From the sewing room in pix... OR... No builder beige found here!

My fabric arrived and, turns out, I only got 1 yard of the turquoise which is not enough to do a two piece suit. And the print is only 1 yard, too. So tomorrow I'm going back to the outdoor fabric store I went to on Monday and I'll pick up some of their fabulous neon/lime green. I'm not quite sure yet how I will work it all out... print/blue top with blue/green bottom? Maybe?

Here's what the print and the blue look like:

Also in today are two more rather noisy prints. They are going to make fabulous suits.

And, if that's not enough to wake you up, how about this one:

And that may well be the end of the swim suit run. Even <i>I</i> have a limit to how many suits is really too many and I think I'm probably going to hit that about 1 or 2 suits before I finish with the fabric on hand!!  But it really is such fun to swim in suits that feel good and aren't boring looking.

I'm not sure what this was supposed to be. I picked it up at Goodwill. The fabric is cotton and in great shape. 3 different prints. It's going to be reborn into my next bag.

And, finally my giant sized coup... I found a bag of thread. Very good thread. I could tell what the make was while I was there but not much else. When I got home I discovered that it was more than 80 spools of very top quality sewing thread in all kinds of colors. About $200 worth much of it still wrapped in cellophane. I paid $9.99.
