While out.. I noticed Joann's Fabric and Craft Store across the street from the mall so I asked hubby to take me there. I had heard about this store, but yet never been in one.. I found a 50% coupon in their flyer, and drooled over all the pretty fabrics, found a good deal in their flyer and decided to "splurge" on ME for a change.. I bought a 3pc quilting Set.. Rotary Cutter,Cutting Mat and Ruler for $29.99 . I couldn't use my coupon since it was a sale item, but still a good deal !
I was going to upgrade my cell phone while in town, but the Cingular store in the mall wanted me to give up my old phone or they would charge me an additional $20.00 . I'm sorry but I would rather resell my old phone on ebay and ME get the $$ then give to Cingular to refurb and resell.
Today is another day of work.. I'm working 830am-630pm ..
I got an order for a Custom Halloween Patchwork skirt from my etsy store. I ordered the fabric squares I needed and they should be in this week,but I had enough to get part of it done. Good thing I ask for 2 wks to complete the skirt !
After work I have to ponder something quick, cheap and easy around the house I can whip up for us to eat !
Then get our daughter a bath, then if time permits I hope to work on creating ruffles for the romper I'm making.

I really need to take the time out from buying my daughter clothes and buy ME some shirts for fall.. I've had most of the same shirts for the last 4yrs and after pregnancy my body size changed even though I only hung onto a few extra pounds (went from 95lbs to 98lbs). Since I wear Juniors clothes, its hard to balance that fine line of how i want to look.. Don't want to look like a teenager, but yet want to look somewhat trendy ! Womens clothes just aren't cut to fit my body shape and make me look like I'm playing dressup.

Last night I finished my sewing class project..
I made this simple A line button dress with black spiderweb fabric and finished it off with spider buttons. Hopefully in the next day or two I will have time to make a pair of pants to go with it.
This is currently for sale in my Etsy Store

So I managed to find some time to make a few new things for my etsy store..
The 1st was too short and I almost think this one looks to long.. Maybe I will take an inch off the next skirt and see how it looks.

This was my 1st attempt at applique for a Halloween Peasant top I have listed in my etsy store
There is a quilt shop that opened up recently in my "area" and that has a die cut machine..I heard for $30 a yr I can have unlimited access to their machine. They have different patterns, plus can cut quilt squares. I hope to go check this out on Thursday before class. This would be really beneficial to me.. I want to make more patchwork skirts and plus do more applique work.
I ordered Moda's Spooktacular Charm Packs so I can make another Halloween patchwork skirt for my etsy store.
Speaking of Etsy store... I have had 5 sales since I started selling this year.. Its not much, but its a start and it lets me know i must be doing SOMETHING right !!
This was my class project..
I'm also making it in black spiderweb fabric with spiderweb buttons..that will be finished up soon. I need to learn to do buttons this week !
My husband parked his new "project truck" (92 chevy) under a tree last week and the rain storms knocked a dead tree limb out of the tree onto his windsheild. $185.00 LESSON LEARNED, don't park your vehicle under a tree. The truck can't be driven to a salvage yard to get a cheaper windsheild due to the busted out window so we have to pay EXTRA for someone to come to the house :(
