Autumn colors

In the last week it really feels like autumn has arrived and with it my desire for snuggly comfortable fabrics, in warm colors. Perfect timing then as Girl Charlee in the UK is having a massive sale until Sunday.

I really should have a child lock on my internet – one that is set to impede fabric buying late at night. As on Tuesday night I went a little wild and ordered myself four new wonderful knits and they arrived in the post this morning! Opening the package up, I was struck by how beautiful all the colors are together and how very autumnal they are. To be on the safe side I bought two meters of each as I’m planning a few cowl  neck, long sleeve tops and the cowl is a fabric eater.

From left to right they are: white pin dot on navy  (cotton rayon blend knit), heather burnt orange (100% cotton jersey knit), brown maroon orange mod circles (90%cotton 10% Spandex knit) and mustard yellow (95% cotton 5% spandex). I can’t wait for the weekend to get started!

  1. Snap!! I was unwell Wednesday and had the day to scour the internet and came across a sale with girl charlee. After being impressed with the quality of their fabric earlier this month and a new love for sewing jersey, I ended up buying some floral jersey for a dress and sweatshirt fabric to make a skirt!
