GIFT FROM THE FABRIC WHISPERER...

...when ever you see any type of communication from "THE FABRIC WHISPERER", aka Carol Ware (you read about her here), it usually contains a picture of a jet plane - something like this...
This symbol of "The Fabric Whisperer" is fast becoming well known in the sewing community. It means: send your fabric to my house pronto!  Most of the time when we see it the response is: Ha, that'll be the day!  This time the jet plane was sent to my house!  Imagine my surprise when I found a package from "The Fabric Whisperer" stuffed in my mail box that contained this...
2 2/3 yards PolkaDot Silk Jacquard  (the good stuff)
and 2 yards Cream Poly Chiffon

Although I was just kidding when I said "Send Fabric" this beautiful fabric will be cherished and put to good use!  How many people can say that they've received fabric form Carol's bountiful stash????

    1. It was such a blessing for her to share Marjie and I am really appreciative. Problem is I have few places to swing in a holiday dress (hahaha). I'm actually thinking of making camisoles from this nice flowy fabric.
