I mentioned 2 weeks ago my plan to make a navy skirt, but first I had to waste hours hunting for a ready made skirt. I went to 7 different stores in 2 different shopping trips and found 1, 1! navy skirt and it was a slinky knit that I didn't think would work with my sweater (or my body.) So I checked out the local fabric store and their navy had too much blue in it. So I drug my son to High Fashion Fabrics yesterday thinking I would find the perfect fabric. I DID! It was on sale 50% off! Wow! The end of the bolt said it was dark navy 100% wool imported from Italy. Perfect. Regular price $77.00. Even at half price it was too steep for me. So I looked at a polyester and bought some that will work but just not quite my VISION.
Jeffrey found a couple of black and white fabrics he loved and decided that he needed a pillowcase made out of one of them. I picked out a music fabric for the border of it. He is sewing it but until I get him to sew (maybe this afternoon) it is in my stash.I finished 2 pages for my 2 of my grandson's quiet books, blogged here. I'm counting it as 1 yard which seems high to me even but there are many layers there...8 in places, 4 in the thinnest areas.
