to Sydney gave me an opportunity to visit Material Obsession for the first time. The store has a fantastic collection of fabrics in many different styles. I'm sure anyone who visits will find something that they just can't live without!
If I had been in the "start a new project" state of mind, I would have come away with a suitcase full. But as I have so many things taking up my headspace, I opted for two purchases in kit form.
The first is a version of Amy Butler's Barcelona skirt. I haven't sewn any garments for such a long time now I was a bit nervous. But this is a very straightforward pattern, and I'm very happy with the result. I'll certainly be making more of these!
would have been a better photo if I was wearing it, but noone is here so that would be TOUGH.
The second purchase is a kit containing Kaffe fabrics to make an ottoman. This was NOD's choice and she promised me that she would helpt to make it. Needless to say it is still in the packet. Hmmmmmmmmmm, I wonder how long it will stay there?
It was a delight to meet Kathy. She is so enthusiastic and helpful, wish she was closer!
My sewing this week has been to make some more headway with the Imperial Blooms BOM and to tackle Block 2 of Funky Feathers.
This is Block 3 of Imperial Blooms completed.
Love the centre stitching.
And this is Block 4 ready for embroidery.
Yesterday we had an SSS meeting which was absolutely delightful as always. We missed a couple of the gals including Di who is currently in Holland teaching I think. Message to Petra
"Please send her back soon, we miss her".
I think Kerry will be putting up a post at SSS shortly.
That's it. Feels like some substantial progress made this week.
Now my garden needs some attention and the sun is shining. Life's tough no?
Joy to all,
