On Saturday I ventured into the city to meet up with some of Melbourne, Sydney and Tasmanias sewing bloggers. Having been incredibly lazy and RSVP’d about, oh an hour before I was quite nervous meeting everyone.
Everyone was LOVELY. We all got along really well, even before we moved on from Tessuti and started getting a little boozy.
A big thanks to the lovely Kat who collected all our names and blogs on a Tessuti bag. If you want some more fab blogs for your reader and to inspire you, check them all out 🙂

Fabulous ladies who are blog-less.
I was determined not to come home with any fabric other than some black ponti. FAIL. When I got home I tried to hide my large Tessuti bag behind my legs…then dashed in a stashed it in my wardrobe. Can you tell I’d had a couple of beverages? The amusing thing about this odd behaviour is the husband could not care less.
So what is the fabric? I only picked up three pieces, and I adore all of them.
A black ponti to finish a renfrew (Imagine that!), a lightweight wool suiting for a cambie for work, and some calico for my cambie muslin. Which I was SO inspired by Kirsty’s elephant print cambie I cut out that very night. It was fantastic seeing all the me-made clothes that everyone was sporting. I got to try on Rachel’s infamous pink Minoru which fits quite nicely.
I kept trying to sneak off and sew all sunday but alas, we’re painting our hallway from Burgundy to….anything else. So I spent the day strippping paint and dreaming of fabric. Today is my day at home and this cambie muslin is going to happen.
Thank you so much ladies for a fantastic day, it was a blast and I can’t wait to do it again!
