Life has been busy with jury duty, lack of time, being rained on incessantly, etc. You know… LIFE. I have managed to cut out the camp shirt for Thor, but that is all. I hope to start sewing it Tuesday night.
In other sewing news, I did sneak in some fabric shopping lately. As Karen already mentioned, we met up during the “hurricane” and shopped at Paron’s. I bought only three things, but I love them. Have no idea what I am making with the striped fabric, but I loved the colors and the hand of the knit. The tissue weight knit jersey in lilac/lavender will most likely be a cardigan cozy (which will most likely go with nothing else in my closet, but oh well). And the purple plaid will be a pencil skirt (if I ever get back to my tnt’s again).
Then today, I had my first day of jury duty and what do you know, but it’s two blocks away from my neighborhood fabric store. Shucky darn! They are moving to a bigger space across the street in a week and are having a major sale. Look what I scored for under $30!!!! Most of it is for kid sewing, knits for jammies and the like. There’s a cordoruy for little boy pants too and a grey chambray for a little boy’s shirt.
So if you live in NYC, you should check out their sale before they get all high falutin’ and raise their prices to pay the new rent.
