It is a bit late ... But here is what caught my eye in October, or is new in my house this month.
- I am preparing my post-baby wardrobe and the Denver top pattern is SO going to have to be in it. I first saw it on Annie Cotton - and I just know that I will have to make it at some point. I am thinking a plaid version - a cosy fabric for the winter months, and a pattern that might hide the post-baby tummy.
- I may not be a complete beginner when it comes to sewing, but sometimes it is nice to be reminded of the basics - especially that there is always an 'ugly stage'.
- I had to wait a bit to get my new scarf - but I have been wearing every day since receiving it. I love A Peace Treaty story and how it ethically works with artisan workshops. I bought mine in the UK here. I am now hoping to make a hat that will go with it - hopefully with some naturally dyed yarn - but I am still looking for a pattern.
- I found a new UK-based Etsy shop that sells naturally dyed yarn - and I am hoping to start knitting in November with it. It sells more than just the one skein of the one colour - and therefore would allow me to make bigger project.
- I love that blouse and Pauline Alice's Autumn look (ok it was a September post, but I saw it in October) - such a great smart casual look!
- My vintage purchases of the month are now in my kitchen. A flour sifter (Portmeirion Totem) and a vintage tin. Love them! My kitchen is finally getting some personality.
- And finally I got some new comfy shoes to get ready for walking behind the pushchair - and they are vegan, but not too expensive, from Esprit. And they have zip on the sides, so my giant belly cannot stop me from wearing them!
I suppose we are coming to the most exciting month - we will be meeting Little Baby MiH soon - I am enjoying the remaining days before sleep deprivation, and also making the most of having just the one baby - although I cannot wait to be able to pick up Baby MiH again, so frustrating to be so slow at everything!
Has anything has caught your eyes this month... I would love to know!
