Yesterday I had SO.MUCH.FUN! My mom (& I) are on Spring Break and we wanted to take a little road trip somewhere. I have to start looking for a dress for my sister's wedding, so we decided on Charlotte, NC instead of Charleston, SC due to the cold snap. We didn't have a specific agenda, but we had a few places that were a must!
Mary Jo's Cloth Store in Gastonia. This was seriously fabric Heaven. We got there just 45 minutes before closing, so I didn't have time to take pictures of the store, but it has been around for YEARS and YEARS and they seriously have EVERYTHING. It's seriously a mecca fabric store like a huge warehouse with any and all types of fabric and notions at GREAT and reasonable prices. I picked up some teal and navy seersucker for shorts, this coral sportswear that I couldn't live without and as always, ikat steals my heart. I have plans for some summer shorts for myself out of these babies. And yes, I kind of broke my "No new fabrics, until I've used up more of my stash rule!" You won't tell will you?
My design side of my mind went crazy yesterday.... can you tell!? Also, I'm even more ready to sew with the fabrics that Ikea sent me a few weeks ago... it's on my to-do list! Whew!
