Damn Wagon

Either the wagon has to be stronger or I have to find another mode of transportation.  Fabric Mart is evil.  EVIL I tell you!  Let's just get to it.

polyester ITY
 

navy cotton pique and floral stretch cotton pique
 

stretch silk/cotton twill
 

 poly-rayon-lycra double knit

navy/cream cotton shirting

Do I have plans for all of these lovelies?  Of course...just as I have plans for all of the other lovelies.  Putting those plans into motion is another thing. 

Moto jacket update:  Still no zippers!!  Arrrrgh.  I ordered them on Sunday.  They're supposed to be here tomorrow.

  2. Been there...still there...refusing to leave. Their knit sales kill me and my wallet every time. I am running out of room to store my lovely stash in.

    1. Heh. I like your first statement. That pretty much explains all my fabric buying habits. =)

  6. You would need to be very strong to resist all those lovelies. How lucky you are to have such gorgeous fabrics available.

    1. Thanks Kathy. I definitely don't need any more. In fact, I think I need to do a big de-stashing.

  7. I know EXACTLY what you're talking about... I promised not to buy any more material (except lining etc for a project I"m actually working on) about 2 months ago. So far, I've only broken the promise once, and I've actually used one of the two pieces I bought that time. I've also made about 6-8 items (I actually lost count) but the last two were wadders. I'm working on a top at the moment from remnants that are actually too small, so I'm piecing them together to try to make big enough pieces to cut the front and back of a top. Hopefully the pattern on the fabric is big enough that the seam lines won't show... or maybe I'll disguise them somehow.

    1. I know me well enough not to promise not to buy any more fabric. =) I can go fabric-lite, but a full fast? Um...no. Granted, my buying has decreased dramatically over the years. This year, I count six times where I bought several pieces of fabric at once. Hmm...yes six. That's a HUGE decrease in buying.

      Wadders can definitely kill the sewjo. I've had quite a few this year. Hopefully we'll both end the year on good sewing notes.

  8. PS. This http://www.veronicatextiles.com.au/products/m_32302903_cw_5597x5_cw2.jpg is the fabric I'm working with at the moment. It's (hopefully) going to be the lower part of McCalls 6435 View A, with the top section in aqua sheer mesh.

    1. Oooo. This is quite pretty. I'd like to see how this plays with the aqua sheer mesh. I think the aqua will play with the other colors in the fabric quite well.
