I went Saturday to Hancock's and was pleasantly surprised to see all the .99 cent remnants. Just take a lookey look at the great little bundles of sweetness.

Can't you imagine the endless possibilities with this sweet white organza with the tiny pink bows and an oh so sweet little pearl bead in the center.And the softest of soft white lace; just wish there were oodles more of this stuff.

How about this large piece of fabric with the dragaonfly wings. I can see it on a journal.

Burlap..........always a need for some good burlap.

But the thing I'm lovin is this panel ........ I know you've seen these things where the project is printed and you just snip and sew. Well this is a book. A cloth book of prayers to be perhaps as a great baby gift or a gift for a wee tot just beginning to learn her prayers. Oh I am gonna have fun here. I cut it out yesterday and will show you when I finish it.

And lookey look at the ribbons. As my Mom used to say "heavens save us miz davis," have you ever seen so many that came from three little baggies. Yep .99 each.

But You remember the white satin pearls I am making for my Boston trip? Well I have been working on them and already have 24 made of which I only needed 82. So I'll get it in gear on that one soon. Buuuuuuut I wanted something else to accessorize with the pearls and I've seen these cute lacy hats popping up everywhere so decided to try my hand at an original mizmollye version.

I started with this at 5.00 from Walgreen

and after much hot glue ended up with this.

Already had the glue sticks and the lace so not a bad investment and I sewed little combs on the insides so it can stay on better.

I want to wear them with this dress and jacket.

Whatcha think?
