Have you noticed this blog's been a bit quiet lately? That's because there has been very little sewing going on around here.
And do you really want to read about yet another snow storm? Probably not. But we are currently in the midst of yet another one. Sigh.
Or how busy I am with work and school? As if you're not, right?
Or my adorable dogs? No, of course not.
But speaking of dogs. I almost adopted another puppy yesterday - a black lab/newfie mix just like our beloved Abby. Her name is Rose. She's 14 weeks old and already 33 lbs. Isn't she precious?
Sadly, we did NOT adopt her.
Even so, I almost went back yesterday to visit her again.
However, to avoid the temptation I went to a fabric store instead.
Not just any fabric store but the fun one - SR Harris. Woot!
While I didn't find a few specific items I was looking for I did find some knits and linens. I know, they're not too exciting sitting in a pile, but I have plans for each and every piece. I'm quite proud of myself as I showed quite a bit of restraint actually. And the trip was much cheaper than buying a puppy.
My favorite? That piece on top. It's a knit with a big bold taupe/black/red design. It wants to be a dress but the print is so bold that the dress lines must be simple. Did you notice the green? That's for a friend. She loved my wide collared knit top so I'm making one of her. The others? Well, you'll just have to wait and see. I can't give away all my plans now can I?
I was reading the latest post from "Did You Make That?" and was thinking how fun it would be to organize a sewing-bloggers get-together locally. What do ya think?
SR Harris would be one of our main stops of course.
