The plans of mice and men
PR Weekend recap so far:
Oh dear. Remember my bold plan? Yeah, me too. I remembered my plan while I was shopping, but unfortunately two things happened.
First, I was so overwhelmed by all the people at Mood, I couldn’t concentrate on my strategery. I left without buying a thing. Not one thing people?!?!? That’s where I planned to buy linen knits and glazed or metallic linen. And I couldn’t even think about it. Maybe I’ll go back there today?
Second, at all the other stores once I got my bearings again, I couldn’t find what I was looking for. At Paron’s, I did find a silk print. I know, I know. I wasn’t supposed to buy a print. But this was one was chosen for me. It was already sitting on the cutting table. Someone had put it there for me to find it. Obviously I couldn’t be rude and not buy it. Sheesh. How rude do you think I am? Don’t answer that. It’s a panel print. I bought two panels so I could make a pleated skirt, but now that I have it home, it’s kind of saying sheath dress to me. hmmm….
Then at Elliott Berman I saw this gorgeous fabric that seems a little linen-ish with a beautiful sheen to it and a Jacquard like floral woven into it. Black on black. I was looking for light linens. Black is not light. But again, I couldn’t refuse it once my eyes had seen it. I just couldn’t. That Chanel fabric just leapt into my arms practically. I was helpless.
Shopping was fine once I got into the groove of things. But now I have to go back to Mood. I really need that linen knit. NEED.
I’m not participating in the classroom activities today, but will go to the dinner tonight. Should be fun! The best part of a PR weekend is talking to all my sewing friends from around the states, Canada and even Australia. Wow! So cool.
P.S. Can you believe I only bought 2 fabrics???? I know. I can’t believe it either.
