Silk chiffon with silk velvet. Totally impractical, but great sale prices are a powerful motivator.
I have a plan for this fabric along with the sensible cotton lycra woven for the lining.
And well I'm told that tangerine and oranges are quite in this year.
And then there is this...Mushrooms, big beautiful printed mushrooms on a heavier cotton fabric and how perfect the small red and while polka dot works for a lining.
This print is way to big for a blouse or dress, but will be a very fun second lined housecoat, an item I have found is getting a lot of wear.
Nancy Reagan or maybe Jackie O fabric.
I have coveted this for well over a year, passed it last sale for another vintage looking plaid coating and couldn't let it sit through this sale. Simple nice white cotton lining. Pattern already picked out. Almost sensible except for the fact it is white, pale green and has sparkles. Oh yeah Baby!
Now onto the practical!
Waterproof fabric for a rain jacket.
Cool color and texture and this should make a fun
jacket. Much prettier than my over sized yellow rain slicker with hay and crud stuck to it. This won't be for barn wear!
Shirt fabrics: Blue print corduroy, lovely black and white cotton and a retro alarm clock fabric.
Fun but in darker colors hopefully good at hiding dog hair and hay bits.
A nice felted wool with a hint of cashmere in charcoal grey.
This should make a great warm jacket and heck, I can just let the dog hair become some of the felt!
Since I was on an obvious mushroom kick, this somber print came home too, complete with skull and cross bone ribbon.
Poisonous mushrooms you say? ;)
Lastly, something I thought I might never be buying again. Fabric for a quilt.
A small quilt, fast and easy, but a quilt none the less. Here's the pattern I'll be using.
I'll also give a small shout out to Cindie who came over to Ashland yesterday for a morning of shopping and lunch. It is always fun to enable and be enabled and mostly to sit and chat! Good luck on the maiden warp with the new loom!
Next post you'll get to see what's on my looms. Fun there too.
Parting shot: Oh PLEASE let me go upstairs with you!
And yes he did, along with 7 of his closest friends......
