I did have high hopes this month, cutting out 2 skirts and also making a new top, however the skirts haven’t progressed very far at all and the top, well all I have left to do is put in the sleeves and all I can say is that we are not talking to each other at the moment.
Thankfully my Marfy top was finished in February so I did manage to get one garment completed.
My other news is that a few weeks ago I received an email from Becki wanting to know my address as she had some fabrics that were orphans and they needed a new home and look what the postman delivered.
and inside packed in a Mood Designer Fabric bag was 5 pieces of gorgeous fabric:
Top to bottom:
- Liberty of London Tana Lawn
- Brown Wool that has a pattern woven into it
- Silk charmeuse animal print
- Silk cotton
- Aubergine Wool Gaberdine
as well as two of the cutest Marfy labels
This is a very generous gift and has saved me from trying to find the Aubergine wool that was on my wish list!
Now February’s Curating Challenge was to find 10 of your most favourite pieces of fabric and here they are:

Why do I love them so much!
Most of them are wonderful memories of friendship and travel, as well as being in my colour palette and fitting in with my lifestyle. Some are fabrics I wanted to challenge myself with e.g. 3ply gortex for a jacket and there is cashmere and camel wool for coats and jacket and the bottom row is for tops and a cardigan and a denim jacket, they were all purchased with a plan and so far that plan has not changed.
Doing this has now made me realise that I need some bottom weight green in my stash, I have the rust and browns to go with the multi coloured sweater knit and fine cord on the end, but some lovely moss or deep olive could be very handy!
