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.


  1. It great to hear that you have a good time. Now I am looking forward to seeing that top done! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Glad you made it back safe and sound! And no, you can't borrow my dress! :)

  3. Glad to hear you had a good time and so much was raised for breast cancer. I have that jacket pattern, too, and want to make the one with the piping....but I keep putting it off!!! Perhaps your version will inspire me!

  4. Glad you made it back safely and you had a good time..

  5. Great cause, glad you had fun and lots of money was raised.

    Love those glasses! :D

    That's such a pretty blouse, can't wait to see your finished product. Enjoy your sewing!

  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.
