Mothers day with Christian Dior

Silk thread arranged in a chocolate box… aren’t the greenish blue colours just the prettiest? Very little fabric in my stash to match unfortunately…

This weekend was a lazy weekend… if you don’t count a few chores like laundry! But I awoke on my first Mother’s day to be greeted by smiles and hugs, a cute gurgle from Little Prince and a hot cup of coffee. Really can’t complain about that.

I spent a bit of time organising some of my notions, including my chocolate box full of silk thread… what is it about colours that are just so delicious to look at? The chocolate box is appropriate! I find an array of colour inspiring, sort of like a slab of blank paper makes me want to draw or write, pretty thread or fabric makes me want to sew, sew, sew!

I love creating in its many forms.

Today’s  pattern is Vogue Paris Original 1185, a 1950s Dior. The model in the illustration reminds me of the character played by Audrey Hepburn in the movie Funny Face.
