Ma’am, step away from the blue…

I feel like Britney Spears (in her ‘oops I did it again’ era).  I’m about the summon the fashion police the next time I’m out searching for fabric, yarn, new kicks…



Yep.  more blue-y teal.

For this:



This is going to be a stretch.  It’s labeled “intermediate!” I’ve never sewn with anything heavier than a cotton, nor with anything as slick as taffeta (the blue).  But, I’m a sucker for herringbone. I even own a pair of these.

(yes, those are my new kicks, the wave sayonara with yellow and, of course, blue)

But, back to the cape. I think I’m most excited about this because it will necessitate a visit to TENDER BUTTONS! (do yourselves a favor and on the website, click the bottom right “tour our store” button. you will not be sorry.)

All in all a fantabulous day–an early morning 12 mile run, hitting my paces with the last 5 miles being even better than the first–and then my amazing fabric finds (oh, and the best part of this–$21 for both the herringbone wool and taffeta! Gotta love seedy NJ fabric warehouses).
