|infinity scarves for sale at the community yard sale|
Back in February I did a big fabric cleaning out and sold more than 100 yards of my beautiful knits, silks, woolens and linens to a young woman who saw them on craigslist for $50. She's a social worker in Baltimore (which automatically means hard work for little pay) and part time yoga instructor. I think she was happy with the variety and quality and I was happy to make a dent in my two home merged conglomeration. But as part of that fabric cleansing I found several of these silk or poly fabrics that I had planned for infinity scarves. I quickly stitched up three for myself and then was on a roll and kept sewing for a day. Last week I had only enough sewing time to stitch together the 2 inch turning seam. I'll see if I can sell these at our upcoming neighborhood yard sale in early May.

Then in mid-week I headed up to Pennsylvania for a book group discussion on one of my top 10 books of all time, "Unbroken" by Laura Hillenbrand. Since my girlfriend lives only moments from Fabric Mart I did stop by and indulge myself. I have a major project in mind for the next few weeks involving one of my Craftsy classes and I'll show you more soon. But geez, remind me that I do not need more fabric....just more sewing time.
Back from that trip and it was a hectic few days getting ready for my Downton Abbey tea for 10 ladies from my church on Saturday. I had so much fun at the tea that I don't have any people pictures but here are the two tables and the food display.

It certainly was not as elaborate as some of the parties I saw when I checked out Pinterest last week but the food was good and plentiful and so were the smiles and laughs. I will definitely offer it next year for our church auction and relax a little with some experience under my belt.
