We have an amazing little local library. Any book that you are looking for they will hunt down and borrow from another library, sometimes hours away! "Linda the Library Lady" as the Goons call her is so wonderful in putting books on hold for us that she knows we will ike and find useful. This was one of them. What a simply delightful book! It is beautiful to look through and its layout is simply perfect!
So our stockpile (did I say 'our' I meant 'my') has been brought up from the basement and oh my, what a mess! I've decided on making a bucket bag (on the right on the picture) for Sprout, a pocket bag for myself, an everyday skirt for Missy and so the list goes on.
The skirt will be saved for the holidays and perhaps I'm sew a tie of the same fabric for Magoo. There is a darling pattern for a gardening apron that is screaming to be made for my Mother as well!
These should keep me very busy while D is on another buisness trip. Those are getting easier each time. The Goons and I are getting into the routine of having D home for a week and then away for the weekdays of the next. It helps that it is Autumn and we are all craving veggie stews and simple meals, made even more simple when it is only the Goons and I at home.
Here is a picture of my overflowing fabric pile....
Ofcourse Monday while running Mum B around town for her errands I stopped by Fabricland as they had a huge sale on and couldn't resist some more. The Magen David will be used to make a skirt for Missy and a tie for Magoo for the holidays.
