for the past month or so I've been living on the south coast of England and attending Bournemouth University doing a short course, which I passed. Phew what a relief! But a girl can't just work and not play so I managed to get to the european PR get together in Brussels. I had taken my (lightweight) obligatory piece of ugly material with me for the fabric swap and of course ended up with a piece in return. this is my booty from the swap-it night.
The shirt pattern and the Knip Mode were a gift from Sigrid (see my blog roll) and the Patrones was from Marta, from Brazil. Were were quite an international bunch.
The knip mode had some nice summer things
I'm not interested in these pants though...
The Patrones had a gorgeous coat with a high wrap collar
There's one thing I didn't notice at first. It's in a size 50 and I'll have to grade down. It'll be a challenge but I'll give it a go when I get the chance.
Here is my not-so-ugly fabric. I don't have enough to make a big shirt. It'll have to be a little summer blouse
or maybe a knee length skirt with a few pleats into the waistband?
Anyway goodbye from the seaside. It was 18 degrees C yesterday. I even went for a paddle, but my Aussie feet went numb after a bout five minutes!
Got to go pack and catch a train. I'll do a proper post about Brussels soon.
