Ok guys, I tripped and fell into John Lewis today and in the process accidentally sort of on purpose bought two metres of this rather garishly delightful cotton. Question is, what to do with it?
It wouldn’t be my usual choice of colours, but it puts me in mind of something my granny might have picked if she was on acid. She was Scottish and really into all the bagpipes and tartan and shortbread (think Supergran) but I’m not sure she would have put pink and orange together. It was on sale though.
Anyway, dear readers, I’m up for a challenge. What should I make with this lovely stuff? All suggestions considered!

I have been doing much sewing recently and I have a lot to write about. I have some time on a train tomorrow so I may knock a few blog drafts out. Only thing is, they won’t include Moneta Mk. II cos I haven’t finished it. My progress has stalled because I’m not convinced that the standard foot for my machine won’t stretch the fabric out of shape. I can’t alter the feed tension on my machine (I have read the manual from cover to cover and no instructions on it), so I have decided to invest in a walking foot to ensure the fabric goes through evenly. I’ll get straight on to it once it arrives – just a shame I couldn’t properly participate in the sewalong. 😦
