Where do I buy my fabric??

Do you know how often I hear this question??

I have a friend Carrie who owns a shop The Top Stitch.
I think I can say this is one of my ALL time favorite stores!!
Did I mention that she also is a Janome dealer??
Yes, Janome... I am in the process of saving for another {grin}
My back-up sewing machine I used before was my Moms...
so now {of course} I need to have a back-up...
The Top Stitch also offers classes.. that is where Mini takes her hand-stitching class!

Okay... what if I don't find what I am looking for there??
Hawthorne Threads
My all time FAVORITE online fabric store!
Fast shipping and great prices!!

So, after I purchase the fabrics from the store and I put an outfit together that I really like... I then will order a bolt of the fabric wholesale....
and with that comes many little outfits!
Did I mention I LOVE my job??

Here are a few of my favorites this season...

Spring is coming...

And I have proof!!
...At least it's coming here in The Pacific Northwest.
Spring is my absolute FAVORITE time of the year.
I am one of them people who likes winter, but only for like 1 week.
This weekend when Dad was home it was a 60 degree day and we headed out hiking.
It was an absolutely beautiful day!!!
Fancy thought the Catepillar was a little "sketchy".
I told her it was another sign that Spring is here!!!
Ike is my outdoor boy. He of course couldn't hold back his excitement of all the signs of Spring.
Me and my love who I miss already... he left so early today. Sniff.My baby is getting too big.
This is the first time we have hiked without carrying her in a backpack!
And she had so much fun!!!
She did need a couple of breaks, but Dad took care of her....
We cherish these weekends when Dad comes home!
The next time he comes home will be Spring break!!!
...And the end of the second quarter!!
woohoo!! That's only 2 weeks away!!
