chasing the Toll Priority man

  • They seem to be holding my new DSLR camera hostage.
  • Meanwhile, an incredibly lazy weekend spent by the fire, knitting and watching season 2 & 3 of Bones.
  • I finished the destroyed Cowl, but have no idea how to block it.
  • Yummy pumpkin soup, specially ordered by Spence, with home made foccacia.
  • I have to go to work, even though I'm supposed to be on hols. BAS time sucks.
  • House cleaning day today, then sew-a-rama for two weeks!

Research & Development

I've got some research to do.

Another "similar but different" jacket in the works

and some progress shots.

and a new DSLR camera on it's way.....

Who I am...... in Fabric

Sew Mama Sew does a section where guests come and create a fat quater sets, and they publish them on their blog, and you can purchase the sample pack on line. I subscribe to Sew Mama Sew in Bloglines, and this morning while I should have been doing shop paperwork I saw this entry.

If fabric could describe who you are, well then, this is EXACTLY who I am.

I now am seriously lusting after ALL of this fabric. Two lines are sold out, but some serious google-ing may be in order.

From the Sew Mama Sew Blog:

First Row

Four Square Piney Woods ~ Hope Valley
Boxes White ~ Mingle
Fancy Floral Black ~ Cutie Pie

Second Row
Dot Black ~ Attitude Girls
Honeycomb Sunglow ~ Modern Meadow
Huevos Gray ~ Michael Miller

I see an entire wardrobe based around these fabrics, jackets, dresses, skirts, shirts,tops, bags, fabric jewelery....OMG, the list, she, goes on......
