saturday again.

I have a serious love of Saturday.

Oh. And have you seen this?

The most fascinating thing I've watched in a long, long time. Highly recommend its placement in your Netflix queue.

Neeexxxtttt....We have a new Joann's! Er, we now HAVE a Joann's. Previously the only source for fabrics/patterns near me was Hancocks, a few indie quilt shops and Hobby Lobby. I made my first stop yesterday. My thoughts...too much "crafty" stuff (more than half the store) and too much fleece. Messy dress fabric section with mostly synthetic fabrics.

So basically it's my local Hancock's, better lit, with fewer buttons. Ah well. It's still nice to have another option! Hope it makes it longterm.

I didn't have trouble finding something to buy, they were having a 50% off most fabrics sale. I got these two plaids: (poly/rayon blend)

Some lightweight white linen for another "anthro" top (yes, I'm going to finish this one and make another. Shut your snark.)

This brown "boucle"-ish fabric (and some brown Bemberg to line):

Yummy moss green rayon knit (brighter and mossier than this photo):

Don't have a clue what I'm making with any of it but the white linen, but probably (in order): skirt, skirt, top, jackiet, top.

I have a real desire to sew today, so I plan on doing that in some form or another once I unpack and start some laundry. I've been away at a conference for a few days. I love Saturday's, but I HATE unpacking!

Have a good weekend!


  1. We have NO craft/fabric stores in my small town. I repeat: None!
    So, I resort to going out of town to several craft stores. My favorite is this small sewing studio in Martinsville, VA.
    But I also go to JoAnns, Hobby Lobby, and Hancocks, too! :)
    Happy Sewing!

  2. Jos has fabulous sale patterns. Where else can you get a pattern for 99cents? Very often buttons and notions are! 50% off. Can't beat that.

  3. Oh I so wanted to hit Joanns today for some holiday prints for the little project bag store I started. What was I thinking?

    I also have a strong desire to sew - but I'm waiting until I vacuum. Since I'm on the laptop not wanting to disturb the sleeping dogs (let them lay)nothing is getting done. I hope you are more productive than I. g


I love hearing from you, and thank you in advance for reading and commenting! &
