Not a big sewing week for me -- actually very little sewing done at all. I don't have any particular project that I am working on so I have very little motivation to sew.
Monday was my YD's birthday. We had a very quiet dinner (well, as quiet as it gets around here) and dessert.
This is her "cake". It's really pudding and more pudding and whipped cream. Very yummy.
On Thursday, this was delivered to my office. I had pre-ordered it so I didn't know when it was coming. I'm very excited, lots of projects from Ayumi at Pink Penguin.
Then on Saturday, we went to a bunch of yard/garage sales. At the first one I got the following: an old Vogue sewing magazine, a Butterick pattern for a vest, and an old singer book on altering clothes. They were $.50 each. I also got a pyrex bowl for $.50 (not pictured). I'll be sure to note these in my list as four more $1 items (I'll have to change that to items ≤ $1).
Then at another yard sale I got this fabric. It's Look and Learn from American Jane from around 2007. Not sure exactly how much there is, but there is over a yard of the main fabric, a charm pack, and over a yard of a light blue stripe that was part of the line. There were also a couple of yards of white muslin. It was a kit of some sort. I think I will use the main fabric as a backing but I'm not sure what to do with the rest. I had thought baby quilt but my YD doesn't think the vintage look of the fabric is good for a baby quilt.
The other fabric I got was from the Noteworthy by Sweetwater line. Katie had given me a charm pack and I felt like I needed more of the fabric -- again I don't know what I am going to do with this. All suggestions welcome.
On Friday night, I finished reading To Kill a Mockingbird. Another item off my list -- and it was pretty good too. I've seen the movie but it was so long ago that I had forgotten most of it. I want to re-watch the movie now. I'll check Netflix or Amazon Prime.
On Saturday night, we watched Argo. Even though I knew the end result, I was chewing my nails through the whole thing. I recommend seeing it. I really like Ben Affleck and John Goodman.
Guess that's it for now.
