Expo List

Oh, my, we leave tomorrow!

I am so not ready...the pj's aren't quite done and I've no idea yet what I'll wear.

I kinda like to wear things made from stuff purchased at the previous expo, but between here and there (the weather forecast says it will be snowing in the Rocket City when we return home Saturday night!...but it's going to be fairly nice in ATL...) I just haven't been able to pull something together. I think I'm going to have to ditch my preference for wearing garments made from the pattern designers whose classes I'm taking and just go with what I've got that will work.

Although I *could* wear the Houndstooth Jacket. Hm. Maybe I'll just wear that jacket both days w/different tops.

Anyway, I'm hoping that the Scissor Guy will still have one pair of the needle-nosed snips that Cynthia Guffey talked about last year. It was the last class session and I didn't have time to go down and order a pair (he was out of stock) so I figured I'd get a pair this year. And I've been needing a new Ergo Rotary cutter since July, when mine fell off the cutting table and I, uh, stepped on it. Broke the guard spring anchor, so I had to tape the guard permanently out of the way. Not ideal.

But this year I've got a list of fabric I'm looking for:

White shirting
Black and white stripe shirting
Black 4-ply silk (depends on the price...)
Black tropical wool (more choir pants!)
Sage silk duppioni
Sage knit
"Ocean Teal" (um, sort of aqua? It's the color the ladies are to wear Easter Sunday) knit or shirt weight woven for a top.

I probably won't get all of that, but that's what I'm looking for. It's all for the choir wardrobe. I'll probably allow myself ONE 'Oh! I love that!' fabric that's not on the list. We'll see how much $$$ I spend on the list stuff first.

I'll report back on Monday... Huntsville Master's Commission will be doing all the service on Sunday, so no Choir Sundays post this week.

Wow, what'll I wear to church???? ;)


  1. Lisa, have fun at the Expo! I wish I could be there, too. Hopefully next year.

  2. OOOOHHH sage silk dupioni sounds scrumptious. Have a blast!!

  3. Have fun at the Expo. I haven't been to the Puyallup Expo (the west coast option for us Alaskans) in years. Next year for sure!

  4. Oh, Charity, I'd love to go to Puyallup someday! There are vendors/instructors there that don't make it to Atlanta...hope you can get there!
