A Lovely Year of Finishes - February goal

Well, I'm off to a good start so far with one WIP out of the way. This month's goal is to make a social tote for my partner in the Sewing Room swap on Flickr.  I ordered my pattern from The Intrepid Thread and it arrived in a week.  Mail is so variable from the USA at the moment. I also placed an order for fabric from another online store 3 weeks ago and it is still sitting in a San Francisco sorting facility apparently, according to the tracking number. It sat for a week in Utah as well in another sorting facility, before going to SF.  Another order I placed with a different store arrived in 14 days, when their parcels usually arrive in a week. I am wondering if all that snow has something to do with it??

Anyway, I fabric for the tote arrived yesterday, so I am keen to get this one started.

Fabric for social tote: Sewing Room Swap

I know my partner likes a wide range of designers and fabrics, but I think Suzuko Koseki is something she would really like so I am using a fabric from Suzuko's latest range for the outside and a Dear Stella dot for the inside. Those minty greens are a perfect match for one another.

Linking up with 


  1. Love the new look to the blog! These are very pretty fabrics and lovely pattern. The weather could be a huge factor as roads and airports have been closed with the area storms. But three weeks seems a bit long to sit within the US.

  2. Gorgeous fabrics - that's going to be an awesome tote. I have some fabric mail sitting in Chicago when I last checked :-(

  3. Must be the snow - hope my orders aren't delayed - have projects to get made then posted to Australia for a March 1 birthday.
