Where did January go? I think it disappeared into a sea of fabric shopping. Fabric and my obsession with buying yards of it everywhere I go started my journey down the road to sewing for a business. I may have leaped past that line between the joy of shopping and the perils of perfectionism.
The shopping season began with a trip to Sunshine Sewing in Margate, Florida. My little sister accompanied me, and I so exhausted her that we had to stop for some divine New York pizza on the drive back to my parent's house. What began as a jolly prance around a huge store holding bolts of Kaffe Fassett fabric, turned into a nightmare of attempting to find the required three coordinating prints I need for a purse or an apron. I have no idea how we ever got out of that store, but we managed to find our way back to a blender of margaritas (thanks to my husband's mixing magi).
When I returned to Wisconsin, the real shopping began. Hours of online searches! Thank you Fabric.com, Sew Lux, Lucky Kaeru Fabric, Skye Reve Fabrics, Rebecca's Fabric, Creative Merchandise, and a few others cut and shipped my crazy orders. And I can't forget Hobby Lobby, because I just adore the BrotherSister Design Studio! Oh! And then there was the find of the century at local quilt shop. Unicorn fabric!!!! Pictures to come!
I have yet to inventory everything I have bought. Stay tuned for my yardage grand total.
