You'll have to forgive my lack of creative posting lately. We're still in the midst of this Flu That Won't End (huh, kinda like the winter we just had!). We're on week two of being sick--this week is the boys turn. So all of my creative energy is being spent on reading stories (mind you, I've lost my voice), wiping noses, cooling foreheads, and bringing popsicles. ;) Thankfully, I've been catching up on some knitting, so some finished projects are nearing!
But, thanks to the beauty that is the internet (what would I have ever done 15 years ago? Oh my), I've continued to BUY fabric. ;) Here's what's come in the mail lately. (Click to enlarge).
Above: I finally broke and ordered some of that lusciously soft Minkee fabric--the sage green--to be used for the back of a baby blanket, maybe?; and in the middle is a few yards of the Munki Munki dog fabric; and then the red plaid flannel also from Munki Munki. Both for the baby quilt, if I ever feel brave enough to make it.
This is from a quick run to JoAnn's....some brown corduroy for beach pants for boys; striped shirting for the "cuff" linings; and my favorite find from Goodwill this month--a very very large linen skirt from Boden that will soon become handbags!
And my favorite! A vintage skirt find from my basement that I forgot about since yard saling last summer. Can you see the animals "hiding" in the forest? I love the kangaroos! I can't decide whether I should save this for the baby quilt, or turn it into a purse....I love it!
And speaking of yard sales.....I saw one last weekend!!!!!!!!!! It's time! I was so excited...this is the time of year where I start seriously jonesing to get out there and scavenge. Let the hunting begin!
