We love to shop together even when we’re miles apart; we chat on the phone while we shop, and swap pictures. It holds us together until we get a chance to do it in person.

Which really makes me happy with this project. My daughter reminded me that having fabrics that really appeal make you much more enthusiastic to finish a project.

There is no change in the closet as this weeks purchases are still on the cutting table. This could be cheating.
