- skip breakfast and sleep in;
- roll out of bed and roll into the sewing room;
- or hit the road Jack.
FIRST STOP: I had to make a trek way cross town to our one and only post office (since they closed the one nearest me) to pick up a parcel that the post lady refused to leave on the porch or with my neighbor. I've joined the Crafter's book club and I wanted my books NOW. There's nothing like a good sewing read now is there?
SECOND STOP: It was off to Macon where I cruised through a little Saturday Craft Market. Only ended up buying three cookies and a jar or the most magnificent homemade salsa (got to break down and make some of this stuff being the Suzy homemaker that I am - lol).
THIRD & FOURTH STOPS: What self respecting seamstress could resist not one, but two fabric store sales: Joann's and Hancock's. Here's a picture of my haul, I've really been exercising control in these areas for the last couple of months. Not stopping mind you, just controlling - I'm sure you understand.
FIFTH STOP: Our State Farmer's Market to add to my fresh vegetable stash for the upcoming long winter's haul.

Thought I'd have some sewing energy at the end of my day; however, strained from the heat of the day, none could be found. Sewing cave progress has been very s-l-o-w with school starting back. I did FINALLY finish my fully lined navy linen suit. I'm sure you'd like to see a picture of me wearing it, which I'll show, but just a over the door picture for now.
I am truly in love with it! Now I'm trying to figure out what style top I want to make to go with it - after all, a new suit deserves a new top don't you think???
