One of my favorite things about the expo is the shopping, of course. Here are a few key purchases:
Haberman Fabrics, and some bright green basket weave wool from The Wool House to make a blouse and pencil skirt. And then I found the perfect vintage green buttons for the blouse!
In fact, I found lots of great vintage buttons! Most are from Nifty Thrifty Dry Goods.
I stocked up on my favorite pins: Clotilde glass head pins in red and white. Also: adhesive thimbles!
An expo must: purchasing fusible stay tape from Emma Seabrooke.
I went momentarily insane and bought 4 yards of sparkly pink ruffled mesh.
What can I say? It spoke to me.
Also potentially insane? This quilting cotton.
Anyway, it's great to be back and working on my book again. Henry has been following me around since I got home--I think he missed me!
