tute tuesday (or not) ...

Today was meant to be "tute Tuesday". As I am not doing my printing class this term I thought I would carry on trying to learn something on Tuesday mornings. The plan was to sit down and work through the Photoshop book. Yeah right, best laid plans and all that.

Instead I had a visitor bearing gifts. A friend of my Aunt's came over to my neck of the woods to go to Stash Yarns and she called in for coffee and to bequeath some of her fabric stash to me.

There are lots of different colours, patterns, fibres - plains, spots, stripes, plaids, florals of all hues and tones. Some pieces are quite small others are larger and a lot of them hold special memories so I feel very honored to have them.

I have been thinking that I would like to get some containers to stash all the small pieces of fabric in. All separated into their different colour families - oh so very Denyse Schmidt. She has huge metal containers but I think I could probably get away with some small plastic ones.

Also in my thoughts - the purple coat and I am coming round to the vividness of it but I think it needs some embellishing. I am thinking of two stripes jumbo rick rack one in a grey and the other in a pinky colour attached to the cuffs and hem. I feel a trip to vv rouleux coming on...

Wow, I hope you made her a very special cup of coffee!

Rick rack on your coat sounds like a great idea - I predict a ton of "Where did you get that?" questions.

Ric rac could work, definitely. Or maybe a thin strip of fabric - fusible appliqued? I think it's great how it is, too - you will definitely be asked 'Where did you get that?' - a lot. such a pretty coat! :)

A stash of fabric, and Stash Yarns - too much fun! VV Rouleaux is just such a huge temptation, my DH used to work on Marylebone High Street and I loved to dive in there...
