Today I went fabric shopping. I love fabric shopping. All those colours and textures. I just walk through the store and touch everything. It fills me. I really do love it.
Fabric stores are all about possibilities and potential. Beautiful things to touch to see… beautiful things that are just waiting to become. Unfinished things just waiting for the right person to come along. A good fabric store just makes me feel happy (but a badly set-up one fills me with anxiety). I love my fabric store.
Today I bought some really cool denim (you’ll see it in the photo below). It’s for a ring sling I’ll be making for my cousin Jamie. She’s due in a few weeks. Some slings are hard to shop for because people want such specific things, which aren’t always easy to find – and in some cases just aren’t available locally… and I don’t buy a fabric I can’t first touch. Jamie was fun to shop for though. She wanted a casual fabric, preferably patterned, preferably with blue, green, or brown in it. And initially she said no orange, but then took that back, and said orange would be okay too. I couldn’t believe my luck… to find denim with a fun floral pattern in BLUE, GREEN, AND BROWN. 😀
Jamie, hope you love it! 😀
I also bought some new tulle. Tutus and ring slings are probably my two favourite things to sew – and I now have fabric for both. LOL Jamie gets her sling and the wee girlie gets a new tutu. Joy!
On another note… only had one entry for my Scraptastic Saturday challenge. So she wins the gift certificate for Sugar Pie Scraps store at ESS. Congrats!
There is still snow outside.
I would just sit in a corner and pout… BUT… I can’t…. cause I’m doing the happy dance. 😀
My cousin Jamie and her long time fella, Chris, are having a BABY! Yep, yep, yep! Due date Oct 14 (or was it the 13). I’m so beyond thrilled for them. I was very honestly just thinking the other day how wonderful it will be when they decide it’s the right time. Jamie is going to be a great mommy. She absolutely adores children, and is such a good natured, gentle person, and coming from our family she’s also loud, fun, and great for a laugh… the perfect mommy combination. 🙂 So, despite my pouting over the weather, I’m thrilled beyond measure for Jamie. And excited that I get to make a sling for another new baby. I love sewing ring slings, especially for someone I love. 🙂
CONGRATULATIONS Uncle Rob!!!!
