First stop was Michael Levine's - where I did a bit of guilt buying. See, I was supposed to finish my sister's coat for Christmas. And we have a muslin! But actual construction of said coat hasn't really started yet, so I feel a bit bad. Also, my recent adventures in the land of sewing home dec has me believing that pillowcases are the best gift ever. So I bought some cute cotton prints to make a few more holiday gifts...
|Cameras! My sister majored in photography, so she has a thing for weird looking cameras.|
Also, sparkly dots because, um, pretty.
Next stop: The Loft. Bins and bins and bins of remnant fabrics. Everyone had fun digging, though I don't think anyone left with as much poundage as usual. It is always a bit of a hit or miss in there, but I did manage to find several pieces to bring home:
|Blue poly peach skin for a shirt muslin, and several knit prints.|
We had a lovely lunch at a local taco place and discussed everything from school to sewing to books to kids and driving. It was a fantastic day of shopping and making new sewing friends. I am so happy I was able to go - it was tons of fun and I would love to do another blogger meet up again!
