I’m envious of anyone who finds time to sew clothes in December!
I’ve not sewn since early December – but I’ve not bought a single item of clothing either. However, this week I had the good fortune to take a quick trip to New York, and visited Mood Fabrics for the first time!
Swatch was hilarious running up and down the aisles, and the store was awesome in the truest sense of the word.
I fell hard for the jerseys….
I fell hard for the silks…….
I would have fallen for everything if I had been alone. Thank goodness I was with another woman, the wife of one of my husband’s colleagues who doesn’t sew, and time was an issue, so my purchase was limited to eight pieces of fabric.
Do I feel any guilt from such indulgence at Christmas?
Z e r o .
Since August 31st I have bought n o t h i n g to wear. Since August 31st I have bought 5 pieces of inexpensive fabric at Mary Jo’s Cloth Store.
The alluring windows along Fifth Avenue only fueled my creative juices and desire to get back to the sewing machine.
And yes, this really is the Statue of Liberty draped in a gown of jelly beans.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
