what i've been up too

Last week I went along to the North Melbourne Market and found a stall holder who sold vintage fabrics from the 1920's right up to the 70's. She sourced all her fabrics from the US and makes frequent trips to find more, she doesn't have a website and she doesn't do alot of markets so I'm so lucky I found her. I do have her email address and I'll let you know next time she sets up market shop.

With my pieces of vintage fabric I hope to make something from Pip's new book and I hope to add some of my Japanese gingham bias to the finished garment. Fingers crossed I find some time to get it started.

I've also been visiting a new cafe in the local area and I bought myself some new comfy red shoes, I found them at Target so they are nice and cheap too!

Absolutely love those fabrics! Great score. I'd love to hear when she's about next.
How good are comfy shoes... such a necessity these days.
Hope all is going well with your gorgeous little man & I hope you're looking after yourself too.
