Ok y'all. I am alive, but man did last minute wedding stuff suck up all my free time. Oh yeah, and making my wedding dress. I have a ton of stuff to post about in the next week or two!
So last week, which was after my wedding but before my bff Stephanie's, I got an exciting email. Alicia, who lives in Chicago as well, was getting rid of a bunch of her sewing stuff. She said she had tried to sell it on craigslist, but that was making her annoyed and sad, so instead she was giving it away! And she wanted to give some to me! Whoo hoo!
Yay! I went over to her house after work and ended up prancing home with three bags of loot! She was super nice and fun to meet- so thanks, Alicia!
On to the loot:
|4 silks and a printed lining.|
|3 pretty knits.|
|3 printed cottons and the water-color silky woven.|
|3+ yards of a beautiful wool from Parron's!|
|Close-up: it's mostly brown, white and olive green, so pretty!|
|This is paean to my (lack of) photo skills, but it's like a minty green velvet. Om nom nom.|
|And lastly, a whole shit-ton of zippers and thread, woot, woot!|
After I organize all of my pictures, I will post about my bridesmaids and wedding dresses, the stuff I "built" Steph for her wedding, the bowls from my ceramics classes and other stuff I was too busy to post about. Oh yeah, my pattern testing Robson coat for Tasia, as well.
And I will pay back the karmic cycle of sewing giving by having my monthly pattern giveaway in just a few days, so keep you eyes peeled!
Thanks again, Alicia!
