That's 20.25 yards out this month!

2 cardigans
1 dress
3 tops
2 pants
1 skirt
2 gifts

Favorite: Has to be my black V9032 pants. That fabric is divine and I wish I had MORE of it.

Biggest accomplishment: my jeans! Of course!! I am waiting (IMPATIENTLY!) on the PR jeans contest to sew another pair.

Fail: Miraculously; I have no wadders this month! Let us cheer!! If I had to choose a fail, I'd choose the french terry cardigan. The fabric is like, scrumptious but it isn't as awesome as I pictured it in my head. I'm still trying to figure out how I can make it better.

Because 1) I hate picture-less posts (idk why) and 2) I may have gone fabric shopping...Here are a couple of pics of things I'm excited to get my grubby little paws on
