The wet west coast of (Southern) New Zealand. Dancing, storming, moaning, laughing. Usually in the rain.

Blue merino Appleton
I finished my first Appleton yesterday, and persuaded my daughter to take a picture. I didn't follow instructions and line the shoulder point up correctly, but otherwise I'm really pleased with it. The fabric was $8 per metre in the Fabric Store bargain bin. I'd make this again. Next time I will lengthen the sleeves and I will make two right fronts. The amount of crossover isn't as much as I would like. I'd like to do this in Lillestoff fabric next time.
I've also made another pair of Endeavour Trousers (Cake Patterns) and another Gillian wrap top (Muse Patterns). I really like them both, and will share if I organise myself to iron and find a photographer.
