Right, here we go then - when i was at the quilt festival i saw this lovely pattern and in a mad moment thought, i can do that!
in a matter of seconds, i thought i'd give it a go - needless to say its nowhere near as easy as it looks, for me anyway!
I've never made a skirt before! Anyway i popped down to the local fabric shop - why is it that when i get in there i'm so mesmerized by all the lovely fabric it takes me ages to choose, when before i get in the door i know exactly what i'm looking for! I eventually chose this
the pic does not do the colours justice. So i cut the fabric out yesterday - i forgot to say that its also a lined skirt, with zip, which i have also never done before! Today, somewhen, i'm hoping to make a start on the sewing. So if you should suddenly hear loud screams of frustration, that will be me!
I have an alternative plan though. I bought this at the show also
sorry about c..p pic! So if the skirt is not going well, i can plan another quilt!
Or, plan c, i can practice sewing freehand - when seeing Janet Clare at the festival do this
However, for the moment it looks like this outside- blue skies, not a cloud to be seen!so am off to do the horses before it rains!
Hope you all have a lovely long weekend.
