Lights all aglow
December 09, 2008
Just another thing that making me feel festive: I love twinkly lights and Christmas trees.
Help! I'm looking for some silk charmeuse - about a half yard or so. Does anyone have a good internet source? Or one that I can call and mail order? Or any on hand that they would be willing to send me? Any shade of blue, green, pink, or red would work. Even black or gray. I need it kind of quick - by Monday at the latest. I'd be happy to do a swap or pay. Thanks.
I love the lights too. :)

I love twinkly lights too. And the smell of christmas trees. I used to hate Christmas, but lately, I've been liking it alot more. But I've always loved twinkly lights.
I hope you find your fabric!

Silk Baron out of LA http://www.silkbaron.com/silk/purchase/purchase.html
I ordered beautiful dupioni from him to make flowergirl dresses for my girls from him - great service, tons of colors to choose from, and a much better price that I could find in Iowa. Only you'll need to buy it by the yard I think. The site says to e-mail and he takes paypal, but I called anyway and he shipped right away.
You can sorta see the dresses on my blog - there will be better close-ups at Christmas! I love sewing silk... http://3bloominghearts.blogspot.com/2008/11/wedding-in-new-york.html
