We don't go far, oh no, driving for more than, oh, 25 minutes would seem like hard work. So we go all the way to Mapua, where there are good shops and cafes and lots of cute holiday houses to rent.
This time I really did get some serious crafting done. I knitted a little, mended my favourite winter trousers, and sewed two matching pillowcases. Here is one of them.
And I was going to cut out skirt C from this fabric, but I had doubts at the 11th hour about the fashion sense of it all. My craft companion said, with a furrowed brow, "I think you are right to be worried."
Hmmm, yes the entire skirt in brown and blue woollen plaid might have been a bit matronly, but I still love that sweet and slightly dorky woollen fabric, and I so want to wear it in some form. What are your suggestions, readers? Make the skirt using the wool only for the front the panel, with the rest in corduroy? Add a trim? Bias tape? What are you thinking?
