Coffee Buzz...

Today I was supposed to give a friend a sewing lesson. She had a baby a few weeks ago and to save her sanity and for my enjoyment we get together (with him) every Wednesday for lunch and something. A few weeks ago we checked out a new fabric store called Whipstitch. We saw some really cute fabric from the Coffee Buzz collection by Kathy Hall for Andover, the American (North and South) division of Makower, UK, ltd. Wouldn’t this fabric make really cute napkins?
Another project is born, this one for my friend to practice her cutting, pressing and hemming skills. We planned to work on them last week, but then she remembered an appointment, and it was Cinco de Mayo so there was a margarita with lunch, and then somehow it was just too late to get back to the studio.
So this week we decided that she would come straight to the house with lunch in tow and we would make them up. No problem. But the fabric still needed to be washed, and the baby was fussy, then hungry, then napping on mom’s chest in his cute little carrier. And we had so much to talk about over ice tea. So here we are again with the afternoon pleasurably spent but no sewing done. Next week for sure…
