Not the kitchen table, or even the floor this week, but a heap on the sofa. The spoils of a little shopping trip with my Mum yesterday. I took her to buy lining, interfacing and a zip for a skirt she is making. I may have had a little splurge myself, in Fabricland. Well it would have been rude not to. Don’t you think?
I have plans for all of it, although I may just have to stroke it for a while first. There is purple denim for a skirt, a fresh blue and white cotton for PJ bottoms and that Liberty style (I think so anyway) print for an infinity scarf. I also bought red and white polka dots for that fifties style dress pattern, elastic and a zip, all for under £35.
With all the money I *saved* I was able to splash out on something a little bit quirky. I ordered these Fat Quarters from Sew Scrumptious last week. I really wanted to see the designs up close, before choosing which print to use for an A line skirt. I narrowed it down to the bottom two and in the end the foxes won. The colours are gorgeous and the fabric has a lovely feel to it. The other prints will come in useful, my daughter has her eye on the skulls. Which would you have chosen?
I’m off to link up with Julia and see what everyone else is up to while I drink my coffee. No noisy housework for me (what a shame) as I have a poorly girl at home today and she’s having a little nap. After a double lesson playing tennis in the midday sun yesterday, she has a burnt nose and cheeks and is still feeling a bit icky. I feel so guilty for not reminding her to put sunscreen on, she’s never had sunburn in all her nearly 14 years. I think the sunshine took us all by surprise.
