Things I'm loving.

Just some things...
This bag, well not this one exactly, but one like it should be arriving for me any day now. I'm super excited! I've had two very, old leather bags break recently and kinda 'need' a new one. Yes, I could have found a cheaper one, but I sewed a few extra bonnets to get this one. When will the postman arrive??
This cushion is just stunning. I'm sure I can knock one up myself, possibly while I make my Hello Birdie cushion from the Red Thread pattern that I received at Set It Together.
I also love this one. Clearly I'm into flowery, birdie cushions at the moment. When will I find the time?? I still have this long crochet project to work on. Eeek - I haven't touched it since January!
I'm really keen to make a vibrant coloured full skirt. I have one in pieces in my sewing space. I'm just waiting for a few moments to get it moving. My one is based a new Cynthia Rowley pattern Simplicity 2215. I'd also like to make the short sleeve version of  Cynthia Rowley Simplicity 2497, but just need to find a nice fabric.

Speaking of fabric, I have a crush on these fabrics from Tessuti, but am a little short of funds and need to knock over some other projects using stuff from the stash, before I worry about anything new.
This is a linen, viscose black check, perfect for Vogue 8028.
This Japanese seersucker and rayon cotton blend look amazing, but heading into winter I have no immediate need for them - bum!

Speaking of Tessuti, why do they always review patterns that you can no longer buy?? Now I want to make Tova dress out of posh wool/cotton liberty. Does anyone have a copy I can borrow? I promise I'll  keep the factory folds.

Lastly, I can afford the download for Butterick 5600 and I do have some lovely, soft, drapey rayon twill in red, in my stash, that might make it fun.... so much to do, so little time.

That's enough of my blabbering for now. Tell me - what do you love right now??
