2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

February 24, 2008

A SHORT SUNDAY EVENING PRE-OSCAR POST

Had to go out one more time to the Hancock's 50% off all notion sale. I like to stock up a little on much needed items but I also like to pick up notions that I like but usually would just do without. Today that item was a loop turner - much better to buy at 50% off. I also picked up thread, taylors chalk, elastic, and I'm really trying to build my button collection back up. Here's what I bought.
I bought an invisible zipper because I want to practice with my new invisible zipper foot. And got this fabric off the $2.00 a yd sale table to make my vintage pj's from the new Sew Stylish magazine.





I had to return a lamp that had gone bad so I used my merchandise credit on my purchases and only had to spend $.49 today. That makes up a little bit for that coupon blunder that I made on Friday. (lol).




While at the store I ran into a dear friend and former customer of mine that I hadn't seen is such a long, long time. Of course we chatted and got caught up on what's been going on.
Ok, thats it for tonight, got to get ready to try to watch two shows, A Rasin in the Sun, and the Oscar Show.
