No problem. Place the order for the Amy Butler. She will add it to my order and refund my shipping that I will get charged; she doesn't store credit card info, so it has to be placed as a separate order. And voilà! Not only did I snag that Water Fall; I also saw the Crossroads and couldn't let the mere 3/4 yard left languish behind, no. She put everything in one envelope and refunded my second shipping charge. THAT is service. And fast delivery, wow! Bella and I could be petting our new acquisition in a couple of days. We like that.

For my friends and family who follow this blog to keep tabs on what I'm up to.
Didn't get as much sewing done over the past couple of days because of beach time and yoga and dogwalks. Here are a couple of pictures that just do not do Mother Nature justice. Nor happy doggies' joy at paddling in the clear waters of the Sarasota Harbor on a hot sunny day.

|They bring up that same choked-up, it's-so-stunningly-beautiful emotion I get at gorgeous new fabric. Like little puckered up faces! And then bursting open, trumpeting their glory, ahhh! They didn't smell, at least not that I noticed.|
