Luscious

As a reward for finishing my exam (although I am yet to sit it!!) and therefore the first unit of my masters of management studies, I bought some yardage and 30cm strips of the gorgeous, gorgeous fabric you see in the above photo (click for a larger image) from my LQS on Monday while Romily was at playschool. Most of this is destined for dresses for Romily - I'm just waiting for my Sandi Henderson Portabello Pixie 'Claire' pattern to arrive in the mail and we'll be making up some gorgeous dresses and tops for summer.

I am loving the combination of red, yellow, white and black. I think the left over fabric might be destined for a quilt...for me - I haven't made one for me yet. I think it's just about time!

The exam is tomorrow afternoon. Three hours. I feel like I'm an undergrad student again! Wish me luck :)

Break a leg tomorrow! (In case you don't know - a stage expression that means "good luck" but doesn't jinx anything.) I'm sure you'll do well - and will be so glad it is behind you.

The reds are marelous! Those girl patterns by Portobello Pixie are so cute - sure wish my son and daughter-in-law liked them so I could make some for Sophie and later Lily. Unfortunately when I showed them her designs they said "they just didn't fit their lifestyle.

Good luck for tomorrow - you have already achieved so much.

Love the fabric and can't wait to see what you can make it up into.

Lovely fabrics. I like those 2 red floral ones. Can just envision a lovely dress or skirt with it.

BTW, how was the exam?

I love the fabrics. For the first time Chereise wasn't in either pink or purple today - she was in red! It's the only red thing she has, but I can't wait to make something else red for her as it really suited her... maybe a nice red christmas dress should be added to my to-do list lol.

Hope your exam went well!

Good luck on your exam! The Claire pattern for dresses is just adorable. Cute, cute, cute! Romily will be pleased.
