Fabric shopping ...

Not too long ago ... maybe a month and a half or so ago? I bought tons of fabrics. I made sure some of them coordinated so I could use them together for the same item. And today I began to cut pieces for an outfit I need to make that will be a birthday present and the party is Sunday!
But then I realized, in the middle of cutting, that the 2 fabrics I bought to create this outfit look horid together! LOL! I'm not even exagerating! I don't know if it is the lighting or what but I can't understand how I ever thought they matched! LOL!
So off to the store I went to buy coordinating fabric that really matched. But of course, now I need to prewash it, dry it, iron it, and hten I can begin to cut it!
I really wanted to finish it tonight too!
Oh well ... I still need to seam my poncho and add fringe, and I have 2 bags with all the pieces cut out, just waiting to be sewn, and lots not forget hte sock and the dress I am currently knitting! So I'm sure I'll have plenty of things to do tonight and hopefully tomorrow I can finish the outfit for the birthday girl! LOL!

  1. Hee. I totally wouldn't have even noticed they didn't match, because I can't coordinate to save my life.

    OT, but I was wondering if you have started that book "Dumbing Us Down" that you have in your books section? The title intrigues me.
