There's hardly any green grass left to find. It all looks yellow. Nature is in desperate need of rain. Lots of rain.
Nevertheless I really wanted to buy some fabric at the beginning of my holiday and today I received 2 packages with fabric at the same time. Talking about planning!
In my head I'm already focussing on fall-sewing but there are some fabrics in my purchase that scream summer.
Well, let me talk you through the pile of goodies.
First, a loose woven, boucle-ish soft pink fabric. It was not showing on the picture on the website (nor is it here) but there is a little hinge of silver thread in it. Not in a way that i don't like though.
Then a viscose fabric, with vibrant blue and green in it. Beautiful but slippery.
Another viscose fabric, quite thin, see-through and flowy, with beautiful colours.
The colours are actually even more intense in real life.
A crincled, softblue/purple viscose with beautiful flowerprint. 95% of the fabric is as light as you can see at the top of this picture. The darker colours are only on one side at the end, so I can play with that and use it as a design-feature.
This fabric was a drag to photograph but I think I nailed it.....a lovely pink crepe fabric.
Talking about fall-sewing. This piece I réally like. It's a brick-coloured knitted fluffy fabric and I will be making a long cardigan out of it.
And finally, a grey jersey with little black spots. With this I'll make a pair of comfy loungepants to wear at home.
I think I've added enough to my fabric-stash to last me a while. I have more than enough fabric lying around but it's just fun to buy some new stuff now and then. And there are so many beautiful new fall- and winterfabrics coming out, I just want them all!!
Little update on my cat-friend for anyone who's interested.
Last week I went back to the veterinarian because I still had some questions about this artrose-condition in combination with the painkiller-medication. He said it would be best to do a blood-test to check the function of his kidneys and liver. My cat behaved just as bad as the last time but with the help of 2 assistants he managed to draw some blood without sedation. Which was great because now I could feed him right after we got home and he didn't have to deal with any side-effects. The blood-test showed that the kidneys are at a point where they are starting to deteriorate. Nothing abnormal for a cat his age, but a concern in combination with the painmedication he's having right now. So I have to give him half of the dose for 6 weeks and then go back for another blood-test. In the meantime I will have lots of time to spend with my little terror-cat ;-)
Well, I guess this is all I have to share right now. If there will be any sewing going on in the coming weeks, I'll let you know.
And I'll talk to you next time.
