Can you believe that I haven't encountered this book in any of the city's bookstores? Well, I was shocked to find it checked-in at the library this past weekend. And I'm thrilled to finally have a chance to read it--four day weekend coming up. So many books, so little time.
Something else happened this past weekend, I fell off the wagon again. No, I didn't pick up any more patterns. This time I came home with some fabric. My bad.
It was a vintage piece of brushed cotton fabric that tempted me to fall off the wagon. I found in the Annex at Mitchell Fabric, it is like a fantastic fabric museum down there. But I digress...
This brushed cotton was a bargain at $3.50/metre and it is 44" wide. I think it will be lovely for a Vogue 1052 Issey Miyake jacket.
Maybe that sewing resolution was just unrealistic. Wonder if I will be able to give up fabric shopping for Lent? Yeah, maybe that is what I need to do, take smaller steps.
In other news, I'm putting my sewing projects on hold while I work on the purificators.
I'm blessed. Mama R has offered to help me with this project. She offered to help with the ironing. Bless her heart. I hate ironing. She knows me so well. Of course, I don't want her to do all the ironing, but it is tempting to accept her help. Sew, sew tempting.
Well, that is all in sewing news today.
