Breaking News

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you this breaking news update:

I got some SWEET fabric yesterday with my G Street Fabrics livingsocial deal!!

These were on the "please buy me" remnants table:
(Please excuse the poor quality of most of the following photographs. Sigh.)

hefty green tweed
impossible to photograph, lightweight denimy something
denimy closeup with underside
difficult to photograph, white shiny dotted mystery fabric
satiny on one side, cottony on the other
Dots! black + pink on creme  -- from the silk remnants bin
Milly silk

After finding these, I was innocently walking past the cottons, minding my own business and this pima cotton sateen started calling to me. I was essentially defenseless against its charms.

I couldn't get a good photo of it (who, me?), but it does perfectly match the pink dots in the Milly silk.

smooth, buttery, lightweight pima cotton sateen

I also picked up some zippers and covered button kits, which have both been on my list for a while.

I'm planning a top of some sort for the pink cotton, a skirt or maybe a dress for the Milly silk (I'm chicken to put huge 3" spots on my top half), a blouse for the satiny dotted white fabric [UPDATE: I just learned this is likely flannel-backed satin, best for lining jackets and making PJs...this may change my plans], a Ginger skirt for the denimy stuff, and a pencil skirt for the green tweed.

Who knows when these plans will actually materialize into finished (or even in-progress) projects, but, you know, I'm just documenting that I shopped with a little bit of a plan, instead of going willy-nilly as I'm inclined to do upon setting foot in a fabric store.

That concludes this breaking news update. Stay tuned for my scheduled Part II estate sale finds post tomorrow!


  1. Hmmm, yes, they are all lovely, but that green tweed steals the show in my book!
