I have received some blog awards lately for which I've been very tacky and not properly bestowed my thanks. Some while I was on vacation so don't hate me too much. You don't, do you?
Many thanks to BConky and Gail for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award, to Cenetta and Mz. Choize for the Blogger Buddy Award, and my lovely sister Texas Belle (not her real name) for the Butterfly Award.
Wondering what I bought at JoAnn's 60% off sale yesterday? Drumroll, please...
And... that's it. Oh my gosh, everything was so picked over! Gone were all the lovely cotton eyelets I've been ogling, the printed linens, the stretch sateens. Now I haven't been there for a good month, but usually there's one or two colors/prints left over. Nada. So I came home with only this floral charmeuse. I'm thinking maybe this BWOF blouse from the August '08 issue:
Or possibly a simple bias skirt. I have lots of tops to match those colors. I did buy some thread and interfacing. And by the way, my super JoAnn's is so popular, they give out numbers at the cutting tables. The wait has gotten so long that I take my number when I walk in the door, then do my shopping. 30 Minutes later when they finally call it, I've picked out my fabric and am ready to have it cut.
