    You know that broderie/eyelet stuff that’s been everywhere? I haven’t been able to find anything that looks even a little like what’s in rtw right now. Until a few days ago when I finally saw some at fabric.com! since I needed some swatches of linen anyway, I bought a few yards.

    For my birthday I bought four yards of Anna Maria horner’s field study voile. The orange feather one. I’ve never worn orange before, but this stuff is lovely. It’s going to be a fall maxi dress, maybe Washi, but with short sleeves and perhaps a crossover bodice. I am tabling it while I decide.

    I just got this in the mail: http://www.fabric.com/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=867c8117-d738-415c-844f-020d880aaca1

    It is really impressively nice! You know how fabric.com can be. Sometimes it’s awful cheap stuff and sometimes you land something great. This is is soft, drapy in a beautiful shade of navy. It’s scalloped at the selvedge, so it would be a pretty dress. Oh, what am I going to do with it?

    A bit more Out to Sea for my son to have a proper bedquilt. Some solid white fabric, just because and I am currently deciding on prints to make shirt for hubby’s birthday – Parson Gray is looking the leader. I have to purchase green fabric for a costume my son has to dress as The Wizard of Oz for his class item so am on the look out for emerald green velveteen.

    No one warned me when I started sewing how addictive buying fabric would be. I have a ton. Some of my favourites are from Lotta Jansdotter, At Play by Michael Miller and I have quite a lot of pinwale cord. I have some in Kelly green which I’m planning on making into an a line skirt for me. I could go on and on…

    I’ve just ordered some of Riley Blake’s 1/2″ stripes – a half yard assortment offered by Fort Worth Fabric Studio. I’m anticipating using them to trim/line summer creations for small people. I love corduroy, too. So versatile, and so easy to wash.

    My pigeon fabric has arrived! I think I will use some to make the quilted lining to the school days jacket. Cute!

    Maggie I saw a Pigeon roller skate dress in the Flickr group. Crikey that’s cute fabric.

    I’ve bought some more $3/metre cotton lycra from the local Vietnamese shop so plenty more T-shirts and knit sewing for me.

    Sophie your fabric hoard sounds lovely. It is addictive isn’t it…

    So many really great prints out there! I am dying to get my hands on some Liberty Stiles! But, the latest fabric for my stash is some Emerald green velveteen that hubby has bought on my behalf in order to finally make the Wizard of Oz jacket and hat for Noah’s class assembly item in two weeks. I couldn’t get to spotlight so he swung by on his way home from Perth!

    I can’t help but be annoyed at this! Hubby has just arrived home after going to Spotlight for velveteen so I an do this costume. Instead, he was lead astray, being a vulnerable male who doesn’t know what velveteen looks like and instead was given panne velvet by the sales lady! Apparently the sign said velveteen but there wasn’t any there! So they gave him what ever looked like it in emerald green instead.

    Of course it isn’t Murray’s fault but I cannot excuse the so called expertise of the lady serving him!

    Poor Murray! Will the panne velvet still work for the costume?

    I am planning to make winter pjs out of cotton knit for a friend’s daughter. I ordered fabric for that ( purple ballet dancers) and for my own daughter (yellow with cakes/cupcakes).

    A few other little odds and ends might have slipped into the shopping cart. You know how this happens when one is placing an order. I am thinking of making undies for my daughter out of my knit scraps so I bought some FOE.
