The Last GF Purchase...
You will possibly remember the stern talking-to I gave myself regarding a going-out-of-business sale. With way more fabric in than I've been sewing...I couldn't really justify adding more, just because it was a good buy.
But then I happened to click on the page with the laces and specialty fabrics, instead of my normal jersey knits.
Y'all. You know you can't just walk into Hobby Lobby or JoAnn's and find stuff like this.
I'm, by an large, a sewer of practical garments. It's really outside of the box for me to get something like this, and I'll be stretching my creative boundaries to actually come up with garments for it. I don't really have a good track record of knowing what to do with lace yardage.
But I'm not going to rush this. The blue lace might even become a Mother Of The ______ garment; and none of the three eligibles are even dating.
But it's nice to know I've got it...and when I do sew it it will be with fond memories of a friend who supplied me with wonderful stuff for a few years.
