Tracking the Wild Marfy

No wilder than usual, I assume, but I am sort of thrilled watching my Marfy catalog wend its way around the globe to get to me! (Isn't that silly?) I've never gotten a tracking thing for it before, but this time they sent a tracking number, and so I've been watching it start from Italy, go through Germany and now this afternoon, it's suddenly in Kentucky. It's supposed to be here Monday, and I do think they'll make it easily. Here's the chart so far.

After all this excitement, I just hope there are some really great things in it. I have very little doubt that there will be.

I went to JoAnn's to get some of the new Vogue patterns on Wednesday, and they only had one of them. So, I bought some fabric instead. A cafe-au-lait linen with cream embroidered polka dots that I'm going to use to make a pair of pants. I prewashed yesterday and laid out the pattern last night, but just couldn't make myself cut. It was late, so that was probably a good thing. Mistakes are made in the wee hours, and I wasn't going to get anything sewn afterwards anyway. One of the polka dots unraveled completely, but all the others appear to be unscathed, so I'm just avoiding that one.
It's really hot here today and was yesterday and is supposed to continue to be hot through Sunday, so maybe I'll get some good sewing time in.

Also, the Couture shows are on now for Fall 2007, so don't miss out!

Isn't that fun? I never got a tracking number from Marfy either until now. Mine just arrived in Cologne, although it is early tomorrow morning there already. I am supposed to get it Monday too.

I love that embroidered dot linen that Joanns has had in stock this summer. Glad to hear it washed up well. I've been back considering the black/white combo many times, but have so far refrained.

Do you have a subscription to the Marfy catalogue or do you buy it from the website?

I have bought it from the website so far, but am considering a subscription. Might as well, I guess. :)
