Shopping Spree!

Woo-hoo, what fun! Liza and I went shopping yesterday and look at my goodies...this black boucle coat with the frilly, loopy collar will be fun, I think. I don't have anything this frivolous in my wardrobe, so I'm feeling quite adventurous! Liza and I liked this green tencel blouse with the shirred sleeves so much, that we each bought one. Since she lives in the Sierra Foothills and I'm in the SF Bay Area or Australia, I doubt we'll wear it at the same functions...
And isn't this wide-wale corduroy jacket with horn buttons cute? I think I'll take it to Australia with me...it just looks like country to me. Imagine it over a turtleneck, with jeans and boots.
Anyway, we had an incredibly fun day of shopping. Also bought three fun pairs of socks, and a neat bracelet that has magnets in it, so you don't need a clasp...just wrap it around your wrist a few times. Forgot to take a pic of that...maybe tomorrow?

Almost makes up for not having a sewing machine and fabric here...almost.

You did find some great clothes. I can see you wandering around Australia in the jacket.

Hi Dianne -- I'm in Oakland, too (more or less permanently!) and my sister moved to OZ a few years Hobart, not Sydney. Great shopping spree you had, and I love your bookshelf quilts -- I need to make one of those for a library friend.
