the picture doesn’t give it justice, as it’s a deep green than it looks, I thought it’ll look good for a Jacket & a skirt & blouse from the print, well according the patterns I needed around 5  yds, I ‘m not even 5yd’s tall lol! the saleslady says well there's only a little over 3 butttttt it’s 67” wide hummm, I smiled & said  well as short as I am I believe I can make that work , I’ll take all of it lol!this outfit is going to be interesting! lol!

I also went to the Library to see about some books for the reading challenges I’ve signed up forchallenge12

I thought I’d better snag these since I’m going to have to re-teach myself on  a few things

I love a good deal and your patterns and fabric are wonderful. It is good to challenge ourselves out of our comfort zones. Please post your outfit when it is progressing. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

Hi Nanna - well, you've got yourself into this spot...! wait until April starts. Actually, I found the rules a bit daunting - I didn't read them until after I started. I don't like hypercompetitiveness either - I entered just to get myself doing something. It doesn't matter if it doesn't work out.

Hi Nanna- you can do it. I absolutely love that green fabric and the patterns. Hopefully the sale is still going on. I'll have to swing by and get some.
