Fabric....of the dragonish sort
I just finished risking life and limb at the local fabric shop. They're having a members 50% off sale (plus they are going to be closing the store the end of March) so...the place was absolutely packed and was a complete and total zoo. I battled my way through the madding crowd (whilst poor long suffering husband waited in the car...his own fault because he was warned) and finally found something that spoke 'dragon' to me.
His main body will be the patterned, with the gold being his tummy, and the orange-y sheer his wings. I also picked up a piece of black sheer which is another alternative for wings. The pattern arrived in the mail yesterday so now I'm good to go. Can't wait to get started! If you want to see what I'm doing, you can check it out on Amy's blog.
I also picked up enough fabric to create myself a long overdue housecoat, along with a stash of thread and another small piece of dupioni silk (my treat to myself every time there's a big sale - otherwise I can't afford it).
Now I'm off to dream of dragons!
EDITED TO ADD: Tristan is having a wonderful giveaway on his blog to commemorate his 300th follower and his 200th post. He's giving away some pretty exciting stuff so pop on over and have a look, and while you're there, why not become a follower too?
