This is the blue top I cut out and started at the same time as the yellow/red/spotty one.
It has sat neglected while I played delightedly with my new laptop, made a case for it, and packed for our trip. But in the new spirit of finishing things up which I’m trying to foster, I decided to Get It Done. So I did. And here it is.
It’s quite gaudy enough without any additional details, I think. Although there’s a small demon at the back of my mind saying “wouldn’t a nice big pink fabric rose look great pinned to the yoke?”. I shall not pay any attention…. no matter how much my inner child might agree.
I’ve got enough tops like this now, so this will be the last one of that style. Time for something new. Perhaps the next sewing job will be that A-line shift dress for which I cut the pattern a few days ago.
I spoke to my sister in France a few days ago, the one who’s eagerly awaiting her quilt. For my birthday, she is going to send me 2 metres of Liberty Tana Lawn, which comes in the super large width of 1.3m. Huge excitement! This is the one I’ve chosen: Patsy. To be honest, it’s going to take a while before I’m brave enough to take the scissors to it, but it’s too good to waste. Perfect for this weather, durable, soft, beautiful and irresistible.
Good job there’s nowhere selling Liberty fabrics within a thousand kilometres of here….
