Lemming # 427 Reporting for Duty

So, if you pay attention to sewing blogs, you may have noticed that one or two (or 50) sewers have been purchasing the Anna Sui silks from Fabric Mart. Someone figured out it would make a luxurious and beautiful lining and at $4.95/ yard, it's not much more expensive than the cheap poly lining from JoAnn's and the like. Well, add me to the list. I purchased a couple pieces myself along with some great jersey knits ($0.99 and $1.99 / yard!!) and a wool blend that will become a jumper very soon. [There is still some silk left if you're interested.]

And it is our turn for wintry weather. We have an inch or two on the ground and a little more to come. I'll be working at home today. I'm so thankful to have a job that has such flexibility! The view of my back yard at 6:30 this morning:

Gee Bonnie - I'm working from home today too! But I bet you get sewing time that I won't. Hope you are enjoying your holidays. Those fabrics looks luxurious! g

Silk is a great alternative for lining. It makes me want to sew something lined just to try it! It will probably have to wait until AC (after Christmas)

Wow that is a great price for silk.

We got the snow too. I am happy. It is so pretty.
