Pattern inspiration

The first print is a Boden print for Spring and the second is a bag that my friend Anne has which I am coveting.

A batch of sewing to do.

Cut out blouses ready for sewing.

Fabric and commissions

I have been asked to make a sixties style outfit of flared cords and a paisley blouse for a custom black Blythe. I went to my favourite fabric shop for some inspiration and found just the thing. Can't wait to start work on it this weekend.

And here are some of the things that have been made from the lovely fabric.

Inspiration and stuff

Got a lovely pattern book from Japan for inspiration. The patterns are quite interesting, but lots of Momoko and extra stuff I don't want. I think I can adapt some to my needs though.

I am thinking about the colours that the bathroom is going to be, once finished and also the general theme of decoration in the house. I have always had the combination of pomegranate red and celadon green in my brain as the perfect combination for me. Typical thought to marry a colour blind man, who has problems with red and green, so is usually unappreciative of the subtleties of this mix- which is a great shame.


We have been away in Scotland for a week, and now all is back to normal, apart from the unfinished bathroom, which was supposed to have been completed in the week we were away. Bleh!

But Scotland was beautiful, as ever, and food for the soul. I find the landscape there awe-inspiring. Obvious I know, but you can't beat Glen Coe, and Loch Lomand, and I am not even scottish.
