I finally finished a set of bunting that's taken me far too long to finish. I used some bias binding purchased from Cuba Street (similar to the stuff on this make). I used pinking scissors rather than finishing the seams. Looks good but I wonder if it lasts.
One of the wonderful girls from Fabric Hoarders organised a walk along the Skyline route in Wellington on Wellington anniversary day. I've been meaning to do the walk for ages. Isn't it wonderful when friends organise something I really want to do!
We were greeted along the top of Mt Kaukau by this wonderful beast and his friends.
As you would expect based on Wellington's windy weather, it was windy!!
Made Marion have a beautiful selection of elastics (not I didn't buy them all!)
I came home with 4m of the white elastic. And added it to the stash of fabric I had yet to record! I'm trying rather hard this year not to over purchase - ha! I've been saying that for a while ;) A stretch denim (2.2m of cotton lyra) from the fabric store VIP sale.
Two knits from the fabric warehouse. The pinkier fabric is Polyester (16%), Viscose (78%) and Lycra (6%), width of 132cm. The purple is Viscose (93%) and Lycra (7%).
And finally four merinos and two cottons from Levana (at the recent Fabric Hoarders Sewing Retreat). Four fabric remanents and only the red and strip off the bolts. Love that shop! 0.6m of black merino rib for $6. 1.2m black merino for $18. 1.2m of black and grey strip merino for $12. 1.2m of yellow cotton elastane for $9,60. 1m of red merino nylon for $12. 0.5m for yellow stripe cotton elastane for $5.
I'm usually rubbish at remembering to write down the length and fibre content. But I'm making a concerted effort!
