What's on Your Sewing Table?

I have a few things on mine. I really need a sundress or two or three for that matter. It is really hot here in Atlanta. I has been in the 90's and will continue on through next week. The kids and I hit the zoo and a pool today - it was hot as hades out there. I have Butterick 5083 cut in a very busy cotton print.
I found a striped knit at one of the neighborhood discount fabric stores along with the sundress material mentioned above. There are 2 discount fabric stores near my house. I'll have to post about them one day. Anyway, I think I want that fabric to turn into a cap sleeve raglan T-shirt. I'll be modifying a long sleeve raglan pattern.

The third thing is New Look 6470 view D with this fabric.
I know several people bought this fabric last year from Hancock. It's time that is has left the stash and turned into something. I'm not sure how much I'll get done this weekend but I'll steal some time here and there to sew.
Here are all the fabrics I bought during that trip to the fabric store. I went in to find something for the sundress and left with a few extras. The first pic shows the 2 wovens and the second pic shows the 3 knits. I told myself that I had to have something in mind for each fabric before purchasing. There was so much more I could have bought.

I certainly do love that yellow and grey print. It has been so hot here we are melting, and getting cranky with each other. :(
