My parents were in the Houston area last weekend visiting friends. They came by my house on Sunday afternoon for a visit. My mom loves, loves fabric. She was Home Economics major in college and taught Home Economics after college. I WISH I could sew they way she does.
My mom has tried to teach me how to sew. I can do a few things but I'm terrible. A couple of years ago I purchased some fabric and a dress pattern. I cut out the pattern at my house and brought it to San Antonio to sew. My mom and I worked on it together and finished it. It fit me perfect but too bad I picked a weird printed fabric. I thought the printed fabric would make a cute dress and it just didn't work. A sweet lady from my church was going to Haiti to volunteer and ask for some clothing donations. The first dress that I ever made is in Haiti... I just couldn't keep it.
Last year my mom and I went fabric shopping in Fredericksburg, TX. We ended up with these pieces for a dress that she made for me.

Sunday my mom wanted to shop at High Fashion Fabrics. I was not planning on buying anything; so of course I left with a bag of fabric! Luckily, it was small bag. We found this really cute Asian Child Print with coordinating fabrics. The plan is to someday make a quilt for my daughter. I told my mom she has about 7 years to work on it since I'm not even close to that point in my life. Boo Hoo! I usually don't buy things for the future. However, this fabric was so cute we were scared when we actually want it, it would no longer be available.
