It’s my birthday month!

The 28th of February (only 10 days away) is my birthday. I will be fully 71 years old. And I always indulge myself for my birthday ๐Ÿ™‚

I just ordered the Olya Shirt from Paper Theory, the most expensive pattern I’ve ever purchased. But I love the vibe and the back story. It will be wonderful over jeans.

Today, I also went for 5 fabrics from Cali Fabrics. And I’m on the hunt for more before the end of the month, lurking those Presidents Day sales. I was down to only one fabric in my stash! I really really need to remedy that… So 4 French terry knits and one rayon challis (for that beautiful shirt pattern).

To say I am grateful, blessed, happy – an understatement. Ciao – Coco

  3. Happy birthday month! Enjoy all your new fabrics, and I look forward to seeing your version of the new pattern. I’ve never run across that pattern until now.

  4. Oh my goodness, the Olya shirt….I made something almost identical to this many years ago. I wish I could remember the pattern. I used a relatively stiff/crisp cotton that never softened so it ended going some where else to live but I remember really liking the style. Those were the days that if something didn’t work, I didn’t try again. I’ve learned a lot since than.

    Happy Birthday! You are so kind and generous, you deserve to indulge.

  5. You have given us a birthday present, Coco. A new pattern line? The shirt looks just different enough to make it unique. Another white blouse??? Always room! Happy birthday, Coco, I wish you a healthy year filled with sewing wonders!
