My oldest daughter is amazed at how long I’ve restrained from buying anything retail, oh mercy how long has it been since a few of us signed up for the SEW YOUR OWN WARDWROBE FOR A YEAR CHALLENEG five months ago, did anybody go through buying withdrawals?,I did lol! right at time I signed up Cracker Barrel put out the most beautiful cloths I’d ever seen them sell, the Malls were bursting with bright vibrant colors,to keep from going into detox lol ! I dove into Hancock's pattern sales, fabric clearance tables& dove into canning full force, this will most defiantly keep you to busy to shop or think about shopping lol! speaking of pattern sales did you know Butterick went on sale today for 99c lol! through this sewing journey I have met many wonderful ladies from around the globe, it’s interesting that as we are headed for Fall some are headed for spring some Summer, some are a day ahead & though I am writing this here at my bedtime there are those who are just waking up sitting here with their coffee ,so not only am I meeting wonderful new friends from around the globe, revisiting my sewing skills that had gone rusty lol! I’m getting a lot of culture & I love that!
