There seems to be a distinct lack of seriousness pervading the online sewing world. I expect you saw Karen’s confession vis a vis purchase of some very immature dinosaur fabric.
I ask you?!
Then about the same time, Roobeedoo posted about prints and what governs your print buying, and whether anyone thinks about the images prints portray, you know, for some gingham conjures up images of schooldays, for others animal prints might not be work appropriate. ahem. cough.
My turn to confess. I had mentioned that I have an elephant thing & pointed to Shivani’s amazing elephant shirt. I never countenanced elephant fabric until that point in time. And Roobeedoo, always the one who seems to have encyclopedic knowledge of every sewing product & style out there, aka temptress supreme, advised that Ditto fabrics had three different colours of elephant fabric in stock. I whooped right over there. Lots of little ellies on navy, on beige or on pink. Now I am a grown up, so what possessed me?
Why I have bought something fit for girls’ PJs? Trouble is, I overthought this, as my instinct was to go for the navy, but I am trying to bring more colour into my clothing [rolling eyes] no kidding. I have cut it out. It is not going to be nightwear or beachwear. No it is not even going to be novelty boxer shorts for Gary. It is going to be another Violet blouse. We’ll see how grown up it can be!
However, this is not the sole case of craziness in my sewing plans. Remember this addition to my pattern collection?
Yes, I felt positively euphoric when the possibilities for Christmas presents dawned on me after bagging it at the pattern swap at the Crafters’ Ceilidh in Edinburgh. [Progress is zero, by the way, but I am waiting for a fabric buying bonanza in Walthamstow, Goldhawk Road or even Birmingham.] But it still stands as something very silly in my sewing queue for 2012. But guess what? It has been joined by something else:
Pig in a tutu! (courtesy of Roo…. thank you)
Yep, there is definitely something strange & I think it’s contagious. You’d better watch out ….
Come on, fancy making me feel better? What’s the daftest thing you’ve got lined up to sew?
PS sorry about the randomness of picture sizing and styling. That’ll teach me not to mix my cameras …
