Here's all the fabric I bought on my travels, except for Kaimuki. Kaimuki wouldn't ship, so Shannon and I mailed the fabric from the post office. Tracking shows it made its way to a sorting facility in Honolulu, then departed Honolulu, and then....nothing.. May 7 estimated arrival date. Today is May 12. So...I'm giving it another 2 weeks to show up. I mean, it has to show up. I paid $23 a yard for some of that fabric!!!
Here's what I bought at Discount Fabrics in San Diego with Elizabeth.
Black stretch lace, purple cotton knit, because I want to make a shirt like KID, MD.
Funky alpahbet viscose, purple and navy luscious double knit, and metallic piping from Gwen Couture.
Gwen knows how to package-she wrapped the fabric in tissue paper first, and then put it in a plastic bag. And she included those "Made in USA" labels--how great is that?? Such a neat surprise.
Here's the motherload from Stone Mountain and Daughter:
Sweater knits, double knite, cotton knits, knits knits knits. The black knit is black on one side and sort of an indeterminate color on the other.
More double knits including elusive turquoise; stretchy sequins and pink flower ribbon.
I saw my parents for Mother's Day today. Dad showed me his sewing area in the basement.
LOVE how he's annotated his serger.
Lilacs from my parents yard. I love them! (my parents and the lilacs).
Anyhoo, I am feeling completely overwhelmed, but that is a post for another day.
Be well and good night!
