Material Girls, May 22

Oh crap, more stuff!!

You recall my mention of the ASG sale a couple of weeks ago, right? The one where I purchased several lovely pieces of fabric and patterns? And was so proud of my restraint?

Well, today was ASG Fundraiser Part II, the Leftovers. The Prez brought all the fabrics, patterns, and books that didn't sell to our humble Neighborhood Group/Stitch n Bitch this afternoon. All free, before she took it away to Goodwill or the Salvation Army.

I think an OMG is in order here. I have 2 cartons of fabric, notions and patterns sitting in the trunk of my car. Included are Ultrasuede, wool, linen, velvet, corduroy, cotton, faux fur, zippers and Vogue designer patterns. Somehow I'll absorb all of this, but I don't think I'll be buying much anytime soon.

On the production side, I cut out a couple of TNT projects--another TSW Mixit Tank to coordinate with a RTW cardigan and a Loes Hinse Tango Skirt from Slinky. It doesn't come close to matching the input of new stuff, but at least something is on its way out of the Sewing Cave!

That's an awful lot to have to absorb but at that price I think I could find a place for it too. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it all.

Awwwwwwwwww I can't believe I missed this.

Anyway, I found your blog through patternreview, and I'm moving to ABQ soon, would love to meet the sewing community. I'd love it if you'd drop me an email or something. Thanks,
Sara
