Just a quick post to share with you my latest additions to both my fabric stash and embellishment collection.
Firstly I bought some pearl beads. A few days ago I came upon a beautiful dress from Heidi and Finn that was embellished with pearl beads and I liked the idea. So when I saw them in a shop I decided to buy some. I still don't know when or where I am going to use them but I reckoned that it would be useful to have them in case I need them one day, hopefully sooner.
I also found that sometimes when I look through my fabrics, buttons or embellishments, ideas pop into my mind. You can actually find a lot of inspiration just by looking at them.
My second purchase was this piece of fabric. It is cotton and doesn't have much drape. And the pattern is lovely. I plan to use it for making a feminine blouse or tunic for my little cupcake. I still haven't decided on the design, though. I keep changing my mind all the time. I won't be able to start it before next week anyway, so still have time to think.
It would be a busy weekend for me. We are going back to UK, so there will be lots of packing and unpacking over the next few days.
