lookie what i got


The mailman was very generous today, delivering this gorgeous silk velvet fabric I purchased on e-bay as well as the two books I ordered last week from amazon.com. Red letter day at my house! Now all I have to do is decide how to use the fabric, it being one of those things I fell in love with and bought without having any clear idea of what to do with it. It's about 2/3 yard of gorgeousness.
My kids go back to school later this week. This summer has absolutely flown past, faster than any I remember. I'm not sure why, maybe we just had more going on this year than usual, getting Dave's new office set up and our little trips here and there. Anyway, it's nearly over. Fees have been paid, supplies have been purchased, and we're just about ready. This is Christopher's senior year in high school, so we need to get him on the docket for senior pictures, something he cares absolutely nothing about. Oh well, at least he won't be one of those kids (mostly girls) who have to have 15 changes of clothing and a bunch of exotic backgrounds. We'll be doing good to get two shots, one formal, one casual. The family will have to be satisfied with that. The upside is it won't be as expensive without a bunch of fancy stuff thrown in.
Hope you're all having a good start to the week.

School starts early where you are :) I can remember very clearly going in for my senior picture - hard to believe it was over 20 years ago.

Good luck with getting everything sorted for 'back to school'. The summer really does fly!

Our kids still have two weeks to go after this week. I could have done those senior pics for you if we were closer. Your fabric is lovely.

I like your fabric! I do that - buy fabric with no real idea what to do with it. But sometimes, after you've hoarded it for a bit, it turns out to be just what you need for something. So I say, always buy it!! xx
Penny was just moaning as we go back to school on 3rd September. She says it's 'practically next week!'. I did explain! But to be fair to her, we did only get five and a half weeks this year. But I'll tell her you're back so soon and she'll feel better! (And that'll help your boys, too!!) xx

Gorgeous gorgeous fabric Susan! And I look forward to seeing what you create with it. Just noticed the blog header change too (very nice but I loved the old one and don't think I would have ever got tired of it!!)
