First, Monday was my birthday. To mark the occasion I had lunch on Sunday at Applebee's with my family where I received some awesome kitchen goodies, some vintage hand sewing needles in picture perfect sleeves, a gift card to Joann's, and some birthday money. Since gift cards seem to erupt into spontaneous combustion in my pocket, thus burning a hole in it, I set out to Joann's on Monday. I walked around the store no less than fifty seven times deciding what I was going to spend my precious gift card on. Then, like a predator spotting it's prey, I spied the scissor section. "Hmm, my scissors are really dull and I could use a new pair" I thought to myself as I punted little old ladies out of way to get to the scissors. So, to wrap the story up, I bought myself my first real pair of "grownup" Gingher dressmakers shears!
I came home with my scissors and then this happened.
Here are the patterns that I am making.

Now, on the estate sales/thrifting front, I have a few newly acquired items to show you.I will spare you a picture of yet more zippers, which are drying on a bath towel after I gave them a bath. (They stank of musty basement, but now smell mountain fresh.)
|Thrifted fabric $1.50. I think there is about 3 yards.|

|Thrifted curtain which will be an apron. (I have two of them.) $2.50|

Stay tuned for my first ever post of others inspiring blog posts and for the above items to slowly start becoming finished objects.
