My mom and I went out for thrift shopping and lunch today and she gave me a copy of the Sew What Skirts book I’ve been hunting for. Yay! Now I can put the pretty fabric I got at Fabricland on the weekend to good use.
Today at Value Village I also scored two metres of this pretty fabric for $3.99:
It reminds me of a summer sunset. I think it will make a nice wrap skirt.
Prompted by Pamela Wynne’s latest post I also picked up Simplicity 4077 at Fabricland. I’ve been scouring Ebay and Etsy for some cute printed cotton. I’ve put a bid in on this lovely Denyse Schmidt Flea Market Fancy number:
but there’s still five days left in the auction so I’m trying not to get my hopes up.
In Knitting Knews I mysteriously received another copy of Interweave Winter 2007 in the mail so if anyone is in need drop me a comment. I will need you to cover shipping, though.
Enid is inching along. Although it feels more like millimetring along. A quick knit this is not.
I love that contrasting hem. Who cares if no one we’ll see it but me?
