Fallston for my mother


Back after two weeks of illness (some kind of flu).  It's has been such fantastic weather but today we're back on rain and wind (that's normal actually at this time of the year). Two weeks ago I finished the Fallston shawl for my mother.  The pattern is by Dee O'Keefe , and the yarn is from Fiberspates, Vivacious 4ply. I really love it! It's merino wool so it's lovely soft to wear.
I'm planning some new sewing projects to make. Two dresses and a jacket. So after posting this post I will be starting with drafting patterns. I'll keep you up to date!
I've been a bit uninspired lately when it comes to sewing, but with the BBC's series The Sewing Bee back on tv I'm getting my sewing motivation back.

Two weeks ago I went with friends to the Handwerkfair in Zwolle. I've never been there before, but I loved it! There was so much to see. I was full with inspiration but then I got pretty ill and all the plans I was making to do stuff were out of my mind. But now I feel better and plans are returning.

I hope you'll have a lovely Sunday, see you soon,
