I was in London and Glasgow for work at the end of June (which was fab!) and oh boy do I miss the UK. All the lovely sewing magazines, fab fabric stores and obviously all the buzz that has spread from the Great British Sewing Bee. Talking of which do you my dear readers watch it? I've still not watched series 3, it's on my to-do-list, maybe when I'm on hols next week ...
I did once again end up buying a pattern even though I'm not supposed to, but Tilly's Ariel skirt is just too cute to resist. I think I'd quite like a red one for the autumn (or for the non-existent summer we're having here!) I'm a bit miffed that Bettine pattern only came after I'd come home otherwise I would have bought too, see no self-control I tell you. And I might have bought a copy of Love Sewing magazine as it had a cute tea dress pattern included...Ooopss. I fell in love with the John Lewis haberdashery section in Glagsow, who wouldn't want a pink sewing machine?
Accidental shopping (sans Ariel pattern)
We're off to Tallinn coming weekend I've heard that they have amazing fabric stores there, I may need to visit one or three. Any recommendations dear readers? Anyhow that's all for now, I'm going to go dust my poor neglected sewing machine now. Hope you're having a more productive summer than me!
