A little retail therapy

Some woman like shoes or clothes and maybe purses. Nope not me I hate to shop for those things but instead would spend hours in a fabric store. (ask my hubby!) After a little coffee/donut time with a friend...where our boys went a little nutzo ;), the kids and I stopped at a fabric store for me to recover. They were soooo good. A~man likes to hang out in the little area that has toys and Z~girl? well she shares my love of all things fabric....gotta love THAT!! Here are some things I picked up. The pinking sheers (mine are MIA) are to finish up a couple fleece quilts for two of my nieces. The felt and book are for a homeschool sewing class I'm hoping to prepare for in March if I can get my ducks in a row. The fabric Z picked out for me to make her a skirt for the father/daughter event in a couple weeks. Little does she know I am going to make her American Doll (ok it's a cute look a like) a matching skirt.

These were taken a couple days ago when I gave Z her first machine sewing lesson. She has been wanting me to teach her for a long time. She and I made a cute skirt for her American Doll. I haven't taken any pictures of it yet but will soon. She did awesome!


  1. I LOVE it. Young sewing enthusiasts just warm my heart. Good for you, passing on your love of creative things to your kids.

  2. Z's picture says a lot! Your retail story is a truth for all of us, whether books, overstocks, or something else. I have a cousin who has a fetish with the kitchen stores.
