Irish Tweed

Marcia, Marcia, Marcia, my cyber sewing friend, is a thrift store maven. On a recent foray to her favorite haunt, she saw this fold of wool and says she immediately thought of me! Now I am impressed with that, but Marcia lives in a very hot part of the country and I live up on the Canadian border. Did she just want to buy fabric, just having to react to that urge we all get, and having no use for wool tweed? I don't think so. You see, Marcia is a kind, caring person, who thinks of others way more than most of us do. She sincerely purchased this piece of wool for me and I sincerely appreciate the lovely gift. Did I tell you she paid 25 cents for the whole almost 2 yard piece? It had the labels attached with the pin when she found it. What a babe! Surprises headed your way, Marcia and big Thank Yous!


  1. Wowee, wow wow! I wish I was a Marcia with that kind of luck! Gorgeous stuff, that tweed is! Ironically, I recently bought some vintage silk tweed (off of ebay which makes for a less interesting story). Any plans for this gorgeous fabric?

  2. I am thinking, yikes, possibly felting it. I will do a sample first. My other thought was a Chanel jacket.
