The early bird gets the . . . .
Fabric! I went to the Jo-Ann's sale early this morning. I had to be back by 7:30a so my huband could go to work, so I got there right at 6a. Besides the zippers, lining and notions, this is what I bought:
Black and white large houndstooth boucle for $2.00 a yard. I've always liked houndstooth, and I'll make it into the jacket for this outfit (Vogue 8319), with the yoke of the jacket and dress in some black crepe I picked up, too:
I also bought this fabric:
This is a silk/cotton blend, again at $2.00 per yard. I bought 4 yards. Not sure what I'll do with it, but I couldn't pass up the bargain. They also had it in an aqua/lavander colorway, but I liked the coral/red better.
Today is the official "Christmas Decoration" day. The kids are excited, plus we're going to Concord to the *other* Jo-Ann's (to pick up stuff the one in Belmont didn't have!) and we're going to Bead It! so they can make necklaces to match Shae's dresses for Christmas and so I can get supplies for my mother's Christmas gift. If I have time today, I'll cut out my daughter's Christmas dress, and work on the AB dress some more. Right now, I've got two very excited children waiting for mom to get off the computer!
