I went a little crazy shopping yesterday.

It first happened during lunch.  There’s a little cardigan shop at Far East Plaza called Cotton Candy and I bought 4 cardigans.


Check out the cute embriodery on the pink cardi!embroidery

Then, there was a Spotlight sale.  20% off ALL items.  I couldn’t resist.  These are my spoils:

Ribbons.  Lots of Ribbons.blue-shades



Then there was thread.  Gutermann’s SULKY threads. *heart*sulky-threads1

Honestly, I have no idea what I’m going to do with the threads.  But they looked like candy to me, sitting there all prettilyon the shelf and I could not contain my excitement, especially when I saw that awesome purple, green and silver metallic multi-coloured spool.

AND I am still waiting for my May Arts ribbons to arrive in the mail. =P

Oh, and I also bought a dress, skirt and belt from GG<5 too.  =PP

sweet, sweet polka dots

Mr C will find these 2 fabrics familiar. Or not, I hope. =P

I bought them from a really expensive fabric shop in Melbourne back in April of 2006.  I remember they cost me a bomb and Mr C was astonished at how much I spent.  But it’s been 3 years now, and I don’t remember how much the bomb costs. -_-”

So anyway, I’ve been meaning to make a pretty sun dress out of them, but never got down to finding a right pattern/design.

Over the last few weekends, I’ve been thinking hard about what to do with them.  Cos if I don’t get them made into something, the next time I want to get new fabrics, Mr C will have the chance to say, “But you haven’t even used the fabrics you bought 3 years ago!” Haha!

So off I went to the dressmaker’s on Saturday.  And my Easter dress will be ready for a preliminary fitting 2 Saturdays from now… *rubs hands with glee*

Can’t wait to see how it turns out.
