As I was about to sit down and write this post last night, I learnt from Julia that one of our WOYWW friends Janet Fairythoughts has sadly passed away. I dedicate today's post to her memory.
Farewell Janet. I will miss your funny comments and kind words of encouragement.
Now as it is Wednesday I am taking part in the WOYWW phenomenon with my friend Julia so when you have read my post why not go HERE to see the other desks that take part.
Time to share my desk, which is actually my dining room table, where I have been making a new top for myself.
A lovely new shop has opened up in Abergavenny - Black Mountain Fabrics, and I found myself wandering down to the shop in my lunch break and saw this fabric and then the pattern for the top and knew I had to have it. Well, I need to support my local fabric shop didn't I!!
Here is one of the pockets. I cannot believe that there were 10 tailor's tacks involved in the pockets alone and like a good girl I actually sewed the tacks instead of just cheating with pins!! You can see some of the pink thread I used at the top edges of the pocket.
And for those of you who want to know what the finished item looks like, here is the pattern. mine is the purple one bottom left. I will have to get the man to take a photo of me so I can share the finished top. I am liking it very much and even got accosted in Waitrose on Sunday by a lady asking me where I got it!! I should have offered to make it for her but I know I had the last of that fabric!! Hee Hee.
Thanks for calling by. Now please leave a comment an then off you go to Julia's blog HERE.
