I received an email from Gorgeous Fabrics saying ALL the knits are 25% off today! I love their knit so I hurried over to see what they had. So many really pretty ones. I think I narrowed my choice down to 8 of them. Now that I have learned all the tricks of how to sew slinky stuff, I want to have a closet full of pretty rayon knit blouses. I should be back home at our real house in a few days, and then I can start with mass-production!
Trying to figure out how to get Lucy (my dress form) down there isn't easy. Jerry has that little van, but it has a giant wheelchair in it. Lucy takes up a lot of room. I wish her legs bent. Then I could just put her in the passenger seat and she would look like a person -- well, maybe not -- she doesn't have a head. Maybe I could glue one of those wig heads on her and put a big floppy hat on it. Then I might be able to lay her in the back seat, and it would look like she was taking a nap or something.
Of course her feetless legs might have to stick out an open window. That might be a bit of a problem.
OH, I KNOW -- I could put my high heel boots on her, and then it would look perfectly normal. Ha!
Where there's WILL, there's a WAY, as someone used to always say!
Someone needs to invent a pull-apart mannequin. Either that, or a bendable model.
We are in Kingfisher again today. Jerry signed a contract with a realtor a while ago. Then we went to lunch at my favorite little restaurant, the City Cafe. Homemade apple pie today. Awesome! I ate a piece and brought the last piece they had home for later. Now, I am sleepy and would love to lie down on this couch and take a nap. Jerry is still fixing stuff. I can't stop him. Whoever buys this house is getting a great deal. They may want to replace the countertops, but other than that, I don't know what would be needed.
If I can figure out HOW, I'll post some pics of my Gorgeous On Sale Knit Fabric purchases. My order didn't go through the first time, so I went back to redo it and somehow, some more fabric jumped into my bag! I'll have to share with Phylly.
Here is a snapshot of a few of them:
These are all from Gorgeousfabrics.com and are all rayon knits. Jerry is excited I am sewing with something that isn't COTTON from Hancock's. He says my blouses all look alike and are so casual. Well, I'm a casual girl. I HATE to dress up. Would like to make a lot more yoga pants though to go with all these pretty tops.
Any sewers out there may want to rush over and check out this 25% off sale. Her fabrics go fast!
The other pieces are solids. Something else I seldom make.
I better go. Got to start packing up the pole and base I am returning to Fabulous Fit. Not sure HOW I'm going to do that, so need to get started.
