Friends and Fabrics…

There is nothing better than spending a day with friends, but spending the day fabric shopping with friends makes the time that much sweeter. On Sunday, Lissa, from a Fair Prospect, invited Connie, Angel, Tara, and me to the Fabric Expo in Washington. Sadly, Tara wasn’t able to join us, hopefully next year, we sure did miss her. Anyway, Connie, Angel, and I left my house at 7:30 Sunday morning and made our way up to fabric heaven. Talk about a fun trip. We met Lissa at the Expo and happily spent our allowance monies on some awesome finds. The highlight of the day was finding some incredible laces that are hard to come by. Anyway, we had a lovely time, and we hope to go again next year. Here are some pictures of my finds.

I fell in love with this print. I think it’s going to become this lovely dress…

Can one have too many buckles? I think not.

This gorgeous lace was a steal and I can’t wait to use it. It’s about 6” wide and is also 100% cotton.

Have a wonderful rest of you week. God Bless!!!

Love Lauren

Love the pogey bait! That lace is really, really lovely - it's so hard to find acceptable laces!

I am so banned from fabric shopping for forever though :-(

I adore the bluish green print! It reminds me of a gorgeous crossover bodice dress from the 1996 Emma. Hmmmmm, I'm inspired!
