No I didn't collapse in a heap after finishing my jacket, instead we went for a short trip to Singapore. Had a fabulous time with gorgeous weather - the only downer was losing my filofax/wallet so I lost all my cards, cash, diary and address book. I really hoped someone would hand it in, minus the cash even, so I filed a police report, but no news yet. But fortunately I only lost it after I had hit the shops and bought 3 pairs of shoes, some jeans, underwear (why do they sell my size in Singapore but not in Hong Kong, I don't get it?!) and some fabrics.
Here are the fabrics I got, an embroidered cotton, a printed georgette and a cotton embroidered border print.
Since I now have no access to money, my husband gave me some at the beginning of the week which lasted me quite well, but today I finally found the red shoes I have been looking all year for. They were really cheap, from H&M, but I had to completely empty my purse to afford them. Then I had to walk home in the rain, but it's worth it. Priorities!!
I'm going back to visit my family and friends in the UK in a months time, including my Spanish (but living in London) sister in law who is my Patrones dealer. So I feel I really had better produce something from these magazines instead of just looking at the pictures and that's going to be my focus. I'm working on wearable muslins for the dress I started a while back and also a red wrap top which is nearly there and looking good. See I really just had to get those shoes!
