So besides shampoo, Saturday we went to Golden D’Or. Plus, someone else paid for my stuff so I don’t really see how a day could get any better. (I did try to pay for my own stuff, but my mom wouldn’t let me. Twist my arm!)
I was on a mission to find some knit prints in colors that weren’t intended for pasty-pale blond people (I will be so glad when the color trends swing away from the “spring” and “autumn” color groups… I. Am. A. Winter.)
I managed to find these pieces (I could probably have found more, but my mom wasn’t totally interested in spending multiple hours in the fabric store):
From top left: raspberry-red slinky (3 yards), GORGEOUS midnight blue slinky (4 yards), black/white polka dot poly blend (2 yards), black/white grid pattern poly blend (1.5 yards), multi-colored square poly blend (2 yards), pink/white/black (1.5 yards)
The color on the slinky just does not translate in photos, it is absolutely dense with color and totally beautiful, especially the blue.
In the bargain room I got:
Ultra-fine deep red lawn/batiste—so thin it’s practically gauze (4 yards for $10!) and black sequined border lawn—the border is on both selvedges (3 yards). Tunics ahoy!
We also got two things for the Evil Monkeys (even though they have tons of fabric already):
Black/white and orange/orange poly knit with velour circles. Black for Goth Girl (that would be The Big One) and orange for red-headed TLo (despite her refusal to admit she is, in fact, an autumn).
My mom suggested making leggings for winter. I suggested a short jacket. I think she ended up buying enough to do both. It’s pretty cute.
And then we got this:
Poly/cotton scrub fabric with kittens. Since the Husband refuses to let me make scrubs out of this for him, I guess we’ll go back to the original plan which was to make pillow cases for the Evil Monkeys. They will love them.
So much fabric (and not so cheap, either) but now I wish I had MOREMOREMOREMORE. Uh. More.
