, i never knew it could be this way. now i feel guilty for shoving it in the dark dismal closet all those years. not sure what to do with the rest of the stash just yet. i do want to pick up an easy skirt pattern though and head back for some cute amy butler fabric....

oh, and i was at the post office by 8:30 am on saturday! i couldn't even believe it myself. so jen, expect some cute shoes and cheap sweaters in the next few days.

anyway, brilliant creative weekend {even had time to make a killer spinach lasagna}. i'll post more pics tomorrow...

My friend is opening a coffee shop and she was telling me about the person who is designing her logo. I said, "Well if you don't like what he does, I have a friend who does that kind of stuff." So, who knows, maybe I will get some work for you, of some kind. ;)

Oh, and as a contribution to my Mission trip, i think you should make me a couple summer skirts for the trip ... because I do need them.

Thanks!
