The best fabric I have bought recently has been fabric I bought at Walmart. I bought 4 2yd pieces and have used all four fabrics and have been very pleased. Contrast that experience with and the Pacific Fabric Outlet (up the street). Both of those latter places are very hit and miss. For my kind of sewing - casual wear - I want soft, stretchy, very washable and good colors - and I don't want to pay more than $10 a yard.  Doesn't seem too much to ask.

On the plus side, not having easy access to good fabric is probably a financial windfall for me.

As I was swimming today, I was thinking, I should just leave the gym and go right to Walmart and get more fabric. Fortunately, this was at the beginning of my swim and I got to my senses before the end. I have enough clothes. I have swimsuit fabric - if I need to sew clothes, I can make a swimsuit. Get a grip!

I did have a good swim - very few people at the gym, no one in the pool except me for most of my swim. But the real treat was the traffic or lack of it.  Traffic is letting me get to the pool about 30 minutes earlier these days which is excellent.

Last night's surprise chicken dinner was amazing. And fun. And delicious.

There is nothing on the docket for today. Dolls and maybe a swimsuit but dolls for sure and maybe a load of laundry.
