Hello...I have been a tad under the weather this past week. I am sharing this, as I feel the need to confess that I have been playing with my FunTown book backdrops...houses, shops and other necessities of FunTown life... instead of sewing...which I should be doing. I get easily distracted...similar to a sparky four-year-old. But alas, the time has come to resume my life. Making silly toys. Before I do...would you like to peek at my distraction?
Let's get back to the theme of this post...
It is difficult to see all of the treasures in this snapshot. Trust me...it is delightful. While in Tokyo, there was this little shop within the department store, Seibu, where I conducted my classes. Strangely enough, it was a Parisian store. LaDroguerie. It was like a day at the circus for me. Fabric, buttons, ribbons, trims and fanciful beads. I had myself quite a time there. It wasn't until I was safely tucked away in my hotel room...when I looked at my receipt. According to my calculations...It appeared as though I had spent $17,000...I am exaggerating, of course, but let's just say that the Yen was stronger than the dollar that week.. Oh well... I will make some very special toys with all of my Frenchy Finds.
Now, if that wasn't bad enough...I went to a charming quilt fabric store in Naperville, Illinois while visiting my Mother. the store is A Pieceful Heart. As you can once again see...I enjoyed myself. Thank goodness I don't take drugs as I would be in the gutter by now. The point of my lurid tale is...I am eager to jump back into my sewing room and play with my new "stuff."
It is time to change the subject for a fashion update...Today is Labor Day. Many of you think...a beach day, hot dogs, back-to-school supplies and no mail delivery. Do not fail to remember this important task. It is a time to place those white shoes in the back of the closet. Don't despair as I am sure that you have other footwear.
There are a few exceptions to the rule...Health Care Providers, Restaurant Servers and Roller Derby Contestants. Oh, I almost forgot about the tennis players...anyway...follow the rules and the world will be a better place, fashion-wise that is.
Have silly two-steppin' fun, Jody, the girl that has a Visa Bill with a French accent
