Friday Recap.

Cotton Laces.
Seeing as I’m on a self-imposed diet and can’t buy any new fabric, I turn to notions instead. I ordered some cotton laces on eBay. I already have dreamy ideas for them.

I didn’t think this was possible. But Teresa did it!

Hanna of Craftykin made me realize I don’t have a 2010 calendar. Considering I’m always losing track of what day it is, one would definitely be helpful. I really want this one but I’m trying to be frugal. Perhaps I should make my own calendar? What’s another item on a massive to-do list?

This being frugal this is hard because I very much so want this dress. It’s my colors, my cut, and it would be perfect for a spring party that’s in the works.

But instead I’ve joined in Sarah’s Pattern Challenge with the intention of making my own dress! (What’s a second addition to my to-do list!) I’ll be blogging about my goal next week.

In music news, I can’t get enough of Basia Bulat’s Heart of My Own right now. And I just found out the amazing Patty Griffin has a new album out. Off to preview it now!

Have a wonderful weekend. (We’re in for a lot of snow here in the East!)

    maybe you could use some of that fabric you got to make yourself a calendar like iheartlinen’s ( I just bought her book, I really want to make one of my own!

    I do feel the frugal pull–I want to make myself a shirt and don’t think I have enough fabric at home and I won’t be buying any. I do love that lace!

    I say GO for making your own calendar. I’ve been loving the little calendar/day book I made a few weeks ago and the little desk calendar I re-worked. I agree…what’s one more thing on the list? Oh yeah, unless the list is so long it doesn’t get made until 2011. Sigh.

    p.s. that dress is cute and I love the lace!
