(It’s designer fabric sale time again).
The mystery fabric is quite gorgeous. It was purchased as a sample by the designer some time ago, but never used. The fibre composition isn’t known any more but it feels like a synthetic, perhaps with a silk thread in the coloured overlay pattern. I’ve just handwashed it and nothing terrible happened…
The grey floral rayon/poly/linen is crinkled and sheer and could look great under a suit. And that swirly zebra print turquoise chiffon? How could I leave that behind?
The wool/cotton woven fabric is reversible. So not only do I have to make a decision about what to make with it, I also have to decide what side to use.
He who Cooks says all these purchases just mean more weekends on his own while I spend time with my sewing machines. Is he trying to say that I need to bring more balance into my life? Perhaps I should spend less time at work….
On a serious note, I am very lucky to have a husband who enjoys spending time with me. And who also understands that I need to sew. And doesn’t complain or even comment on how much money I spent on the fabric or the space my stash takes up.
