Our weather just went from Sunday’s mid-50’s (around 12℃) to Tuesday’s 77℉ (25℃). Normal’s in the mid-60’s.
Last night I dug out those lovely summer donations from my friend, Ms. Karen, for a quick launder. Now to get out the blouses.
Backtracking a bit: After realizing my winter wardrobe had 1 solid blue sweater (jumper) I’d been looking for solid blue fabrics for tops for over a month, with no success.
Now look at the trousers on the left.
Cue theme from Jaws . . . .
Me Made May approacheth, the month of wardrobe reckoning . . . and I’m not ready. 😳
Karen from Did You Make That advises, Never make orphans (a piece that doesn’t coordinate with something else in your wardrobe). Great advice. Unfortunately following it is proving difficult.
Problem is there are so many gorgeous patterns and neh-va the correct (dare I write “boring”?) solid colour I need.
What to do . . .
New decor being almost as high a priority as wardrobe, friend & fellow sewer Ms. Karen & I went to the quilt shop where I got my fabric last week. I wanted to get more for a curtain, and maybe something else for a couple of pillows.
Then we decided to have lunch over in the area where there’s a large Joann’s, and look around afterward. It was almost a repeat of our trip last December, but this time I found more than just pillows, thanks to Ms. K’s eagle eye & our similar taste in colours.
