Steve is traveling all week and I am already exhausted and it is only Tuesday. Max had a baseball game tonight and it took FOREVER. He looked very cute and grown-up as the catcher. We played against a team with lots of his pre-school and grade school friends on it, so it was fun to see everyone. Driving home thinking about getting the two little ones to sleep, homework and cleaning up . . . I realized no sewing tonight. I am dying to try my hand at some more dresses for Ellie and my nieces.
To my delight, TWO packages were at the front door waiting for me to come home. Even though I am too tired to sew, I can fondle, cuddle and fold and refold my new bundles of possibilities. So much double cotton gauze, what should I do with it first? I love some of the sun dresses I have seen done with it, especially this and this. Then of course the quilts, especially this and this. hmmmm, I will probably just have to hold it close for awhile.
After placing the order for the Far Far Away prints I was happily going about my weekend. I started to follow a couple of on-line fabric stores on Tweeter and I couldn't resist taking a peek at the new Echino double cotton gauze at Fabricworm. Once I saw it . . . you guessed it I had to place another order. Isn't it stunning? Not being able to choose which colorway, I of course had to order the lion print in both. I think it will become a sundress . . . the other prints perhaps floppy bags? The print is so fun, it might just have to become a wall hanging or canvas. Also the drape and feel of this fabric is so wonderful. Enough time on the computer, I need to go enjoy the peace of a quiet house and roll around in my Japanese cotton-ney goodness!
