Edited to fit with the latest prompt for
Day 4: ” Write about a recent event you’ve been to or trip you’ve taken.”
Oh my aching toeses! Home again after the second Rag Market trip this week. I was going to be soooo good, I only wanted some ivory ribbon for my armistice blouse. But this happened.[And no ribbon.]
Then this happened
And once I picked up this lovely brown stuff in the market for £2/m, [intended for trousers for the wife, so it doesn’t count], we went into Fancy Silk Store and the lineny blue/brown stuff jumped into my bag cos it’s the perfect match.
And that was just me. Naughty Kim held back until we went into Barry’s, making out she’s all controlled…then she went batty. She says most of it is for jimjams for her hubby. We’ll see. The stripey stuff on top has the prettiest selvage, oddly pink…
Then Liz, and her other half Chris. Both planning a variety of co-ordinating outfits for the big steampunk event of the year, and sensibly arriving with a trolley. Which ended up full! A brilliant haul, including a hat for Liz, and shoes for Chris…and some special buttons.
Debra had to leave early for a train, as did Kev, [who chickened out of buying anything in any case] so no pics there. We had a lovely lunch in Mount Fuji, and a drinkypoo or two at the pub afterwards. What a day!
Here’s a pic or 2 of my partners in crime before they headed off for pastures newish.
Another fab day, and I have even more sewing to do now…sigh. Back to work Monday, but it’s been a great week.
