Gotta LOVE the competition between Fanny's Fabrics and Fabricland ... got a flyer in the mail that Fanny's was having a big sale this weekend and a phone message from Fabricland saying that so were they (must have found out about Fanny's' plans too late to get their own flyers out ***grin***)

Have acquired a reversible charcoal knit, which shimmers with turquoise, ruby, silver, and other colours, depending on how the light is hitting it ... this one is for the long-sleeved version of the Miyake twist-top. Also got four-and-a-bit metres (asked for four, but was end of bolt and, IMHO, silly and wasteful to trim a dozen centimetres off) of linen in a rich shade halfway between cranberry and rust. :-)))

Plus spare blades for regular rotary cutter, mini-rotary cutter, some spools of thread, buttons, etc. And McCall's 9233; I haven't made pants in ages and needed a good pattern ... some of the linen is earmarked for this.

Now all I have to do is figure out how to go without sleep WITHOUT adversely affecting my health, life or job, so that I can indulge in all this fun stuff!
