No Wardrobe Progress

I was too busy over the weekend to get any sewing done. My twin sis has finally moved back to California. It's sad to say, but she left her husband and came home. After years unhappily married, she's moved back to be with her family and we are all so happy to have her home. She's rented an apartment only 10 minutes away from me. I was 6 months pregnant when she left, so now Son and Sister will have an opportunity to get to know each other better.

You know how it is when you aren't sewing, you're shopping. That's exactly what I've done. I have 10 new pieces of fabric and no where to put them. What's a girl to do? I found the only Hancock's in Southern California and did some damage. Son's best friend doesn't live too far from this store, but it's about 25 miles from me. Now that I know where it is, I won't mind driving Son to friends house any longer. I got the first, third and b/w dots fabric from Hancocks. The second one came from JoAnn's and the rest from The last two fabrics on the right I got on accident. sent to them to me and I didn't get the fabrics I wanted. However, the little sticker says that they are the ones I wanted. The end piece should be a teal twill, but it is a printed cotton and the one next to it should be a crepe knit but it's a slinky. I called them but it was past closing time so I left a message. I almost hope they let me keep these fabrics because I do like them. As of today, they have over 100 yards each of the ones I wanted so I'm sure they will send them to me. I'll let you know what they tell me to do with the incorrect fabrics.

It's a large file, but if you click on the picture you can see how really pretty these fabrics are. I hope to get back to the sewing machine tomorrow.


  1. Gorgeous fabrics, I especially love the brown/orange ones.

  2. LOVE your fabrics! The one on the far right is TDF!!!!

  3. What a haul! Those shiney, reddish orange pieces are really calling me! Can't wait to see what you do with them.

  4. Dear Serril's sis. You can do it baby, keep on going. Here am I 18 months along, and I'm happier. I am. Yep, that far right one, you better keep it hidden!

  5. How fun to have your sister so close!! That will be wonderful for you!

    Ooh, I feel for you the roving teacher. I was for 3 years at my school, and I've decided that MOST teachers are extremely territorial! LOL. I had to teach in almost all of the rooms in one of our buildings and it was a nightmare sometimes. Oh, ok, most of the time! But I survived. I only travel to one room extra now, and have my own room for the rest of the day. That's nice!

    Here's wishing you good luck with your new year too!! :D
