Well, I just bought some fabric online. I ended up purchasing this:



For this pattern:



The fabric was just super cheap ($3 a yard!) and I had liked it since they sent me a swatch of it in the mail in the beginning of the summer. That Anna Sui pattern is one in my stash that I never made since it requires a lot of fabric (6 3/8 yards for 45" wide fabric!) Well, this fabric is 58" and that only needs 4 1/4 yards - so at $3 a yard, I can totally handle that. I get to make the dress, with a fabric I have had my eye on!

I also bought 3 matching challis floral prints for a vintage dress I will make for the PatternReview.com Vintage contest. I'm excited about that!

I was going to also buy fabric for my halloween costume, but Gina's birthday party is the same day as most halloween parties - so we might not even be dressing up for halloween. When it comes closer to the time, I will think more about that.

I was on the phone with Cynthia the other day telling her about my ideas for my garden party birthday party, and she says she's going to have a birthday party too! Her birthday is in October, so we were thinking of ideas for her - apple cider, squash, bobbing for apples, spiders, pin the tail on the black cat, etc. We were getting jealous of each other's ideas - I have croquet and lemonade and mint julep and she has hot cocoa and pumpkins and mums. It was a funny conversation, and I really hope that she goes through with it and holds her party as well! I'm excited for both of them!!

Oh! My mom bought me a webkinz lion today and I named him Jake. I really like the webkinz games online and I wanted my own account, and now I have one! I'm so thrilled!!

Thanks for reading and commenting! Let me know if you make up the 50s pattern - I'd love to see it!

I've only ordered once before from Fashion Fabrics Club and I was impressed, so I'm ordering again. Hopefully this time I will be as thrilled! :)

I have an animal. Before I bought my animal, I was playing on my mom's account. I liked it so much that she bought me a lion so I could have my own account to play. I don't really collect stuffed animals, but the lion is cute and I really wanted to be able to play!!!!
