My youngest son’s school is having its Summer Fete next week end and I have been busy making LOADS of bunting … over 130 meters! I hung some of it round the “my sewing room”/”the study” to see how the spacing between the flags was, looks ok to me. I used up a lot of my sewing scraps from over a very long period of time and it was interesting looking at the colours and what fabrics I have chosen to sew with over the years. I think I have quite eclectic taste and use a bit of everything but it also seems I like a lot of red, orange, green and denim! It quite surprised me to see those choices but it is true that they are probably my favourite colours/fabrics. And quite a bit of African print fabric too, a few with wacky designs like stilettos or handbags, (two other things I love, ha!), given to me by my fabulous friend Louise. As I went through the pieces of fabric I could remember each garment I had made with it and it was a lovely trip down memory lane. I found some fabric from a skirt I made for my honeymoon and some Mini Cooper print and horses print that I used to make pillow covers for each of my boys. They still both sleep with them every night …. ahhhh! Here it is all boxed and ready to go! Back to “selfish sewing” hooray!
