I have been quite stressed the past few months what with finishing up school things. Which will be coming to a close (with a little bit of luck) this week. As a celebration for finishing my paper (I hope) I am doing a little blogging. I haven’t had any time to sew. But apparently stress and time crunches don’t stop people from buying fabric. Or, well, at least it didn’t stop me.
From Fabric Mart:
I couldn’t pass up some great deals on these sale fabrics from Fabric Mart:
Of course, I wasn’t able to restrict myself to sale items when I saw these gorgeous fabrics:
fter I bought these I saw the sad announcement that Fashionista Fabrics was closing. They had been my source for Burda magazines until I finally got a subscription. Although I am very sad that the site will be closing, I couldn’t help but be a little excited to snag such beautiful fabrics at great sale prices. Though most of the fabrics have sold they still have a few great pieces on sale – check it out before they are gone!
I also did a little Black Friday shopping. Which isn’t something I do every year, but this year I was trying to eek out as much time with my sister as possible. And since I was out helping her get ridiculously cheap camera memory cards (Black Friday – the favorite shopping day of photo majors everywhere) I figured I might as well get some shopping done for me too. I didn’t do too much, but I did pick up some fleece from Jo-Ann fabrics with plans of making the casual zip-up jackets from the December Burda. No pictures (I mean, it’s solid colored fleece…not that exciting), but with any luck I should be able to get to those before the end of the month. Because I want a snuggley casual jacket that doesn’t have cartoon characters or university logos on it. Not that there is anything wrong with cartoon characters and university logos. But sometimes I just want to wear something without a label, if you know what I mean. Of course, while I was snagging some $2.99/yard fleece I also decided I couldn’t pass up one of the Black Friday door-buster items. And with a 25% off total purchase coupon, well, I think it was a Black Friday morning well spent. So here is a look at my real Holiday splurge:
So. Much. THREAD! So many colors… I love it! Sadly, I haven’t had a chance to use it yet… But just looking at it makes me happy. And anxious to get back to sewing. Which will happen soon. I hope.
