A common theme running certainly isn’t intentional, but perhaps subliminally  I have paid attention to the advice that women of ‘a certain age’ should wear white next to their face [women’s magazines used to be full of advice like that!]

January sewing 012             new moda 003pink striped shirt Nov.3. 2013 002

Whether or not I paid attention, I have just bought some burgundy striped shirting fabric to make yet another shirt, seems I can’t stop, and was currently debating whether or not a completely burgundy stripe would look just too much and shouldn’t I add a white collar,  when I suddenly realised that if I wasn’t very careful I would end up with a closet full of coloured shirts/blouses with white collars. But the urge is very compelling and I don’t know that I am strong enough to resist  the siren call of lovely crisp white collars on striped shirts. I really can’t decide at the moment, so will just make a giant leap of faith and press ahead with an all striped shirt and see what it looks like…..a collar is easily changed after all.


I love all things creative and an eternal enthusiast. I am enduringly interested in absolutely everything remotely creative and never happier than when being shown 'how to'.
