I’m back! Indy was good, although I didn’t get the chance to check out that yarn store you were all on about! Next time.
I cam back to the fabric I ordered from Cia’s Palette last week. Yay, fabric!
I think the sewing bug comes in waves, definitely stronger in the spring and summer when I can whip up some skirts and bags (well, mostly skirts really) to wear out and about. And I think my laptop sleeve experience spurred on the sewing thing, too.
Not that I don’t already have a fabric stash. Cuz I do. I really must figure out what to make with it all! Anyway, I had trouble narrowing down the fabrics I wanted to something within reason, but I ended up with (left to right):
– Alexander Henry fabric for a skirt, perhaps wrappy-type,
– unknown “Homespun Simple Check”, probably for a dress,
– some Amy Butler for a top
– and the last two pieces are Chocolate Lollipop (which I love!), for a top and a skirt.
The tops will definitely be of the Built by Wendy cap-sleeve persuasion, from the pattern at right. I’ve never made a top before, but since this one’s a raglan and supposedly very easy, I think I can do it! I might try the dress, too, if the top turns out well.
A closeup of the Galaxy print. I’m thinking a nice flowy circle skirt, my favourite for the summer. All the fabric’s in the process of being washed at the moment, and I think I might even give something (a top) a whirl tonight.
In the meanwhile, I’m taking a chill day and watching some Buffy, and knitting my Manos silk sweater – it’s coming out great!
