Today is 07/07/07

But even more important it is, according to my Vogue Fabrics by Mail catalogue (do they know their customers, or what?) and the National Confectioners Association, Chocolate Day!

So enjoy some but don't get it on your fabric.

Loads of people want to get married today as it is such a 'lucky' day -I'd stick with the chocolate, but we have none at home. Woe is me!
love and kisses, Jan

Yes it was on the news about the weddings that are taking place today. Last year was 06/06/06 and nobody wanted to get married. LOL My BIL was 16 years old on 6/6/66. And he is a beast so I guess it's true. :bluesmile :dave:

I have to say I like the chocolate deal, I've had chocolate all day today and I'm regretting it. I ate too much. Weight Watchers here I come. :bg:
I'm regressing back into my youth, I just have to figure out how I'm going to convience my body to come along with me.

I won some fabric that has a chocolate print on it at the monthly raffle of our sewing guild a few months back. I guess today would be a good day to be inspired to make something out of it. I thought the print would be fun lining for a jacket, but it's really quilting cotton. Guess I'll make some pillows or a funky bag!
