MMM Day 28: Hello sunshine!

3 Jun

Wow the weather was so good recently. And I spent a lot of time away from my sewing table and my computer! I went out for a wander in town in this little number on Saturday. It’s one of the first things I ever made and I still love wearing it! It’s made from quilters cotton in a print called Brooklyn heights. There are little dots arranged in an unusual zig zag pattern and the colour is beautiful (to me anyway). I HAVE to get better at my photos. This was taken in the courtyard and again, we missed the sun and the best picture turned out to be my crazy face snap.

Now moving on, time to brag about my Mother again, AND my Dad this time too! Remember the car boot?

They went back and cleared it out!!

45 zips in varying colours and sizes, some double ended zips too!

3 patterns, some lilac cotton, cream satin and brown satin bias binding and some pink braided cord

3m of blue polyester lining, 7m of peach polyester lining, 2m of peach chiffon, and 1.5m of royal blue silk

9 bobbins of mercerised thread, and then a whole load of colours and sizes. Yummy


I’m a super lucky girl. And you know what I’m going to say. This lot was an insane bargain!! A massive £12 for the lot. Amazing!!
