Then off to Sewing Sensations (just down the street from Fabricland and across the street from Fanny's Fabrics) because I'd decided I wanted to jazz up the magenta tie-dye a bit. This shop, because it markets to quilters and machine embroiderers, has a far wider selection of variegated sewing threads than the other fabric shops. So now have a spool of shiny blue/purple/fuschia stuff for top-stitching. :-) Also picked up the newest (to North America, anyway) issue of Australian Stitches there ... the cover story is (ATTENTION anotheranon!!!!!) a "road test" of Vogue 2556, an Issey Miyake design. (intriguing looking dress ... I may have to go pattern shopping).
Outside of all this fabric mania, got well into To Marry an English Lord, kindly loaned to me by anotheranon ... FASCINATING stuff and I plan to carry on reading as soon as I'm finished this post.
Oh, and a P.S. Something interesting spotted while flipping through Stitches to see what other yummy articles were in the issue. My Virtual Model is a site that lets you enter your measurements, etc. to create a virtual body model that can be used to see how a garment will look on you while e-shopping. A list of e-stores using the system is available onsite.
