We slept in this morning. By an hour. Which is unusual for us.
Yesterday I headed into the city to the Ultimate Sale at Fabricland. Everything in the store was 50% off and I needed buttons for sure. The store wasn’t busy when I went in at 9:30 a.m. so I got done quickly.
Large sized buttons for the headbands are expensive and getting them at 50% off certainly helps.
I bought a piece of red satin for another top. It is that lovely blue red that us winter people love. It was on sale for $6.50/meter.
I bought this lovely teal blue satin. It is my favourite satin to sew. And it was in the bargain bin and on sale for $2.50/meter. The matching lining was the same price. The colour isn’t true until you look at the next picture – that is the true colour of the satin.
I got enough to muslin a dress for a client and what was left on the bolt will make me a vest. I can wear it with blue jeans and a classic white shirt.
This embroidered saree fabric was also on sale for $5.40/meter. I will use it up for sure on something I am sponsoring to a rodeo queen contest.
I also got some serger thread (red and teal) plus some gold embroidery thread. My most expensive buy of the day was yarn to make myself a button cowl or neck warmer.
I have the teal buttons for it. They are handmade by a lady east of the city. I bought some beads to put on top of the buttons to hide the holes. This cowl will be expensive (about $20.00) but it is for me.
I am thinking of a 3/4 length coat in black wool for next winter.
Today I am going to work on the kitchen, sew some, print some lessons for tutoring, and crochet another headband. Busy day but there is some fun things in it for me.
