This weekend could only be described as highly successful in the pattern and fabric acquisition stakes (and the mexican food eating stakes, if we want to be truthful).
Friday was Cabramatta: Lovely stretch sateen poplin with a grey and black graphic rose print, and some green tinged linen-like sorta art deco stuff.
Then to remnant warehouse for pink and white linen gingham, green rickrack for trim, plain white linen (for tea towels), and 4.5m of pink satin for slips and lining.
The next day was Pitt Trading for some wedgewood blue stretch bengaline and some 1950s home journals with 36B patterns in them (see slideshow on right). Then to Spotlight where I finally bought the stretch poplin with the big scribbley green and blue roses I have thought about for ages (it finally went down to $5/m).
Next day: fifties fair. More patterns (now on slidehow), some green spotted rayon, brown and black rose stripe, and this heavenly white and green stuff with rosebuds (we think they are rosebuds). Here is me pretending I'm going to actually think twice about buying it.
