Finally - me and the camera, in the same place, at the same time! Here are the photos I promised you.
First of all, three of the four pencilrolls. I don't know what happened to the fourth one, which was all made out of Isadora Phoenix's Woodstock Ombre Dots .... I can't find it. Perhaps the Fatpuss has eaten it. (He went to the vet today for a weigh-in, and since he's been on a diet, he's GAINED four hundred grams. Four hundred! Sigh.)
But here are the other three. I think I like the one on top best, made from Birds of Norway fabric, matched with the orange polkadots.
And here are the fabric buckets I made, out of the Heather Bailey Bijoux Tiles fabrics. And at the front is the strange "boat" that I created when I sewed together the wrong edges of what should have been a bucket.
I blame the instructions, they said "fold fabric lengthways and sew raw edges together". Would you not think that means to match up the two long edges? Well, exactly. It's what I thought too. But no, when they said "lengthways" what they actually meant was "widthways". Silly me. So now I have an odd boat instead of a bucket.
And here are my doorstops all ready to be filled with sand ahead of the market on Saturday. It's been so wet recently that I think I'm going to have to dry the sand in the oven before I can use it.
And lastly, the piece of resistance from Rathdowne Remnants - my lolly pink / calomine lotion coloured wool and cashmere blend. I love it!
It's a very late Sixties kind of colour in my book, and I'm really looking forward to having a suit made, and then wearing it to my very conservative work environment. I love bringing colour into that place, it's like a giant injection of vibrancy into a dark, dark world.
