Well, I’ve had some of the marking money, the holidays have started, and it’s the wife’s birthday on Sunday, so we’ve started the fun by dropping into Majestic Wines on the way to a rather scrummy pub lunch on the way home.
So, one nap later [I’m a lightweight these days, sorry] I’m doing a bit [OK a lot] of online shopping. Therapy.
So far I’ve ordered, GoT Season 4, and pre-ordered season 5 and Avengers-Age of Ultron. Thanks Amazon!
I got there via succumbing to a flyer from one of the local theatres for a showful of Motown hits: ‘How Sweet It Is’. Should be a hoot.
Then I went for a little bimble and ordered some Liberty fabrics from Shaukat’s: look at these lovelies. I saw the book-print one yonks ago on the Liberty main site, but couldn’t afford it…bargain! The other is for the MIL, as she was admiring the wife’s Liberty shirt yesterday. Little treat ma?
Not so bad you say? But last night I went all ebay-ish, and ordered four lengths from The Textile Centre, and a couple from a new-to-me seller, Cheapest Fabrics. I’ll report back when they arrive- the pale blue looks lovely, it’s a silk/cotton blend…suspiciously cheap though!
Plain black jersey cos I need some plain tops, and the Mayan print just cos. Again, may well be more for the wife, depends on the shades.
And the new contender. I love black/white graphic designs, and this just HAPPENED to be the same print as the dress I was wearing when I made it, but a different colourway. Fate, obviously. And just look at that sexy pale blue…mmmm
Greedy, undisciplined Fairy. I’d better get sewing eh?
Apart from finishing the works in progress, I plan to make some more trousers, some plain/simple tops, and as it’s Lingerie Month, I should get cracking to use up all that lovely bra kit that I bought. Laters!
