lisette sewalong effort, I am in the zone. Keen to go back to back on the couture for moi. So after delivering the wee girl to kindergarden this morning, all packaged up so cute in her school uniform and topped with a red satin ribbon, the boys and I perused the op shops on the way home. How convenient that they just happen to be at the end of my street? Stop one ... two lovely books that sparked a cheeky wee idea for this round of birthdays coming up in May (my smalls birthdays are the 23,24,25 of May - madness or rather genius if you consider that two of them are twins)... oh and I put an ACE sewing desk on hold .. to pick up tomorrow!! Stop two ... just the gear I needed for the practice run of Colette's Peony dress.
her patterns for a while, I was a little bit stoked to find them stocked at Milkbar. Not just coffee there, my friends. I found this linen-look pink fabric (near on 5m!) this morning. Perfect for my first whirl. I suspect it's a cotton/poly ... but it is super soft and has a nice drape which will allow me to see how I go.
Plus, it's pink. Not my thang exactly, but the wee girl will wet her pants.
Oh, and I grew that dahlia. Not the roses. I stole those out of Loz's garden. If you know me you know that THAT is my thang.
