i heart tunic tops

I'm standing here to hide the cobwebs on the wall and it seemed like a good idea at the time. This is the third top I've made with this pattern and I love it, and the culottes. The black fabric is a good ol' cotton drill, but the red print is a linen/cotton blend from Spotlight - which I bought the last 1.5 metres of. I wouldn't be able to wear the print on it's own but it works perfectly as an accent/contrast.
And of course there needs to be somewhere for the phone!

Oh and the strapping on the ankle is because I rolled it, quite badly this time. It's been a week and a half now, it doesn't hurt too much unless I leave the bandage off for a while. I've rolled, twisted and even fractured my skinny ankles so many times (though only fractured once!) you'd think they'd just be rubber now. She'll be right.No it's not a foggy winters morning, this is smoke on a Tuesday afternoon. Bushfire smoke. I think most of the state was covered in this foul smelling stuff. Fortunately today the wind has turned and the temperature dropped - you'd never known it was like this yesterday.

Other news of note can be seen on my quilting blog - so exciting!!


  1. Jen, I really like your blouse... and the coordinating red/white fabric.

    The phone pocket is ideal! Great idea.

    Congrats on the "other news of note"...

    I should write about my two antique/vintage machines... so much to write about now... LOL.


  2. I know what you mean. I'm thinking I should have a separate folder in my Flickr account just for sewing machines!

    I'd love to see photos of your sewing machines too.

    Keep saving those pennies for a serger!!
