This and That

Where's the love, apparently this post made Schey scream, there are a lot of people who aren't happy with this dress but there are just as many who are so I'm going to reserve my opinion until I actually wear it. I remembered this Vogue jacket that I made a couple of years ago, which provides another styling option in cooler weather.

Speaking of Vogue, the JoAnns store that's 5 minutes from my house is closing, all the Vogue patterns were 1.99, I purchased a few last week and went back this morning and got these.

I know the last time I posted that I was incorrect they were 3.99 so here's the receipt.

They are also selling some store fixtures, pattern drawers are going for 20.00 I had to resist purchasing one, my current file cabinet is sufficient and that would only make me buy more patterns.
My friend's daughter made this adorable remote caddy for me, she's 11 and sews with her Grandmother, maybe one day I will get to do the same I've given up on my daughter ever catching the sewing bug. I love the fabric she knows I LOVE watermelon.

Still early in the weekend I hope to get some sewing done. Just kidding about Vogue 1250 everybody's entitled to their own opinion, please don't be offended.
