As you know I was in LA last week attending a super fun fabric shopping weekend. A few sewing bloggers and got together for a wonderful fabric shopping weekend. I’ll be sharing more of my fabric spoils, my favorite places to shop for fabric in LA and and awesome giveaway later this week but we closed out the weekend with a wonderful Girls Night Out hosted by Jessica of The Sewing Rabbit.

As with all her GNO’s Jess made up some awesome totes and filled them full of goodies from an amazing assortment of sponsors. We each got a bunch of fabric from Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores, awesome interfacing from Pellon, Michael Miller Fabrics gave us all fabric from their newly released Violet Craft line, there were also the cutest thread spools lined on ribbon and samples of Phoomph from Coats and Clark, a whole charm pack from Dear Stella Design, and 5 great patterns were from McCalls. See loads and loads of pictures from the La Girls Night Out at Jessica’s and also check out her Girl’s Night Out Giveaway that has 11 awesome prizes perfect for crafty girls.
In other news, I finished reading Eat to Live which preaches a diet high in plant based foods so while I’m not interested in following the plan to a tee (basically vegan-ism with 1-2 servings of animal based food a week) I am feeling very convicted to get more vegetables into our diet. If you’re interested in healthy eating or losing weight it is a very interesting read. So here goes.
On the menu for this week…
|Day||Main Meal||Goals (Veggies, Whole Grain, Fish)|
|Sunday||Asparagus and Wild Rice Soup||Grains and nuts: pasta
Veggies: Zuccs, Salad
|Tuesday||Chicken Cauliflower and Cheese Sauce|
|Thursday||Hamburgers and Grilled Zucchini|
|Friday||Pizza and Salad|

I was so jealous when I saw you in some of Jess’s pictures. I was one of those who missed the site’s change of address, and had no idea you were going to LA/GNO. Looks like you guys had an awesome time, and I know you probably picked up some amazing fabric!
