I am in trouble, big trouble.... There is a small crack in the bedroom ceiling, I think it's nothing but Ian's blaming the weight of the fabric stored in the loft.... Needless to say he isn't happy! So when I took Mum home today, following her stay over the Easter break, I resisted a detour to the fabric shop in Sturminster Newton, and came straight home. That crack must be nagging away at me!
So, I went shopping in the loft instead this afternoon. Once I got over the thought of getting up there (am I the only one who gets the colly wobbles going into lofts?) I found a lovely blue silk and wool soft tweed, with a suitable lining and enough needle cord to make a trench coat for spring. Here's a strange thing. There wasn't one piece of fabric that I had forgotten about, or that took me by surprise - and believe me, there is an awful lot of it!
Here's a picture of a few pieces I allowed myself to bring down, some of which is being pre-shrunk as we speak.
I will be watching The Sewing Bee on BBC2 this evening. I would have loved to enter, but didn't know about it, did you?
