I went shopping today, to my favourite RTW shop, a British chain called Monsoon.
Look what I found:
I was really taken with it but couldn't think why.... until I remembered this:
Tee hee - the shop version costs £55!
Charolette.... what in the world is Snuff????????? I assume some type of book or pattern?? around
here snuff is a disgusting powder they dip and spit !!! lol
Well.. I will have to check the book out.. I dont read alot any more [use to all the time...need to read a good book agian].
Charolette..did you know what snuff is?? what you dip and spit ? ha
I do indeed love all of his books (my current favorite is Nation - one of the best books I ever read), but you're right even the seamstresses are a bit on the lazy side when it comes to sewing :-)
Have you read "I shall wear mightnight"? I would like to sew the dress Tiffany gets in the end sometimes, if I'll ever become that good...
I love all TP's books and still have a soft spot for one of the first ones I ever read - Wyrd Sisters - I like Nation too though ...
I did make a black top for a challenge here and called it "I shall wear midnight" (that's how I know Jen likes TP, but the top was so horrid I should be ashamed of myself calling it that.....
I am so glad that everyone else had suggestions for this. My quilting has been mostly triangles and squares. No applique. It would be fun to have a go at it though. Love to see the colour combinations that everyone comes up with.
As for Snuff!! Yess!!!! I ordered it from the Book Depository and it was delivered while I was on holiday. As I had it sent to my work address it was sitting on my desk when I went to work on Monday. I started it at lunchtime and then read most of it that evening and finished it off Tuesday. Really enjoyed it - but won't give any spoilers :-)
Thanks everyone, so many good suggestions, I am so happy to see all your ideas, you are all so generous with your time and support, thank you xxxxxx

PPS I think we are all off to Blue Mountain to our sewing Maw's later on xxxxx
