The frost this morning had everything glistening magically as we walked to School. The sun streaming in my windows is delightful but the wind is cold and its only 8 deg outside in that Sun, the apparent temp in the shade according to the Bureau of Meteorology is 0.5
My inherited fabric stash.
As the days are getting colder I am noticing that Little Mr's coat sleeves are not really long enough and thinking Miss could use a shorter length winter coat too. So I start to think about heavier weight and more suitable fabrics.
Then it occurred to me to check what I had taken from my mums last year and some Dave bought home from his other family in Sydney. In my Mums I found some nice old bits of retro and vintage prints, Some small pieces of Pinwale cord, some standard grey corduroy, some heavy black denim or drill of some kind and a nice piece of linen and another of velvet.
In the Sydney stash some jumbo cord and a nice standard red piece. more linen. Nice Summer weights fabric too.
Why do I never think to look to look at these pieces ?
Now my mind is ticking over how to make rust coloured or grey cord acceptable to Miss 6 and ready to seek out a pattern and try something new.
Hope my Aussie friends are keeping warm.
