Fabric Mart...

Fabric Mart, you evil temptress.
Unless you've been living under a rock, you've surely heard about the amazing sale they're having through August 20th. No? 50% off many fabrics, some of which are even *designer* fabrics?!

First Up: Maggy London Rayon Challis. In a clover print. Swoon.

Next Up: Cotton Voile in White, with Tangerine, Rose, Daffodil.

Probably my favorite of the bunch, a J. Crew heathered floral knit that I have been eyeing for aaaaaaaages. Isn't it just sweet!?

Last, but not least is this awesome Cotton Lawn. It's got a vintage feel in purple, lilacs, grays and olives.

I'm excited to work with all of these wonderful florals for fall! I've never been one to sew on trend, so I honestly have no idea what's being forecast as "hot" for fall wardrobes. I received the Cambie Dress pattern and I definitely see it being made up in one of these vintage feel florals. Not only is the fabric perfect for the office or cocktails with the ladies, but that particular pattern is as well.

I'm also working on a pair of pajama pants in a vintage (legitimately vintage, more on that when I post the finished product!) flannel cotton polka-dot print. Just need to hem and put the waistband in.
We're up for some actual summer weather soon, and I've been out and about so we'll see when it gets done. I am not going to put pressure on myself to sew, otherwise I start to feel guilty and nobody wins. 

Parting Shot:
Monkey puzzle tree!
This is a monkey puzzle tree, and is my very favorite tree. What, you don't have a favorite tree? I happened upon this one after going to a bicycle parts sale, and it always makes my day.

Happy Wednesday!
