You know it’ll be a good weekend when…Posted: March 7, 2011
you grab all this out of the dollar cart at the grocery store on a Saturday morning. $10 total for six Rubbermaid containers that match our containers AND eight cloth napkins! Aaron told me to go back and get the rest of the Rubbermaid, and in the time I walked a total of 10 feet (five each way), it was all gone.
All week long I was looking forward to the coupon sale at Joann’s. I actually figured out what I needed and wrote it on the circular
since I always lose the list when I write it separately. I knew it was going to be crazy with the sale, and I had a gift certificate to spend from my birthday.
Such as this pattern ($1.99) that was screaming to me, “SHERRIE! Look over here!”, and this mod fabric in a lovely gray and yellow (40% off) that will be made into look A (blue) before summer.
And this lovely summer fabric (40% off) yearning for look B (green) ($1.99 as well). Also, those pants? Hello! I’ve never made pants before…
And this romantic fabric begs for a 30% off skirt for summer. The leaves beg for a tank at $2.49/yard!
Remnants were 50% off, and I’ve been wanting to try some knits for Mila. I see a cute tank dress in her future…
Another tank dress along with some cute matching yellow pants…
The pattern instructions look easy to follow which is good because I want this tunic asap! Unlike the mod dress pattern above, these sleeves will cover my postpartum arms.
And the jackets in here! Blazer-type jackets, winter coats, mod jackets, good grief! The possibilities are endless!
Thanks for the gift certificate mom!
Can you come watch this baby so I can get some sewing done?
