Check out this fabric I was lusting after for weeks after seeing it in Tiverton Heathcotes. Of course it played me so much I had to go back and get it !
I think, shock horror, that I will make a skirt with it.
|Oh man I LOVE this !!|
Its a little worrying that I am addicted to novelty prints.
Especially as I live in a very small place.
I wonder if locals refer to me as the
Crazy curtain fabric wearing lady !
I also scored these, the first was an eBay gem, almost 5 meters of Laura Ashley cotton lawn for no more than £18 !! Bargain ! It feels so nice and I am desperate to turn it into a beautiful dress.
I also bought a meter of this large green polka dot - but I wish I had bought more as I think it would be lovely made into a dress. That will learn me for just buying fabric willy nilly with no real plan !
Its funny as I bought some fabric a couple of weeks ago (curtain fabric of course) which I specifically bought to make a skirt (which I hope to show you tomorrow). When I got it home Mr P wanted the fabric to be made into a blind, but friends I could not part with it as I had seen the skirt in my mind and I had to have it.
Mr P wanted me to score some more of THE SAME fabric to make into a blind but no way can I be blending into the soft furnishings when I am cooking in the kitchen ! The shame !
So I promised I would get something better to make into a blind :-)
And I think I got the perfect stuff (and Mr P agreed that THIS fabric was much better and fitted in with the colour scheme (cream units, white walls). Everyone was happy !! :-)

I went through all my patterns last night trying to identify what I want to make next and I can happily say that I did choose 5 (out of around 50 !!! OMG when did I get a pattern addiction - somebody PLEASE stop me !) that I hope to make up over the next few months.
I did manage to find my pyjama pattern - phew - and I have some plans to sew them up with silk from my stash (stash bustin' YAY!). I have never worked with silk and thought I would try it first with something easy to sew with few curves. I am hoping that I wont hate it and can make a beautiful silk dress. Cans of spray starch at the ready !
Well, that's me done, I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday ! I am hoping to take snaps of my 2 recent makes to share with you either today or tomorrow, I cant tell you how happy I am with how they turned out !
Dont forget to enter my Renfrew pattern give-away here.
Also the delightful Ginger is hosting a Colette pattern give-away of your choice over at her place. How generous ! (I would have been in but I already scored me ALL 3 of the new patterns, I have no self control and am truly disgusting !).
