I have been trying to accelerate packing up things at Lawson for the next move of furniture to our home in Kandos. This week I tackled the "54 drawers" cabinet. About ten of those drawers had my patch-working fabric stash from when I did quilts over 30 years ago. It was quite a trip down memory lane to finger the fabrics again, among them were scraps from dresses I made back in my school and uni days.
A book I have read recently
This week's book is another on the Australian list, The Dressmaker by Rosalie Ham. I saw the movie adaptation and found it interesting but rather odd. The book is a quirky dark comedy with a huge caste of amusing but stereotypical characters. I enjoyed it but mostly I liked being reminded of how much I enjoyed sewing my own clothes. I think I might rewatch the movie to see what I think of it now and maybe start a patch-working project.
