Surprises for me!

I love getting mail.  Especially sewing mail.

surpriseYesterday I had not one, but two notices in my mailbox that I’d missed a package delivery.  Yay!  Today I picked up my treasures.  The first is a set of clamp-on hooks and eyes from Sew True Supply.  I’m sure I could have hunted these things down in the fashion district, but I honestly couldn’t be bothered wandering from store to store downtown.  This city needs the perfect one-stop-notions-shopping superstore, because it’s tedious buying invisible zippers from one place only to have to walk down the street 6 blocks to get that perfect interfacing that can’t be found anywhere else at a decent price.

clamp hooks eyesI’m looking forward to using these little darlings on my skirts and pants.  I always like the look of the RTW hooks and eyes versus the hand-done sew-in ones.

And the other little treat?  My latest order from EmmaOneSock.com.

Now let’s pray that I can actually get these things sewn up.  I’m always adding projects to my list and never getting around to starting them.  Smile

  1. I love your fabric choices. It makes me want to rush over to Emma One Sock! But I shall resist and keep sewing my own stash. Can’t wait to see what you make.
