stocking up

connecting threads had a clearance sale so i picked up a few of my favorites. they're all yards or half yards. i got a couple of new quilting books so hopefully these fabrics will come in handy soon. i also bought a bright thread set so i can quilt in colors other than black, white, or grey now.

Miscellaneous. i really like the floral on the right and i kind of want to save it to make a skirt.

in other news, i need new work pants desperately. i've been exercising more lately and i have a tendency to get bulky thighs. and man are they ever. most of my pants don't really fit anymore--embarrassingly sad but true. i'm hoping this weekend to bust out vogue 1051 and at least do a muslin. Cupcake Goddess is doing a trouser sewalong so maybe i can pick up some helpful tips.
