About Me

My photo
I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Fabric Purchases and Work in Progress

First up we have girls Easter dress fabric, lining and trim fabric. A swiss dot voile in a floral with lining in the lightblue and trim in purple. This I shopped for today after getting Fabric.com's lawn that had 4" flowers, not suitable for a little girl.
This is the littlest one's outfit top in progress, I hope to finish later this week.

A cute cotton I bought today off the 2.95 table, I love those hexagons.

This is a sale linen-look fabric, drapey, tan and black.

All in all, pretty good pickings at Hancock's today. Now to get the pipe under the house fixed... It was spraying water along the underside of the house and there's a little lake under there. These pipes are old and probably just corroded.

Great fabrics! I so wish our Hancocks had not gone out of business. I really liked that store and miss it.

A good haul! Hancock's still has a few stores in the DC area, but none anywhere near me or anyplace I ever go. They have always had better quality fabric than Joann. Given the state of my stash, it's probably best I never go to one!

The girls dress is a pattern I love for little girls. I just finished something similar for my daughter. A classic jumper it is.

Omg I'm sorry about all these comments, thought the button wasn't working! I was starting to get frustrated! As you can see I said the same thing 3 times.
