Judgement Reserved.

Sorry, still no sewing, but it will start tomorrow!
I finally finished my court case yesterday with a trial. These sort of things normally get settled way before a trial date but my opponent isn't like this. All the while I have been studying the last three years, I have been in three levels of court. I have learned as much from this as I have from university. If you had said to me 4 years ago that I would have a degree and run 3 separate court cases in the next 4 years well, I would have laughed in your face! As well as doing this I realised today I have painted the whole inside of my house in the holidays so no wonder today I feel incredibly fatigued!Anyway judgement has been reserved and that means the Judge has heard our case, will go and read all the material thoroughly and make her decision. It can't be bad for me but could get really good, which is what I am hoping of course. Either way I gave it a go and did my best. 

However, with these monkeys off my back, I also feel …


This is my haul above....not bad!

This is a pique fabric in a delicious coral colour - the flash has made it a bit lighter... true colour is like on the far right. Two metres @ $8 pm. It is lovely.

This was a little remnant piece for $4 for 1/2 metre. Its an organza with these daisies embroidered on it. I see it as part of a t-shirt.

This is a sweater knit again a bit darker than this but thick and fabulous... nearly 2 metres for $10. This will get made into some sort of warm thing for our holiday in New Zealand in September.

This is a beautiful cotton/rayon that is sheer, fine and look at that sheen. 1 metre @ $8. This will be a floaty summer top.

This is two knit remnants... the dots is only about 50cm/140w but it was only .50cents and it was a trim for the other knit which was $4 for a huge remnant piece  and it has bird cages and is a pretty big print (I've seen this somewhere before but not sure where). I think dress or top with contrast dots..maybe enough for both. 

This is a love…
