Edgar is letting Lucy have her way with him. She's nipping his neck.
Yesterday, I planned all my errands with the hope that time and proximity would allow me a visit to Discount Fabrics. The last two stops were the library and the post office; I checked my watch, and yes, I had time!
I picked up a few sample cuts, but didn't buy any fabric. Then I began looking at the trims, some of which were as much as $17 and $25 a yard...the fabric is definitely discounted, but the trims are not. The ones I was interested in were in the $7-8 dollar range for the most part. I decided on a couple and went to have some 1/2 yard cuts because I thought they'd be good for doll clothing.
The lady at the cutting table asked if I'd looked at the remnants. Duh! No, I hadn't. She showed me all these little plastic bags of remnants, and I quickly chose several that I couldn't have afforded otherwise. Little bags of very short cuts (all I'd really need) for $1-5. The ones I liked best were $3 or less, and several were only $1!
My tattoo man has refused 3 (THREE!) skirts that I've made for him. We are going to have another little discussion today. I'm not sure he realizes that when I made him, I didn't intend for his body to show--truthfully, I'm not sure he realizes I made him.
He is right about the skirts, though; none of them suited him, but we really need to figure out an attire we can both agree on.
Speaking of wardrobes, I definitely need to get some summer apparel. My summer things are fine for the house, but not so good for getting out. I need some nice casual things without any paint on them!
