Today I had two parcels waiting for me. One of them was some yummy yarn, from Colourmart UK. It is cotton with silk in some rather pale purple color. I was quite happy to receive it as it was the second package they send me in two weeks as the first one got lost somewhere on the way. But people in Colourmart were absolutely fantastic, as soon as I let them know that I have received the package they sent me the second one straight away.
I am planning to make a lovely crochet cardi with it, inspired by this Oscar de la Renta cardi. There is a CAL here.
The second package was Couture Sewing Techniques book by Claire B. Shaeffer. I looked at it for some time, but ordered it only last week, after seeing Go Chanel or Go Home blog. It is Sew-along where lots of lovely ladies made a jacket based on couture techniques used in jackets made by Chanel house. I am very happy that I found that blog, it has lots of information and photos of different project. I fell very inspired. Now I am on a hunt for some Chanel style fabric. I actually need a jacket to wear to a formal party in couple of weeks, but I wonder if I hae time to make anything.
