Show and Tell – Part 2
So, wanna see the rest of my loot? Here are the notions I got from the Montero Sisters in Seaside, Oregon.
Aside from the obvious, I got a tailor’s ham and sleeve press. Yes, I didn’t have one of those, and the price was right.
Over in the bottom right notice the little bit of fabric I added in there. I really got this the next day after a deep, thought-provoking phone conversation with my fellow enabler, Gaylen. I mentioned to her about the beautiful buttercream silk that I saw that was regularly about $18 a yard and which I put back and didn’t purchase with the rest of the loot. She said, uh, Claire, just how much are you worth? Don’t you think that at $9 a yard for SILK to line your custom, perfectly fitted, one-of-a-kind, to-die-for jacket you are worth it? Okay, okay, SOLD.
And there were these cute buttons:
And this bead trim. It’s somewhat hard to see, sorry, but it’s a very, very pretty pink and green beaded trim that I’m going to put around the base of a lampshade for my sewing room.
The last little surprise that I got from Montero Sisters, which I’m tickled silly about, are these items that they used in the store to highlight fabrics. I got these for $15 each. I think they are the coolest thing for a sewing room.
The photo quality is poor as they are just leaning up against my wall. They are about 5 feet by 3.5 feet black melamine or some sort of laminated board. They aren’t too heavy, but I’m going to paint them a dark chocolate brown as my sewing loft is brown, pink and pear green. Then they have predrilled holes to hang them with, and I’m going to use short curtain rods to hang them.
And finally, Saturday morning, I got to walk on the beach and test out my new camera’s action setting and captured these random pups running around in circles on the beach. It was a beautiful morning.
Next, I’ll let you know what I’ve decided to sew up first. 🙂 Stay tuned, and sweet sewing dreams to you all.
