2006-10-20 * Get Dressy
I've had a gift certificate to JoAnn's since last Christmas. My dear friend Lauren gave it to me, and I didn't just want to fritter it away on something random-- I wanted my purchase to be special, and to remind me of her. So, I finally decided exactly what to spend it on and even made a list so I could go straight to what I wanted and not be distracted by the aforementioned random (but oh so appealing) things that call out to me. I was on a mission to buy two patterns I've been wanting for a few months now, and the fabric and notions to make one of them.
I also bought the pattern for Alicia's Casserole-Bringing Dress For Fall, but I was too intimidated by the 20 pieces and choosing the right fabric to get anywhere with that one. But it is in the queue!
Because sewing frenzies are always accompanied with baking frenzies Chez Belleepoque, I also made some pull-apart sweet potato biscuits yesterday. I will confess that Moondoggie and I basically just had biscuits for dinner. But they're good for you, right?
And omg, do you know what came in the mail today? My Stitchettes! Eeeeep! They are even tinier and cuter and more wonderful than they look. I've transferred one to some muslin and will be stitching away this weekend at the beach.
