Want some fabric?

Yeah, I'm sure you do, but before I get to that I must thank Chrisy of Sophism Press. Chrisy has designed two lovely capelet patterns which I received today in my email. She was extremely generous and gave the pattern away to all who commented on her blog post. Now if you know me, I'm sure you are thinking, "Sara doesn't crochet." And yes, that is true. I could learn, or I could outsource. I think I'll be hitting Tracy up for some of her crochet skills very soon.

So these home renos...well, they are starting. Starting....TOMORROW! Yes, I am screaming. Yes, I am freaking out. The builders said they would start NEXT Monday, but I had a phone call at 4:30 this afternoon asking if they could start tomorrow. I have to clear out the kitchen because they are kindly moving some of the cabinets and my stove into the dining room to create a makeshift kitchen. I thought I was going to have next weekend to do that!

Oh yes, the fabric! I dyed this fabric ages ago. It is organic cotton rib knit. It's 100% cotton.

I had plans, but I never got around to them, and now I doubt that I will. Each piece is about 50cm long. I think the fabric width is around 140cm, but might be 150cm. So I've decided that a lovely reader of my blog should get it. Leave a comment, and I will use a random number generator or get one of my assistants to draw a name.

Well, you gotta love a builder that's keen to start - hopefully that means they'll be keen to finish too!! Try not to freak about the clean up but I totally understand if you are freaking lol.

Oh and of COURSE you can enter me in your fabric drawer :)

I just found your blog, but I love your work. I never cared for the Redondo before seeing your rainbow. And your rainbow Antonias are so awesome. Very inspiring!
