Wardrobe Wednesday - final remix

I'm joining in with Wardrobe Wednesday on Sailor Spy


Wardrobe Wednesday at SailorSpy.co.nz Today I'm wearing:

 My Jetty tunic of course
with a very old button-down shirt from Max
my Wrangler Jeans and my crocheted beanie with flowers on it. 

It was a tad chilly this morning so the hat was called for.    You can't see, but I'm also wearing my Doc Marten slip-on shoes which are also years old and are a burgundy patent leather.

Yesterday I got the ditching done on my quilt, took a fair bit of time and I'm paying for it today with sore shoulders, but it was worth it!
I can't show you what she looks like now as there are still more steps to go and I want to show the finished object next.  Some of my ditching isn't quite in the ditch, but considering this is my first proper quilt I'm fairly pleased.   I don't really count George's quilt several years back as that was huge blocks and was all done with the walking foot and no clue.
Btw, see the white on the machine side of the quilt?   That's the wool blanket I'm using as batting and it's fighting the process.  It's much heavier than batting so makes it harder to manipulate.   I showed it to Thomas last night unfinished and he asked hopefully if it was going on our bed; obviously he likes it!    It's going to be in the lounge though and George's quilt will probably be done before ours; our quilt is going to be really difficult being king sized and I want a bit more experience under my belt before I get back to that.

In knitting news I knit several rows on the test-sock last night, then re-read the pattern and tinked all those rows back.   Not the patterns fault, my reading skills apparently failed.

Finally, on Monday I dropped into Bolt of Cloth while I was waiting for the car to be ready, I spent all my spending money on 1m of fabric.   Today I went in and picked it up:
I have been looking for this stuff for ages!  I was thinking a skirt, but I'm not sure I have quite enough so now considering a bag instead.   It must be shown off.

Thank-you, it's a favourite of mine. I need to knit it again one day as a dress; just got to get or spin the yarn.

Your hat is super cute! I love that Kokka fabric too - it will make an awesome bag :)

I really really like your beanie. And also the fabrics you've chosen for your quilt are really lovely.

looking good - and I have a very similar style hat which I was going to wear today (mine is grey). It's been chilly here too, although sunny (we had a frost this morning!)I love the look of your quilt - it's inspiring me to get back into another quilting project! Jenny
