Exploding Tiramisu

"Thanks Kelly - it is fun to wear and the pattern is great because you can cut out each section to fit your individual measurements.  A knit is recommended, but it works just as well with the satiny fabric I used which had a bit of…"

I have kinda got it bad too.. I go to bed thinking about sewing and wake up

with sewing on my mind. My husband ask me??? What has got you SO  into sewing?

 I started to tell him about my sew weekly and spring palette challenge.. I was really

going into detail He stopped me mid stream and said."ok, ok I got it, you dont have to tell me ALL about fabric and junk".ha Dont think he enjoyed the conversation.lol Judy

Thank you so much for your welcome. I've read that you're going to Olympia for a fair. Please let us know what it's like. I used to live in London and I loved it. Funny enough, I only started sewing after moving to France. So, please let us know. I bet it will be great.

Love,love your flower  fabric that you have bought for your crepe dress ,when your pattern arrives. Cant wait to see it. Judy

Thankyou.. I can't resist fabric.. and the bad or good part of it ,is that  I have a fabric provider very close to me.. Everytime I go to the grocery store, I head to that Department , to see what is new and what is on sale.. So,I just about always  talk my self into a sale item.ha

  I am trying to use my stash for the challenges..And be good..[But, I am still heading in there .ha]

 You said you got your beautiful fabric from "Croft mills".. Is  that  a fabric store?? My local Wal Mart [where I get the fabric in the grocery store], has a  brand of fabric from Croft Mills..Just wondering ,if that is the same producer??? Just curious.

  Happy sewing, Judy

 Sad... about your woolworth's.. Our wal mart's are doing the same thing.. They are phasing out the fabric departments in the stores [say they dont make enough money], Alot have closed already, and  the one in my area, is the only one still selling fabric.. They are talking it will close this year.. [Oh, I hope not.. I will be lost.]

  the Croft mills  there sounds wonderful.Proud you have that outlet..

We have to have our fabrics.ha..

  Fixing to go get to working on my next weeks challenge.. Judy

Thankyou so much.. I like this dress..It is really comfortable.. [But definitely not warm enough here to wear it yet..]Pray spring comes soon.ha Happy Sewing.
