Here in the UK we have all been enjoying the celebrations for the Queens Diamond Jubilee - the coverage on the TV has been wonderful. We are making our way back into London tomorrow, so we may see some more when we get there.
Saturday we were back at the cottage for an hour or so before Mike set off for Plymouth to collect his son's belongings from his son's student house and wasn't due back until today. This gave me the weekend to get on with some sewing projects, in particular knocking off some more of the shirts to reach my quota of 10, and a little trip to Walthamstow market with my twin sister to look for some more fabrics for the shirts - and as usual I found some fabulous fabrics again.
The pink shirt was one of the new fabrics, check out the design near the shirt tails - its a paint brush. This of course will be hidden when the shirt is tucked into Mike trousers but I thought it was quirky. As you can see the pink shirt is 5/10. The blue stripe is 4/10 and was fabric from my stash. I have used the white contrast on this shirt. No 6/10 is cut out and will be ready to be sewn during the week. So I have now sewn half a designer handbag ha ha.
