And now it’s this:
But at least I came home to this:
And I feel very happy to be back! The first things I did?
- Water the plant pots in the garden. (Please god my plants have survived my absence. Tomorrow morning will tell me.)
- Put the first of many loads in the washing machine.
- Sit cross legged on the floor with my new fabric purchases, pulling out my patterns.
The fabric that’s really putting me in a dither is the cotton in a dark batik print I bought in San Francisco. I love it, but I think usage needs carefully thinking about. This isn’t a dress or a top. I keep thinking about a long skirt with some clever draping – but I have no idea what. I have 2.5 yards, 44 inch wide.
Let me know if you have pattern suggestions. You’d really help me out!
