Hello, my name is Stacy and I’m a fabricaholic.
Someone remind me – NEVER sew late at night again. As much as I want to complete a project, I’m afraid that the wonderful ‘wurr’ of my machine at midnight only leads to disaster.
Considering that this will be the third consecutive post on my swap bag, I am sure everyone will be happy to hear that it is finally complete (photos are posted, just continue reading)!
So, just to break it up a bit, I wanted to point out that Liana at Fashioned has posted a number of fall 2006 runway pics this week. A great place to visit for some sewing inspiration – not to mention the fact that I am in love with this All Milly dress.
I’m starting to make some real progress on my swap bag! (Photos are in the continued section of this entry, so don’t proceede if you are my swap partner)
After Taylor’s softball game yesterday – in 108 degree temperatures (they won, by the way, apparently they can tolerate heat better than the other team), I started working on my swap partner’s bag.
Well, finally, my bag swap fabric arrived! It’s great (see below for a posted photo and no peeking andreamarie!) and well worth the wait! After studying it, I’ve definately decided to use the Rebecca Bag style from the Carry With Style book. I can’t wait to get this project started!
Depending on what television station you watched or what bank you passed by, our temperatures yesterday ranged from 107-101 degrees. UGH. Needless to say, we retreated to the basement for much of the day.
I was hoping to create a post today saying, “Hurray, my fabric for my bag swap arrived”. Unfortunately, I can’t. Now I understand that my postal service is a day behind Wichita’s – we are considered “rural”. We don’t have postal trucks (weird, hu?), and, at times, I swear that we still must use the pony express to have our mail delivered. But, I seriously thought that if they shipped it when the said they did, it would be here by now.
