Fabric Buying and Musings
A week or so ago, I had the urge to check out the fabric bin at my favourite op shop for fabric. Of course when one has an itch, it really must be scratched, so scratch I did and this is what I came away with.
In this haul, there is some brick red linen, matching striped cotton lycra, also matching cotton woven shirting weight, very funky satin, a piece of lining for an upcoming project and two pieces of taslon, also for an upcoming project. One of these pieces has already been made into something for autumn but I am yet to get a photo.
Oh and a little housekeeping..................
'I, Andrea, sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May '13. I endeavour to wear at least one me made item each day for the duration of May 2013'
Yup, I am participating again. The incessant photography last year, did not deter me from participating again. In fact, I find it quite handy at this time of the year, looking back and seeing what I wore last year on those no inspiration kind of days.
Has anyone else outside of the UK been glued to Youtube watching "The Great British Sewing Bee". It got me thinking. How would I cope with time constraints and the pressure? Would I cope with creativity in the face of cameras or would my brain turn to mush. I suspect the later might be the case!
I admire Ann. She is so unflappable and just gets on with the job with outstanding results. Her no nonsense approach reminds me so much of my late grandmother who still remains my sewing idol.
I am really looking forward to the next installment and if TVNZ are reading this....could I please have a New Zealand version? It would make a pleasant change from all of those reality cooking shows!
