Update: Autumn Winter Wardrobe 2012

    1. So much sewing! Gosh I love that wool - where did you find it?

      1. The Fabric Store last Saturday. I walked in and grabbed it straight away. No need to look at the other options. I was in LOVE! $48 per metre. Go for it!

    2. Your output level is ahhhmazing! I don't know how you do it! :)
