Linking up over at Life According to Damaris for the Spreading the Love Weekend Blog Hop!
Ooooh, my!!! I just got back from the Hancock’s sale and boy did I stock up! ;)) A lot of fabrics are 50% and they had a GREAT clearance section. They also have their Butterick’s and McCall’s patterns on sale for 99 cents! That includes the Butterick’s Vintage!!!
Here are the 4 vintage and one vintage look (*I* think) patterns that I got!
It’s OK. You can be jealous. 😉
I stocked up on gingham! Pink, green, yellow!!!! OHHHH, how I LOVE gingham. I think it’s due to the cute Gingham Girls paperdolls I had when I was little.
Oh, I got some great Madras, too! I even picked up some Spiderman and Green Lantern for c2. BOTH were on sale!
I am all set for sewing for quite awhile. Of course that doesn’t mean I won’t hit any more sales if they come up… It is an addiction after all. ;))
I need to find something bigger to store my fabric in…. The milk crate overfloweth…..
On another note…..
I think I mention in my About Me section that we raise rabbits. These are NOT to eat. LOL Apparently that is a big thing in rural Virginia. Nope, we raise them as PETS!! I mean really!! Who could eat something so soft and fluffy???
Well, we had some of our little ones escape. We managed to catch a few but there are still one or two that we can’t get. That number has now been reduced. While the Hubby and kids were all outside they caught a glimpse of Wild Kingdom! Some sort of bird (Hubby says looks like an eagle without the white head) swooped down and snatched up a little black bunny!!! Right in the front yard!!! OMGosh!!! CRAZY!!!!
I am not much of a writer. Never really have been. My blog is going to be more like me just talking to you. Talking is definitely something I do well. 😉
I have been trying to figure out how to add links to the blogs I love over on the side… Yeah, it’s not working so well for me yet. LOL Although I have been able to make some changes for the better! I think it’s just a matter of playing around with it until I get it exactly the way I want it. So until then it will definitely be a work in progress.
Here are some of my very favorite sewing blogs and sites. They will either have great inspirations, free patterns or tutorials. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!!!
So there are a few of my faves! I know I am missing a few so when I think of them I will come back and add them here. Keep an eye on this post! 😉
I think I will be starting on my children’s skirt today for the Crafterhours contest. I can’t wait!! I hope I can get this from my head onto the fabric! LOL It’s definitely going to be different. I ❤ different!!! So time to clear off the dining room table! That’s our homeschooling site AND my crafting/sewing site, not to mention that my library is . LOL Lots going on in that room!
Oh, and in case you haven’t noticed I LOVE to use !!!!! and smiley faces and caps……. Yes, I still have a bit of 7th grader living inside me. It’s OK, though, we get along well. LOL
