To culminate the month's activities I had dental surgery on Monday, I've been recuperating all week so I'll be able to return to work next week. Seven days of house sitting has the tendency of making me a little spacey, (I did get a little hallucinogenic on Tuesday when it rained none stop all day long, and even though I couldn't leave the house anyway - felt even the more trapped). I figured it was a combination of the narcotic pain pills and a case of feeling sorry for myself (hate when that happens).
BUT FOR TODAY, I had planned my escape and at 6:10 a.m. (with head and face fully covered) I was sitting outside of Hancock Fabrics (joined by my friend Cecil) waiting for the doors to open for the $4.95 wool fabric sale. That's right, clocks were set, and my Mother gave me a wakeup call to make sure I got there in time. There was no way I could miss out on this sale, and this is what came home with me:
|Glorious yards of herringbone tweed (blends) and 100% wool crepe.
|And of course a few patterns found their way into the bag.
Now as for this afternoon, I need to cleanup my kitchen and then it's on... cause I've got a real serious case of the SEWS - that's what I call it when I need to do some sewing really, really bad...
