Oops!  I visited Ann’s Gorgeous Fabrics online fabric store and accidentally bought some gorgeous knits.   She’s having an awesome sale right now.  Do you wanna see some pictures of what I bought???  You don’t have to twist my arm.  Here they are…

Aren’t they pretty?!  I bought 3 yards of the purple print for a top and 5 yards of the aqua/brown print for a dress.  I also bought some plain black jersey, but you don’t need a picture of a black square, do you?  I’ll use it for binding or as an accent fabric depending on the patterns.  I have tons of patterns that will work with this fabric.  Ooooh I can’t wait to receive them!!! 

I also bought some fabric and stretch lace trim for another project.  I’ve been inspired by Dawn of Two on Two Off and Sigrid of Sigrid – Sewing Projects and their lingerie sewing.  Sigrid even started a sewalong on PatternReview.  I am in dire need of some new undergarments (tmi?), and they make it sound so easy.  So I am going to try my hand at it sometime soon.  I bought a purple knit and black and white lace trims.  When I receive them, I’ll take some pics. 

While it doesn’t look like I’ll get my top done in time for the Spring Top sewalong, I will work on it tonight some more.  I am really getting excited about my new Emerald 183 and can’t wait to use it again.

Anyway, happy sewing everyone!
