Bits and Pieces

I’m not sure where the time has gone, we have been home for 6 weeks and so far and all I have managed to do is add to my stash :)

Just before I left to go overseas I purchased this Milano Printed Gold knit from Knitwit to make the Burda dress 5-2008-104 adding long sleeves as I have seen something very similar in the shops. I have already made the top 5-2008-103 so I have a lot of the fitting issues already worked out.

I managed to find some fabric shops during our travels and purchased a gorgeous piece of Cashmere in London – 2 metres which DH commented that he had never seen me make a decision so quick LOL. I plan to make a jacket of some sort, not sure of the style as yet.

Then in Paris this blue/brown patterned silk leaped into my bag and I plan to make a blouse with this.

The Fabric Store in Sydney had a sale night the other week and Velosewer and I went to see what they had to offer. I purchased this brown spot knit and two pieces of Merino Wool in a mauve and brown colour.

The last piece of knit above caught the eye of Velosewer at Spotlight and as it was in the remnant bin I am now the proud owner of 3 metres of the "giraffe" knit.

I have a lot of ideas floating around, so need to focus on getting the patterns cut out and adjusted LOL.
