Why does Mr. Diva™ always get the burning desire to invite company over for Sunday Dinner when the house is trashed? Did I mention Mr. Diva™ goes bowling Sunday morning until 1pm? How convenient.
Seems I’ve been slacking off (what’s new? LOL) and had yet to put away the Christmas decorations.
So the mad rush was pretty successful…except for that honkin’ big green thing in the middle of my living room.
In my defense, I tried to disassemble the pre-lit tree three times…I’m just not strong enough. So it will sit there until Mr. Diva™ can no longer bear to hear my nagging–that, or perhaps my strong cleaning lady will come to my rescue.
But as payback, I offered all my guests the above beautiful chocolate confections after dinner. HAHA…they’re fake (one of my painted ceramic creations)…and they fall for it EVERY YEAR…duh!
New Fabric Finds
Moving on…how about a Sneak Peek of Michael Miller’s New Fabrics? Here’s my favorite:
and some more new Michael Miller fabrics:
I am so jonesing to see this full collection at Michael Miller as it just might work for my new boys line (if it doesn’t have pink in it–I just don’t do pink for boys…sorry):
While perusing the web, I came across the New Arrivals from Repro Depot Fabrics:
Love these, but unfortunately, I can’t pay $18 a yard (plus shipping) for these awesome Japanese Imports. I’d never make any money…LOL
But I did find these there at a much more reasonable price:
Modern Flora Collection…LOVE IT!!!! J. Caroline will have it available within the next two weeks.
I also visited the Robert Kaufman website to see if there was anything new and spotted these:
This yummy Michal Sparks fabric is available February (ummm…isn’t that cutting it close? I mean, Valentine’s Day is February 14th, right?).
Hot Couturier in Mint
Carnaby Street Turquoise for Project Runway
Just Another Manic Monday
Off to the gym I go—oh, how I HATE EXERCISING. Nothing is more unenjoyable to me…mindless, stupid activity, if you ask me. I just can’t wrap my head around how others get off on this crap. I could think of 100 other things I could do with my time if my butt wasn’t expanding.
And to make my day even better, those rugrats are home from school today…
Hope everyone’s day is off to a great start!
P.S. – I’d update you all tomorrow on the awesome sewing manufacturing workshop I took this past Saturday in NYC!
