Mom, BB and I hit 2 fabric stores and a craft store yesterday. Yes, I bought more fabric---I had a coupon. Isn't it pretty? I'm going to make it into a skirt with a yoke.

Mom bought this one, which she's also making into a skirt. So cool.

I LOVED this one, but I have a particular need for it and I'd already spent WAY too much money, so I left it there. But I love.

I'd bought some fabric last summer and don't like the pattern I bought to go with. I also couldn't find any patterns I like in any of the major pattern companies. So I got out my old patterns and found this, which I've never made. It's from the 90s, but doesn't look it, does it?

So this week, my last week of vacation, I'd like to make a dress and skirt and cut out another dress. We'll see.

I hit the halfway point on the bodyguard story yesterday---woot!

Oh, I really like that first fabric. I love Southwest jewelry, and that's what it looks like.

BTW, the past two kitty pictures have been hilarious.

Yup, Trish, exactly what it looks like. I couldn't put it down once I saw it. Apparently it was there when I bought the buckle fabric, but somehow I missed it.

The last one reminds me of the CA story I wrote. If I sell that book, I'm buying that fabric. Don't know what I'll do with it, though!

I love the 90s dresses, and I admire the hell out of your ability to make your own clothes!

Natalie, the skirts are VERY simple. My baby brother, who can make frock coats, makes fun of me. But I can use all that fun fabric!

I went back for that last pattern, BTW. Am going to try to make a purse.
