So.....I was trolling the Vogue Fabrics site ~2 months ago and found this:
The Sophia Knit fabric swatch card!! For only $5. I ordered but it turned out they were sold out. It arrived this week. yay!
Swatches of all 28 Sophia colors are on this card.
No more guessing about colors on the computer monitor, yay!
Since I know there are many double knit fans like me out there, I thought I'd share this gem.
My mom's sewing machine and her lilacs. The lilacs always smell great and this year was no exception. This picture was taken the morning after Mother's Day. Dad moved mom's sewing machine into my childhood bedroom. I need to make space for it here so until then it will be in my childhood bedroom.
Mom didn't enjoy sewing but she taught me how to use her sewing machine and until I started taking online and in person classes at sewing expos, I taught myself the rest. It was the machine I sewed on from ~12 until I graduated from high school and got my Baby Lock as my high school graduation present. She sewed a bunch of Cabbage Patch Kid clothes on that machine and I still have them!
