A New Cabinet And Fabric Finds

My girls were at the JCPenney outlet and saw a cabinet cheap that they thought I may want for my sewing room. Since I am STILL waiting, a year later, for the nice big one my husband is making (it's 1/2 done), I said yes! They picked it up for me and it was waiting when I arrived in Phoenix for Thanksgiving.

It's nothing fancy and the color is much nicer than it looks in the photo. I wanted it for my precuts. I love it and it was cheap! Thanks girls for thinking of me :)


Of course my Art Gallery had to have their place along with my cute pigeon fabrics my friend Moira gave me. I'm sure there will be lots of arranging and re arranging because I have more to fit in here :) It's nice to have a place for some things, as my shelf was over filled and things were constantly falling off of it.

I have mentioned my love of SAS Fabric store in Phoenix before. At 3.99 a yard, it's so hard to not buy tons! They have so much to pick from. I got a quick trip in this time and found a few things I needed. I have been wanting the blue colorway of Modern Meadow and I was soooo happy when I spotted a piece, then 3 more! The fabric is all different size pieces and in big piles.You have to dig a bit and if I'd had more time I'm sure there were more of the prints hiding someplace. I am thankful to have found the 4 that I did. I left with 5.91 yards and it was only 23.60 plus tax. For designer prints, you just can't beat the prices. Next time I'm going to plan better and stay longer!

My 6 year old grand daughter said, "You're the best Grandma ever because you can sew. Well, other ones can too...but you're the best one." It made me so happy and other than being able to see all 5 little girls, it was the highlight of my trip :)
