When I was selling fabric I always carried everything from Jennifer Paganelli (because it's all perfect, it just is). Well, if you were a customer and bought some of the Loopy Vintage Floral from her Flower Power collection (it was a couple of years ago and is now out of print), you may want to check your stash. I knew something was up when I recieved a couple of emails from etsy shoppers looking for this fabric and when I was told they'd pay 80.00 a yard for it I really knew something was up. Check this out! A 20" piece recently sold on ebay for 145.00 (that is not a mis-print on my part)!
So if you need some sweet moolah right now you should start digging through all that fabric and see what you've got. Crazy. Here's a picture of all of the colors of the Loopy Vintage Floral to jog your memory. Good luck and go to it!
I saw this cool little trolley at IKEA and knew I wanted it but waited a bit. Then I saw all the cool kids were getting one and posting about them and I knew I'd better run back before everyone figured out how neato they were (and that color!). So now it's mine and I love it. I keep all my goodies that I like on hand and just wheel it around wherever I'm working. It reminds me of a phlebotomist's cart for some reason.
And here's what happens when you ask a guy for help filling a spool of thread. I needed a second spool of the new heavy duty thread Joey picked up for me because my new (used) industrial machine fills the bobbin from one spool (while I'm sewing, yes!) and uses the other spool for sewing. He found an empty serger thread spool and grabbed his power drill and there you have it. A second spool of heavy duty thread. A handy dude is good to have around the sewing room.
Now go check your stash for that fabric! Valentines Day is coming and you could buy an up-grade on your fancy dinner or something.
