I Bring You...

More sewing. Don't worry, though, we're getting to the end. Very little sewing left.

I was a little amazed to find this Alexander Henry print that I'd been coveting since, like, forever, at the local JoAnn's. (And lemme tell you, the local JoAnn's is waaaaay nicer than the nasty old CA JoAnn's that I used to frequent and I've already been to two local independently owned fabric stores that were just plain lovely. So there's that.) Now if only I could find the AH print with the yellow birds. If I, say, went to JoAnn's this afternoon and found it, well, that would be awesome. And I would be forced to like JoAnn's since they carry fabric and Bit'o'Honey.

Oh, yeah, the fabric:

Alexander Henry Fabric

Since I've declared war on paper products, I decided it was finally time to buck up and switch to cloth napkins. And apparently, work on my hemming skillz.


All I can say is that I'm going to get me a hera marker post haste. Endless hemming, hemming, hemming, hemming, hemming zips along much faster when you crease your folds first. Having no hera marker yet, I used my Martha Stewart brand bone folder. Worked okay. But since I'm going to JoAnn's and all, I really should pick up a hera marker too. Because buying stuff is fun.

For now, though, I'm going to continue to sit at my desk with my ears perked. The UPS lady is supposed to bring me a new camera today. Eeeee! I barely know what to do with myself. First I replaced my six year old cell phone, now my six year old camera. Ach! My cell phone and camera could have been first graders! If they were not inanimate objects. And not people.
