Meet Rowena. Excellent English. Extremely knowledgeable. Very on top of her inventory. The little vixen.
Fast forward to lunch and I am filled with remorse and contemplating putting a chop stick in my eye. What was I thinking???
You know what this 1-in-a-million husband of mine says? "let it go. You'll get 2 years of enjoyment out of this stack: petting it, pouring through patterns and blogs, planning, actual sewing. Then you get to wear it. And blog about it."
He's a keeper.
Here's my haul:
Linen, of course :)
|Bottom weight & light weight & coordinating print. All pre-washed and dried 3 times per blog advice|
Cottons & 2 pieces of silk organza:
|The one on the very bottom is gorgeous cotton sateen|
Look at this one! Isn't it fun? I'm thinking a vest and some sort of insert to pieces down the road.
This one is a stretch cotton silk with a border repeat. Gorgeous feel and drape.
My husband even ended up stuffing most of this in his carry on. Back home in UB, he asks me where I want the Unborn Clothing put. :D Seriously, though, I think I'll get about 12 pieces from this haul!
