This is what 686 zippers looks like. How do I know that? I counted. Every. Single. Last. One. Of. 
Them. The ladies (and gent) at the shop know all about me, and are always super accommodating. 

Why all the zipper hoarding? It's been at least 4 months since the last big zipper binge. Between the holiday season, and some other private orders, my stash is down to less than 500. That just won't do! 

I somehow managed to show some restraint at the shop, knowing I'd be back this week to get more supplies for a new order. They have some of the most drool-worthy, pearlized metallic pastel colored leather (not terribly expensive). I have a feeling that I'll be coming home with a few hides next week.

Now Time Delegation, Spring 2013 edition

It has been years since I've posted a NTD. High time, high time ... and on the last day of winter, I present the spring version.

Spring; Cooking Light magazine; apt re-do; finally, finally finalizing this divorce; back to school (maybe???); figuring out the BIG TRIP; Waffles in the Kitchen; snoring cats; 'Kill Em All' vans; red, lots of red; dodgin' bullets; Paris & London; Discovery ID; Bio; This makes me laugh & reminds me of spring;

Spring Fabric Sneak Peek

I went a little nuts buying new prints for spring time. (whistling, eyes looking off to the side) Have some cool new ideas for WB spring & summer lines that require a larger scale print, as well as a bit of a deviation from my normal pattern selection.

Some of these I just loved (the owls & forest scene, on the left), some are restocks of prints that have almost sold out, some are different colorways of prints that I already have. And of course, some are so stinking cute, I could not resist! (Halloween owls, I'ma talking to you)

It is dreary, rainy, and hailing here. Uggh, do not want to leave to go to the store, but alas ....

New iPad sleeves ....

At the moment, these are a few of the ones I really, really, really like. 

Now to get motivated to photograph all these bad boys ...  They should be in the shop by the weekend.

I love the zebra fabric; I've been sitting on it for over 2 1/2 years, waiting for the right project before cutting into it. Not my normal sort of attraction, yet I found it so compelling. The white version of it will be listed in the future, as well. 

The birdie fabric is from 2007 or 2008, would have to dig thru all the old receipts to get the exact date on it. Another lovely modern Japanese import.  

Back to work ... should take some photos right now, as the light in here is conducive & my lads are sleeping.

Waffles in the Kitchen

I'm noticing that I'm turning into one of those folks taking pix & writing about the things I'm cooking lately. So ... with that, I've started a new blog: Waffles in the Kitchen.

Some of the vintage S&P's in the kitchen
I may get really wacky and post the recipes, along with the tweaking I've done of them. We'll see.

More vintage S&P's & sugar shakers

Happy Tuesday!!!!
