Sunday Sevens - 27th September

1. Working downtown for the day so got to have nice lunch and coffee.... Very tasty  Black Forest mocha.

2. The fabric I won from Natalie's giveaway arrived. It's a beautiful vibrant cotton sateen. I wasn't really sure what to expect, but it's got a good weight and stretch. As much as we all love making pretty dresses, I really wear separates a lot more so I think this will become some trousers. I'm trying to sew more of what I actually wear rather than getting drawn in to whichever pattern is the current blogsphere craze, but it's so hard to resist!!! 

3. In preparation for winter in Alberta I really really needed more insulating layers (honest guv!). Never mind that I already have a feather and a synthetic one, what I obviously needed was wool. And posh expensive wool at that...

4. Illuminatia Garden and Lantern festival at Calgary Zoo. Quite cool, but I was wandering around by myself and feeling at bit gloomy. Hopefully Mal will be here when they do the Zoo Christmas lights and we can go together!

5. Creative Stitches show, and manning the booth for the Calgary MQG. Nice to get involved and meet more Guild ladies, but the show was a bit quiet and small. I didn't even do any shopping...

7. Finished my Cookie blouson, and look the seams match!! I should really take more photos and write a full blog post....

The Sunday Sevens series is the brainchild of Natalie at Threads and Bobbins.  You can find out more (and join in!) here.

  1. I'm really pleased you like the fabric - I think it will make great trousers! I'm very impressed with those illuminated animals, what a cool idea...hopefully the Christmas spirit will make you feel less gloomy though :-)
