Back to Sewing

Does anyone else subscribe to swatch services?  I've gotten swatches from Gorgeous Fabrics, Emmaonesock, and Sawyer Brook (and, no, this isn't an ad!  No affiliation, etc.).  It is exciting to be able to see the real fabrics rather than the view on the computer screen...and to be able to touch them!  It is equally exciting to have other choices available rather than the rapidly deteriorating big box fabric/craft store.  I won't even go into what dh calls it!  But he is right--it is a scary place.

Anyway, I have been enjoying getting regular swatches via Sawyer Brook (sure beats the bills and junk you usually get in the mail).  The most recent mailing has some very appealing fabrics and I think I might finally spend some of my Christmas money!  Loved the turquoise grouping--a floral or two and this neat woven silk with a ribbed texture.  Don't know what I'd do with any of it, but it's fun to look and plan!

Now, back to cupcakes!  I have to sew more Cupcake Pincushions as samples for the class next month.
