Personally I blame Jane

You know it is Jane's fault
For quite a while I've been trying to resist spending very much at all on fabric.
The financial situation across the world's markets this past wee while has meant our monthly mortgage payments on our house have increased by over £120 per month in gradual stages since we moved in two years ago last Sunday. Now I fully realise we made the choice to buy this house and take on this level of mortgage and I'm not moaning or blaming anyone, just giving the reason why I'm being extra careful about spending on fabric and non-essentials.
However when I read about Jane's purchases from ebay I couldn't resist taking a look and here was the result.
Now before poor Jane thinks I'm having a go at her I must state I am an adult and thus totally capable of looking after my own purse strings - at no time did she twist my arm up my back and force me to spend any money.
Mind you the piece including postage and packaging only cost £5.24 which works out at £3.49 per yard so I reckon it was a good buy as English prices go - so actually thank you Jane you did me a favour really :o) but don't tell Nigel!
And on top of that look how nicely it plays with the fabrics Siobhan sent me the other day - now I'm sure I must have some matching pale pink in my pink box somewhere.....................

One of the things about reading blogs is the "planting an idea" factor. I might not come up with so many ideas on my own but I get so inspired when I read around the blogs. But it sure it fun!

I just LOVE your colour combinations. It seems to me, you can never put a colour wrong! So to speak!
Cant wait to see what this becomes.

I broke up with Ebay some time ago for that very reason!!! But you did score a bargain so all is well :)

Great buy on Ebay! No, I won´t buy anything, no I won´t buy... Mind you my DS lives in GB, so I could send her the link!
You had a great idea with your DD and her friend. I am looking forward to seeing their first top.
Take care.
