Even on vacation

I can manage to find time to shop for fabric. Haha!

I'm currently visiting my mom in Chicago (which, combined with T being out-of-town for work last week, is also my excuse for the lack of output lately). I was hoping to get some knitting done while here, but it's looking like it may not happen since E has been quite the handful. But of course, I still managed to find a little time to check out a fabric shop today.

I actually noticed the shop last time I was here, but didn't get a chance to stop in, especially since like most mom-and-pop type places, they have odd/short hours. Anyways, this afternoon I was out with my mom and E had fallen asleep in the car, so I ran in for a quick lookaround. It's actually a quilting shop more than anything, but they did have a lot of really beautiful fabric. Not the cheapest either, but I decided to splurge and buy a few things anyway. I realized I never did try to make a pillowcase dress for E, and even though the season is kind of off, she could probably wear one with a long-sleeve shirt underneath for fall pictures.

I'll post pictures of my finds when I can, although I have to note that I'm having a lot of problems posting to blogger from my mom's computer.

I can't wait to see the fabric! I totally need to learn how to make a pillowcase dress. And I think you're would look adorable with a long sleeve shirt and even leggings underneath.
