I’ve been in a sewing rut for an entire 24 hours. I know! Catastrophe!
Will I ever sew again?
How many more hours can I stare blankly at a pattern envelope?
I hemmed Hazel last night and we are looking at each other quite smugly. I feel like I won. She feels like she put up a good fight. Yes, yes pictures soon I promise!
I was already to roll into another project, Sunni’s Simplicity 1880 Sewalongand just can’t find the fabric to ‘sing’ to me!!! I have this picture in my head of English roses and I can’t find it. The one above is lovely but the print is a little big. I LOVE the birdies with a frightening passion but not for this project.
I found a completely fabulous red border print in another shop but I’m not really a ‘red’ girl (unless it’s hair colour and then anything goes!). Should I throw caution to the wind?? Maybe if I wore it with a jaunty scarf tossed around my neck?
Returned home EMPTY HANDED. Yes, from a fabric shop. Twice. This is serious….
On the upside I received the Cambie & Renfew Patterns in the mail. Sew Squirrel has free shipping in Australia. It would have been silly not to buy them.
And it’s a bit of cake AND icing. Give me five! Balanced diet! Woo hoo! Tasia would approve.
Speaking of dieting…
I also succumbed to this very very funny vintage pattern on eBay.
I’m still laughing. A ‘pounds thinner pattern’ for a cereal company no less!
If this works I can found a sewing diet empire!
