indie pattern & another stashed project

this fabulucious buttery rayon has been aging for... easily a decade, until I could trace the pieces so I'd have the pattern, whoch I tossed - waaaahhhh!!!

indie pattern challenge

The linen-cotton fabric ordered from amazon arrived Friday night and got laundered Saturday.  Yes, amazon does have fabric & the provider listed is ~ it’s the exact same fabric! But goodness ~ it had more lint than a heavy cotton bath towel. Am thinking to laundry & dry once more before cutting out my Middy Blouse.  Why’d I order from amazon? I needed to get some notions that were a little less dear than on, and a couple of things didn’t have.

another project from the vault…

The story behind the yellow rayon above began aaages ago.  The fabric is another stashed California fabric.  The colour, which doesn’t reproduce quite correctly, is a wonderful sunflower yellow, not too bright, with a hint of that brown sunflower centre with the yummy seeds. Have 2 other unlined pull-ons from the pattern, but cannot locate the pattern online. Mind you, also can’t remember the pattern company or year, either!  I just remember thinking that if I left the pieces all cut out I could toss the pattern & copy from the pieces for another pattern, then sew it up. Ten-plus years later, it’s finally getting done.

forgot to mention yesterday…

Dragged another project out over the weekend, but this one’s knitting. Found this yarn 2 or 3 years ago, and thought it would make a soft, glittery evening shawl. Got it started and almost done, then shelved it. Now hope to get it finished. 1 ball of yarn to go!  (Details over on ravelry.)

All for now, Lovelies ~ happy sewing!
