Yesterday it was rainy and the ironing board still not together. Went to the fabric store instead, for basics like binding & piping, needles & pins. Mind you, that’s just after writing me talented friend Josée that I don’t much like binding. (Maybe using some will warm the affections, huh?) The store’s fabric was uninspiring, which is not a bad thing, considering The Stash Here.
Got caught in a bit of rain coming home, and saw that caftan when I came in the door . Not very wrinkley, so ready enough for lounging, and I was in the mood. The hem
drags drapes a bit on the floor. Guess I’ll eventually lop some off. Probably. Possibly. We’ll see. It’s always nice to have a bit extra to cover toes.
Bought a magazine instead of fabric: stitch, creating with fabric & threads. As it was labeled, “get organised this summer with 8 fun projects” and had 34 more “sizzling summer projects” I thought it might give me some ideas. It also included a double-sided sheet of patterns for some of the projects, and the web site has more. Now if only it would give me the impetus to do them.
At $14.99 USD I thought it expensive, but it seemed worth it for all the project ideas & templates. If any of you Dear Readers see a copy or already know the magazine, I’d love to know your opinion.
Hopefully, will have a nice surprise on Saturday. Mmm… you’ll never guess!
