Time for atrophy of the fabric pile...

Every act of creation is first an act of destruction
- Pablo Picasso


Earlier this year I went a bit mad buying up fabric.
There was always a project in mind, 
and I planned to have time to make these, 
but somehow that didn't work out.


I now find myself at the start of my holidays finally making another start at shrinking the pile.

Today was the start of a new item...



Hopefully it will be finished it in the next few days for revealing :)


I work a stripy red shirt, high waisted pants (from last holidays sewing) 
and my new glasses I picked up at a red cross store.


They seemed like fun, and the tortoise shell look frames made them irresistable.

Can you guess what my latest project might be?
