I have 4 mtrs of this, it was a great find. I have a dress in this fabric that I made about 2 years ago and have been looking for some more ever since. They had it in green as well and now I could kick myself for missing out.
This is destined to become a quilt back at some point.
As is this, it is a pretty print and I have a plan in mind.
This will become a dress and maybe a blouse, I have plenty of fabric and it even has a chance to be a Walkaway dress.
There is a baby on it's way this summer and this print just sings out to be a quilt. or two.
I know, it's so wrong. It was also very, very cheap. With some backing fabric from the stash it will make an Advent calendar for the grands. each stocking will hold 3 gifts.
These are more like it, part of an Easter Panel. This will not be used this year but next year will make a play quilt for that baby I mentioned earlier.
My knitting is going well, apart from that very old WIP, the front is finished and the sleeves are started. Oops, I forgot to say that I am knitting Fran a cardigan ready for her birthday next November. I have had the yarn for ages but only found it during my Spring cleaning flurry.
I know that there are months to go but "That Time" will be on the horizon so the birthday stuff needs to be collated in good time.
It is a 30/70 blend of wool and acrylic so easy care for her. Very soft and very blasted splitty.
The fade between colours is soft so matching a new ball in was not easy, even getting the sleeves to match was not a 2 minute task. I will show you how well (or not) that I managed it when they are finished.
We have just finished dinner, a chicken and veg curry that was not too bad at all.
I went to the Flying Goose Quilt shop this morning, I needed some fabric for a quilt border and some white on white for the sashing in Lucy's quilt. I had meant to pop into debs wool shop, but when I put my fabric in the car I was on automatic pilot and just drove home. DUH.
Now I think that it is time for a brew followed by some gentle knitting.
