I think the summer tends to dull my inspiration for knitting – the heat can do that to a person. I have officially put the cardigan aside and decided to go with the green cotton pictured below.


Beside is going to be my first sewing project using the sewing machine I got for my birthday last month that I still haven’t even plugged in! The fabric is so beautiful that I’m making the entire skirt out it instead of using a different fabric for the yoke. There I go changing the pattern already with my first project. Here’s an up close shot of the fabric:


It’s a bit blurry (my camera’s not that great), but you get the idea. The lady bugs are metalic gold – so pretty. I hope I don’t mess up the pattern because I would love to have this outfit to wear for Christmas or Thanksgiving.
