I'm back!

Thanks for all your well wishes. I made it to and from Gettysburg safely and had a blast while I was there. Can't you tell?? Over $17,000 was raised for breast cancer research.


I had way too much food and drink while there and I dread the weigh-in at Weight Watchers today! Somehow I shaved 2 hours off of my trip there and back but my butt could not tell the difference.  I did pass a JoAnn's on the rode but decided not to stop because 1) I can shop at JoAnn's locally 2) I didn't have room on my bike to carry anything extra and 3) I don't need more fabric! Before I left I was in JoAnn's and picked this up...


Did I need it?? No! But did you check out the clearance price?? The regular price was $49.99. I can always use more lighting in my sewing space.

Up next in my queue is McCalls 5859. I have a lemon yellow linen blend that I'm dying to cut into. The fabric is pictured in the lamp photo.

  6. Good to see you made it to and from safely and I'm happy to hear you had a great time.

    Which version of M5859 will you do? I attempted the short-sleeved version and wasn't impressed with how the caps fell on my shoulders.
