Pattern sale & another nice surprise.

I made it to the Joann's Fabric sale. They had Vogue patterns on sale for 3.99, the average regular price was 25.00. I found all but one of the patterns I wanted. I wasn't there to purchase fabric but as I was peeking through the aisles a satin brocade fabric caught my eye. I began to wonder were I had seen this fabric before. Then it came to me - my husband just brought a new red shirt & matching tie. Take a look at the similarity. It's not an exact match but it is close enough. Maybe I can make an accessory for myself. Take a look.

Now, back to sewing.

I haven't sewn anything for myself for a while. I got discouraged because I didn't know how to upload pics. But, I have got that down to a science now. Anyhow Joann Fabrics has a sale on Vogue Patterns tomorrow. I have a few Sandra B Patterns I want to pick up. I hope they have the patterns I want.

I want to learn how to follow other blogs. Those of you who have sewing blogs - trust me I enjoy viewing your blogs. You are my inspiration. I just want to be able to list them on my blog. If anyone can help please feel free to email me.

Circle of Sisters in NYC Part 2

I also got to meet & talk with Chef Jeff , his life is a testimony of what preservence, determination & hard work will take you. His life story is truly inspirational. He has a show on the Food Network - the Chef Jeff Project. He made a shrimp dish & cornbread. Unfortunatley I could taste it becasue I am allergic to shell fish, but everyone said it was very tasty.

Circle of Sisters in NYC

I haven't been blogging lately- mainly I have been following other blogs. So let me catch up. My daughter & I went to an event here in NYC called "Circle of Sisters". The event in basically to cater to the needs of the total woman. It covered health & wellness issues as well as the normal hair care , make-up, etc. I went to a workshop entitled "Raising Families" , it was very good. Rev. Run & his wife Justine were on the panel. Later that evening there was a concert with Regina Bell, Jennifer Hudson, Lyfe Jennings & others.

It was a fun - "Girls Day Out"

I also got to meet to very special people. The Next Food Network Star winner Aaron McCargo Jr. aka "Big Daddy". He made a parfait which looked delicious. I got a chance to taste the topping which was made with coconut & orange zest. It was very tasty. His personality is so very endearing, he really is down to earth.
