I had a dental appointment today and treated myself to a shopping free afterwards. I haven't had much of a good retail therapy session since last Spring.
That and the new bed I sleep in now...I am a new girl!
I decided upon these buttons for Sir Swing Cardi.
I miss my lovely button store we used to have here in Buckingham...sniff.
I found some black grosgrain ribbon for the button band. I have to sew button holes with a sewing machine for this project. I thought this was an interesting aspect. I was grateful to find some time to tack in ends on my sweater while waiting for Dr Tran today. No where near the end of the ends. I am blogging instead of tacking too. Sigh. I may not have this done for the Vogue Event tomorrow.
Lo and behold I found 5 meters of a black Toile de Jouy fabric today. Ivy went nuts when I got home. The whole point of buying it really. She has been coveting this fabric for months. I can't believe I found some today!! I still have to manage a backing piece of fabric to the duvet cover I promised to make. I hope to find something less expensive yet classy.
I still have curtains to concoct$$$. Would you believe I did not shop any yarn store today? All day I kept hoping to find a new one along my way. It's a disease.
