Yesterday I felt so proud of myself when I walked into my local quilting store and walked out without any fabric! It's true I swear. I did buy some new needles for my machine (after reading Amy's suggestion in Bend the Rules Sewing), but again I repeat NO FABRIC.
And then I went to Tessuti for the first time. Just for a look.
Needless to say I did not get out alive. Luckily I was with my sister who was hungry and is seemingly not afflicted with my addiction so I needed to be relatively quick. Still I managed to come away with these little beauties ... to name a few ...
In the background is some black linen. I don't know what I'm going to do with it but just felt I needed it? In the foreground some Japanese cotton (can't remember the name. I am so bad with that). The Japanese fabric had "skirt" written all over it and lo and behold, what did the lady behind the counter have on? A skirt made with this exact fabric. I almost wet my pants.
So now I am after a skirt pattern for myself. Slightly A-line and preferably with internal pockets (is that what they are called?). Any suggestions?
Oh and join the Sunday Stash fun here. Unless of course you are trying to kick the habit ;)
