This past weekend was one of the most wonderful weekends for me. I went to visit my sister in Columbus, OH again. I was working on bags for a month so I could take them to a very cute store in Clintonville called SoBo Style.

It is such a pleasure to go into that store. They have all kinds of wonderful must haves for your home, children, and yourself. There is black cabinet that I have my eye on. Next time I go down, I am bringing my husband in to see it. I just need to find the perfect place in my house for it.

I now have 6 bags that will be in the store sometime next week. I can not tell you how excited I am that my bags are going to be in this store.

Question: Who loves owls?? I do. I do.

Katie Palmer, store owner of SoBo Style recommended me to go to a great little fabric shoppe up the street called Sew to Speak, 4610 N. High St, Columbus OH. Her logo is an it!! Have I told you I have a thing for owl's? The owner Anita Bowman was in and she helped me to pick out a lovely Amy Butler pattern for a skirt. This is my newest adventure. I am actually going to try to tackle a garment piece. I have not done that since the 9th grade at boarding school. The pattern is the Barcelona Skirt. The fabric is Lotus Lime/Tree Peony. This fabric will be the holy grail for me. I will only use it when I have made a few skirts that actually fit correctly.

Last week I made a skirt from this pattern. Oh my.........dreadful on me. I looked like a cow. I need something a little more structured in the tummy area. But dont you think that is a great idea? So I am going to try the Amy Butler a-line Barcelona skirt instead. I have so many cute fabrics to make them with.

My sister signed up for a sewing class too. I may have a helper in my future. Anita (I said Amy at first if you read this blog a couple of days ago......must have had Amy Butler on the brain) Bowman will also do tutoring one on one. I am considering teaching a class on how to make my Mrs. Darcy or Camilla bag. Would any of you be interested in coming to a class? I could have a trial run at my house. Let me know what you think. Ta Ta for now.
