Recently I ordered some fabrics for making some clothes for myself from ReproDepot, and I was smart this time and instead of just guessing on yardage, I actually got out the pattern I was planning to use and ordered the correct amount. And here is my next innovation I'm most proud of, I wrote a note to myself about which view I'm planning on sewing with which fabric and *put it with the pattern*.
So when my order arrived I wasn't confused
- as to who was sending me a gift of unknown yet beautiful fabric?
- or why the heck did I buy this?
- and hey there isn't enough to make curtains out of this!?
- you know, the buyers' amnesia that some of us of a certain age are quite used to dealing with thankyouverymuch....
Finally I found some really fun buttons for my sci-fi jacket that I'm plotting and planning. I have several very loud and annoying scifi/robot conversationals that all kinda sorta go together and needed special buttons. Aren't they fun?
