The Weekend Update
Had a busy, yet fun weekend. I went out of town this weekend to the city where I attended undergraduate school. Yesterday I spent the morning at the Scrap Exchange. What a fun place! Got two yards of beautiful fabric for only $4. I'm planning on making aprons from it. Got a couple of purse parts: handles, magnetic clasps, feet, linings for again chump change. I'm detaching those parts and using them for a bag I have to make for someone. While walking through the vendors on the way to the Scrap Exchange, I ran into my play cousin (we share the same aunt but on different sides so she isn't a cousin at all, but it feels like it so....). She's a fabulous crafter/quilter and I love running ideas past her. She gave me lots of pointers and when I left her, I immediately grabbed my journal so I could sketch ideas and make notes for the future. She and another crafter friend are hosting sewing classes this summer. Check out their summer website: Something Handmade.
