Visited Mood Fabrics

I have been very busy with the two History classes I am currently taking and have not done much sewing. I have participated in two fashion shows with garments previously made.  I went to  NYC over the weekend and visited Mood Fabrics, Metro Textiles and Ebad Fabrics....First time for all the fabric stores.  It was awesome and a little overwhelming.  I did not need any fabric as most sewists don't, but I purchased 6 pieces in total, one stretch trigger from Mood, 2 rayons and 1 knit from Metro Textiles and 3 cottons from Ebad Fabrics.  I am certain I could have done more damage but as it stands, I already own enough fabric to start a small fabric store of my own.  Had a wonderful but brief time in the Big Apple.  Hope to visit again sometime soon.  Working on a couple of dresses for myself.....(Finally)
As always, Happy Sewing.

Computer Issues

I am posting from work.  My laptop has a few issues at the moment.  Taking it in to get looked at later.  I am doing some sewing.  Working on some looks for a fashion show at a friend's daughter's school. One down and 11 to go.  I will do posts and pictures later.  I wanted to post something for the start of February.  My goal is to post at least once a week.

Congratulations to the New York Giants!  Not my favorite team, (Dallas Cowboys) but in my favorite conference (NFC)....

As always, Happy Sewing!
