You sell some you buy some!


Now I wouldn't say that I was an 'orange' person. But when I was drawn towards this fabric in a shop today my friend Claire rolled her eyes and said that is so you-you're an orange person aren't you? (Maybe it is because a bare a striking physical resemblance to the Tango man?) Anyway I think this is ace and I'm really looking forward to making something suitably subversive with it.....look closely it has some pale pink in it!
I also stocked up on wool- seriously this lovely cream and pink bubbly stuff was 60p a ball- no really! I bought some spotty buttons and hair ties in proper girly colours will follow shortly. I love the little wool shop in Deal. I got this little lot and some sewing machine needles (does it matter that I haven't bought Bernina ones?) for £8.51. I'm really pleased with this......though I'm guessing unless I get it packed away pretty smartish Simon will be less impressed....shhh......secret squirrels!
