A Truckload Of Fabrics

Easton and I finally made our way to Needle Nook Fabrics this week to check out their new shipment – needless to say, I didn’t come home empty handed (in fact I could have purchased more, but showed some restraint)!

I wound up purchasing 3 yards of a pink, brown and white stripe knit (enough for both Taylor and I some shirts), a gorgeous turquoise jersey (I’m envisioning making myself the sleeveless version of Jalie 2806 for this), a yellow and white stripe knit (I’m thinking of making a v-neck version of Jalie 2005), a brown with pink polka dots jersey for Taylor (I have no idea of what pattern to use, but I’ll know it when I see it!), a multi-color yarn dye stripe, a wonderfully soft grey knit (it was to cozy not to buy), and lastly a fantastic red, black and white print. Bret has promised that if he goes fishing this week that he’ll allow me some serious sewing time – it looks like I’ll be sweatshopping it soon!
Lastly (because it has nothing to do with sewing), a photo of a my children napping…. it was too sweet not to share:

Now it’s off to the softball fields – Taylor has a busy day of practice, games, and pictures! What are you up to this weekend?

    That is the sweetest photo of the kids! They are lovely.
    You are so ambitious! Good for you!
    We are dinner/dancing tonight at a gala. I have not yet decide what to wear! The event has a 50’s theme but is dressy. So I will just cruise my closet. We didn’t decide to attend in time to sew anything.
    Weather is good so I will continue my big garden projects.

    I was wondering how Taylor and Easton were getting along, and that picture answers my question. I have a little brother and my mom has several pictures of me sleeping under his cradle while he sleep in it.
    As for the weekedend, we had a yard sale and are now going couch shopping. We didn’t make that much money, but we sold our couch.

    What a great group of fabrics and the picture of your children is priceless.
    This weekend: DD#2 participated in the state track meet, two events, two medals. Tomorrow will be her high school graduation. Packed weekend.
